Out of all of Shakespeare's plays that deal with governance, Macbeth might be the perfect distillation of the forces that drive men to strive for ultimate power. Staging a production of it during an election year is a canny move, but St. Louis Shakespeare gilds its lily by casting Maggie Winniger as Lord Macduff. Now when bloody-minded Macbeth (Ben Ritchie) vies against his former friend for the crown, the battle will be between a man and woman. (Wherever did they ever get that idea?) The always-excellent Michelle Hand plays Lady Macbeth, which should be a rare treat. St. Louis Shakespeare presents Macbeth at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (October 7 to 16) at the Ivory Theatre (7620 Michigan Avenue; There is a 7:30 p.m. performance on Thursday, October 13. Tickets are $15 to $20.
