National Theatre Live: Macbeth 

When: Thu., May 17, 7 p.m. 2018
Price: $20
Shakespeare's Hamlet gets the plaudits as the best drama ever written, but it's mostly actors pushing that narrative. (Hamlet gets more time on stage than anyone, so of course thespians love the part.) In terms of actual drama and character development, however, Macbeth is the far superior play. A noble Scottish warrior feels the surge of power in the aftermath of a war he helped win and thinks more power might be just what he needs. His wife implores him to follow through on this plan, and when things get sticky she's there to do whatever is necessary. England's National Theatre has a new production of the dark tragedy in the works with Rufus Norris directing Rory Kinnear and Anne-Marie Duff as Lord and Lady Macbeth. You can see a recording of a live performance at 7 p.m. tonight at Marcus Wehrenberg Des Peres 14 Cine (12701 Manchester Road, Des Peres; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $20.
