F r o m t h e T h e at r e Welcome to Actors Theatre and our Bingham Signature Shakespeare production of Macbeth. We are excited to start October with one of Shakespeare’s most enthralling and bloody stories of the thirst for power. This riveting tale explores the question: How far would you go to achieve your greatest ambition? With Fifth Third Bank’s Dracula also currently running in the Bingham Theatre, Actors Theatre has many thrills and chills for you as we move toward Halloween. The 2016–2017 Season continues with a collection of stories that will entertain, provoke conversation and tug at the heartstrings. In November, we bring you the music of Motown in Dominique Morisseau’s Detroit ’67. This deeply felt drama explores the history of Detroit in the 1960s through siblings Chelle and Lank, who run an unofficial nightclub in one of the city’s black neighborhoods. After Lank offers shelter to an injured white woman, they must confront simmering racial tensions within their home and the escalating race riots in their community. An award-winning playwright, Morisseau is no stranger to Actors Theatre. Also an accomplished performer, she co-starred in our 2013 production of The Mountaintop, a tribute to the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Morisseau’s Detroit ’67 is part of a three-play cycle she is developing, The Detroit Projects, focusing on her hometown. Her inspiration for this play cycle came from August Wilson’s acclaimed Century Cycle, an epic dramatization of the African American experience at different points in history. Next in our season, spirited holiday cheer will fill the theatre in our beloved production of Fifth Third Bank’s A Christmas Carol. Carol is the secondlongest continually running production in the country, and we are always delighted to bring back such a warm and joyous experience for the whole family each year. As we look forward to the holiday season, we hope that you will invest in imagination with us by giving the gift of theatre to your loved ones.
