MacB Is NOT a new fast food !
Written by Beacon Promos on Thursday, May 21, 2015 14:27:30 EST:

This week after Memorial Day marks the final production for Beacon in our beloved Black Box Theater.

And what does Lally pick? The Scottish Play (it's so evil, you're not supposed to say the name). So our take on it is "MacB", a streamlined, steam punked version of Shakespeare's darkest tragedy. Sex, violence, swash buckling: "Legally Blonde" it's not.

Tickets on sale lunchtimes in the Beacon lobby: $10 adults, $5 students, Faculty and staff free.

FIVE performances only: Thursday May 28 at 4PM,

Friday and Saturday at 4 and 7:30.

Don't miss two rising stars: Henry Bock as MacB, and Raechel Mizrahi as his doomed queen. Seriously.
