“Laura Benanti Explains Shakespeare”: Macbeth

The Broadway and television star’s take on The Scottish Play is the most compressive overview of a play you’ll watch today.

As promised last week, here’s the first video in TheaterMania’s feverishly anticipated new infotainment series, “Laura Benanti Explains Shakespeare.” In it, Benanti not only condenses the plot in her own unique fashion, but also provides a look at several of history’s preeminent Macbeths (hint: we’re not talking Laurence Olivier).
