STC’S Macbeth


AFTER THE SHOW. SOMETHING WICKED AND FABULOUS THIS WAY COMES AS MacBETH TAKES OVER THE SACRAMENTO THEATER COMPANY. WE GAVE IT TWO THUMBS UP. SHE IS WITH THE COSTUME SHOP MANAGER GETTING GLAM IT UP. WHAT’S UP? Reporter: DOUBLE DOUBLE TOILET TROUBLE. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? I HAVE ALL OF THOSE THAT HAVE JOINED ME AT THE SACRAMENTO THEATER. LADIES, TURN AROUND AND LOOK RIGHT THERE. MARIANNE, I KNOW YOU WERE TURNING AWAY FROM THEM WHEN YOU WERE IN THE THEATER ON SUNDAY. A LITTLE BIT TOO REALISTIC. Reporter: THEIR EYES. [ LAUGHTER ] SHE IS FANTASTIC. HAVING A LOT OF FUN. JESSICA, I AM GOING TO PULL YOU IN. YOU ARE THE MAIDEN OF THE COSTUMES. I REALLY WANT TO POINT OUT THESE LOVELY — WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THESE LITTLE SHELLS? THESE ARE THE ORIGINAL SEQUIN, BEETLE WINGS, ACTUALLY THAT ARE HARVESTED FROM SOUTHEAST ASIA. THEY HARVEST THEM OUT TO NATURAL WILDLIFE. AND THEY ARE FARMED FOR FOOD IS SO THEY USE THE WHOLE THING. Reporter: THE ENTIRE THING. I WANT TO POINT OUT TO YOU THAT THIS WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR IT. IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY, YOU CAN SEE THE SHIMMERY GREEN FLAX SO YOU WERE INSPIRED. THIS IS LADY MacBETH AND SHE PLAYED LADY MacBETH IN 1888. THIS IS A FAMOUS PAINTING WITH A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT MIGHT RECOGNIZE THIS. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DRAWN TO THIS. WHEN WE DECIDED TO DO THIS PLAY, I WAS LIKE — Reporter: SPEAKING OF LADY MacBETH, LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THIS COSTUME. THIS IS SO STUNNING. THIS BRIGHT GREEN ONE. YOU RECOGNIZE THIS. LADY MacBETH IS SO FIERCE AND FANTASTIC. SHE IS ONE OF THE CHARACTERS THAT REALLY STEALS THE SHOW IN ADDITION TO THE FABULOUS WITCHES. WE HAVE A LOVELY TREAT FOR YOU BECAUSE IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT WE ARE GOING TO GO DOWN INTO THE THEATER AND THERE IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE MAGIC THAT IS GOING TO BE TAKING PLACE. IS THAT CORRECT? THAT WOULD BE CORRECT. YES. Reporter: RUBY REPRESENTS THE MOTHER OF THE GROUP. SHE IS WITH CHILD. WE HAVE GOT THE MOTHER AND WE HAVE THE CROWN AND WE HAVE THE MAIDEN. MRS. FIRE — WHAT DO YOU REPRESENT? I AM THE QUEEN OF THE WEEK — I AM THE QUEEN OF THE WITCHES. I AM IN CONTROL OF WHAT THEY DO OR I TRIED TO DO UNTIL THEY DISOBEY ME. , A LITTLE BIT CLOSER. Reporter: EXPLAIN WHAT THE METHOD OF THE WITCHES — WHAT IS THE PLAN? WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH ON STAGE? WE ARE TRYING TO UPEND THE ORDER OF THINGS AS THEY STAND. Reporter: JUST APPEND THE ORDER. NO BIG DEAL. RIGHT NOW WE ARE BELOW EVERYTHING. WE WANT TO MAKE EVERYTHING EQUAL. Reporter: IT TURNS OUT THAT THERE IS A GUY IN THE SHOW, THE SCOTTISH PLAY, THAT IS THE PERFECT PINE. HE IS BECAUSE HE IS EGOCENTRIC, POWER-HUNGRY AND HE WANTS AND WE SAY LET’S GET THAT GUY. Reporter: THEY DO A PRETTY DARN GOOD JOB. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE COSTUMES. STEP A LITTLE WAYS OUT. I WANT TO SHOW OFF THE WORKS. WHEN YOU WERE CREATING THESE, JESSICA, WHAT WAS THE THOUGHT AND THE VISION? THE ELEMENTS. WE HAVE EARTH, AIR, FIRE, AND WATER. THEY ARE REPRESENTED IN SMALL DETAILS. THEY SHOW UP CLOSE. THEY REALLY DO. Reporter: YOU CAN SEE THE DETAILS AND I AM EXCITED TO GO DOWNSTAIRS BUT WE WILL BE ON STAGE. THE THING THAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THIS IS THAT EVERY SHOW THEY PARTNER WITH LOCAL NONPROFIT, 916 INC. WHICH HELPS YOUNG PEOPLE — THE WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S OF THE FUTURE — IT REALLY SUPPORTS THEIR EFFORTS. THEY WILL RECEIVE A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THE SHOW SO THAT IS EXCITING AND EVERY SINGLE SHOW IS PAIRED WITH A DIFFERENT LOCAL NONPROFIT. THAT IS VERY COOL. YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE SHOW FOR LESS MONEY. THAT IS COMING UP TONIGHT. WE WILL — GIVE YOU THE DETAILS
