Out of the cauldron on Nectar Street will soon bubble a brand new take on one of William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies.
“I like Shakespeare better than anything else,” said Grady Hughes, who will play the title role in the Los Alamos Little Theatre’s upcoming production of “Macbeth,” set to open Halloween night.
“This play,” Hughes added, “is dark poetry.”
Audiences will remember Hughes from his recent performance as Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” as well as earlier roles in Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor” and “Twelfth Night.”
Hughes commended the language and intensity of emotion in which Shakespeare immersed his plays. “Macbeth” stands out for being one of the bard’s most deeply psychological works, he said.
“The transformation Macbeth undergoes, and the transformation he and Lady Macbeth undergo, are particularly excellent aspects of this play – in contrast to ‘Richard III,’ which is also about a villain, but one who’s in no way conflicted, and in no way transformed,” Hughes said.
