In Repertory with Macbeth. *(What’s this?)
What is Repertory Theatre?
Repertory theatre is when one cast performs two different shows in a rotating schedule. For example, Macbeth will be playing on September 15 & 19, while La Dispute will be playing on September 17 & 18. The same cast will be performing in both shows.
From the era of Dangerous Liaisons comes this seductive, wicked and provocative comedy. A Prince and his mistress dispute the question of all questions: “Who was unfaithful first? Man or Woman?” The only way to find the answer is to conduct an illicit experiment — about the origins of love itself.
