WHITEWATER — The Young Auditorium is welcoming The American Shakespeare Center for two theatrical performances this month — “The Taming of the Shrew,” at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, and “Macbeth,” at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 14.

“The American Shakespeare Center incorporates a unique performance style to each production, blending Shakespeare’s stage craft with modern sensibility,” according to a news release. “The company uses Shakespeare’s staging conditions, including universal lighting, minimal sets, doubling and music to explore its repertory of plays, both Shakespearean and non-Shakespearean.”

The lights will be left on for the productions at Young Auditorium, allowing for a type of audience contact that isn’t often seen in modern theater.

“The Taming of the Shrew” blends romantic comedy with outlandish farce in a love story of psychological liberation and the mysteries of being married. More than a “battle of the sexes”, the play looks at the necessity of “play” in our lives.

Shakespeare's shortest tragedy, “Macbeth,” is also his most unrelenting examination of the dark side of humanity.

“Driven to bloody deeds by their lust for power and supernatural predictions, Macbeth and his Lady fight to hold on to their ill-gotten throne, their sanity and each other by any means necessary,” the release says.

For more information or to purchase tickets, go online to youngauditorium.com, go to the Greenhill Center of the Arts box office (located in the Greenhill Center atrium on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus) or call 262-472-2222.
