Final Weekend for Macbeth!

Thursday through Sunday, October 10-13, are the last performances of our 2019 Macbeth, directed by Bob Hall and Emily Ernst. The venue is the Swan Theatre in the Stables at Wyuka, 3600 "O" Street in Lincoln -- and show time is 7:30 p.m.

One longtime friend of the company has already experienced the show twice. Here's what she had to say:

"We saw Flatwater Shakespeare's Macbeth again tonight, and again it was remarkable. Watching Matt and Summer Lukasiewicz play the title couple reminds me once again how many facets there are to madness. Matt's descent into madness is kinetic, blustering, and crushing, while Summer's begins bold and ruthless and degenerates into whimpering, heart-wrenching regret. The entire cast and crew are to be congratulated for bringing one of Shakespeare's best to searing, bloody life."

Another friend reacted just as enthusiastically:

"THAT WAS AWESOME! I assumed the show was going to be good because of the folks involved, and it has been getting good reports, but it exceeded expectations.

"AND, the Flatwater Shakespeare Company says we never 'sell out' at Wyuka because we can always jam more chairs in, but several times we said 'we cannot go past this number' and folks kept showing up!! That makes me so excited for the future of the company and the upcoming 2020 season.

"AND AND not only was it good theater, but it was a really delightfully autumnal experience. Crisp October air. Wrapped in shawls and scarves. In a cemetery. Watching a show with a lot of murder. Much more my speed than a haunted house, honestly.

"AND AND AND, it was awesome to see Summer Lukasiewicz act! I respect her deeply for the work she does as Flatwater Shakespeare's Executive Director, but I haven't had a chance to see her on stage before."
