Jon Hoche
Redhouse Arts Center is presenting Macbeth starring Jon Hoche, the voice and puppeteer behind King Kong on Broadway, with Redhouse Associate Director of Artistic Programming Temar Underwood at the helm, Apr. 1-15, 2022. Redhouse Arts Center is located at 400 S. Salina St, Syracuse, NY 13202. This well-known play follows a brave Scottish general, who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Redhouse’s modern reimagining will explore the parallels between Shakepeare’s story and the political and social turmoil we’ve experienced over the past couple of years. Macbeth has been performed worldwide for centuries with nearly 50 productions on Broadway since 1849 including 4 productions since 2000 starring Patrick Stewart, Alan Cumming, Ethan Hawke, and Kelsey Grammer as the titular character. 2021-2022 Season subscriptions will go on sale Monday, May 10, 2021 with single tickets going on sale August 2, 2021.
