Captain Macbeth

A really charming interview in the NYT with Patrick Stewart, whose Macbeth is coming to Brooklyn. It covers the odd transitions of his career from British classical actor to TV sci-fi star and now back, with just a tiny hint of melancholy that he'll never act the big young Shakespeare roles. For matter, his age is a notable focus of this production, with an aging man grasping at his last chance at promotion and a wife half his age. Wish I could see it.
