For those who don’t know, an update. For those who do know, a reminder. PBS will air Sir Patrick Stewart’s Macbeth on October 6 at 9 p.m. I saw this production on stage at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and it was excellent. (Not surprising, given it had the Bald Man in the title role.) But I was in literally the last row, so getting a close-up image, even if it’s only on TV as opposed to the theater, will be a new experience.

(On a related note, Susan and I talked about the differences between live theater and film in our last podcast. Check it out if you haven’t heard it.)

Anyway, I’ll be sure to report back after watching it, and I’d love to hear from all of you as well. In the meantime, there are some great extras on the PBS website to check out.
