The fall harvest is ready, and this year, we’ve got a bumper crop of Shakespeare plays! If you’re in the mood for something spooky, you might enjoy the three productions of Macbeth our theater partners are staging this month, or perhaps the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s The Living Dead. October also features a special anniversary production from the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company and an opportunity to get to know one of Shakespeare’s contemporaries at the Baltimore Shakespeare Factory.
