For 32 years, April showers bring Austin free Shakespeare in the park for the month of May.
And so Austin Shakespeare continues the decades-long tradition of presenting a show in Zilker Park.
A new production of “Macbeth” has a modern military look — along with plenty of sword fights, ghosts and eerie aparitions and odd, creepy witches.
The show features two of Austin’s most regarded classical actors: Marc Pouhé reprises his acclaimed 2008 portrayal of Macbeth and Helen Merino stars as Lady Macbeth.
Shows are 8 p.m. Thursday-Sunday through May 29.
Picnics are welcome and bring a blanket to sit on. Dogs must be kept on a leash. Glass containers are not allowed and smoking is definitely not allowed in the park.
