We can hardly believe it, but here it is: our final episode in
our Macbeth series (for now)! Before moving on to our
next play, we wanted to cover how Macbeth has
been adapted for stage and screen and how the myth of the hero
turned tyrant continues to shape our world narratives.
Shakespeare Anyone? is created
and produced by Kourtney Smith and Elyse Sharp.
Note: When this episode was recorded, Kourtney Smith was using
the stage name "Korey Leigh Smith".
Music is "Neverending Minute" by
Sounds Like Sander.
