The Scottish play gets a modern twist from the Actors From The London Stage, one of the oldest touring Shakespeare companies in the world, which draws its members from the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. Five actors cover four to six roles each in their treatment of "Macbeth," transforming scene to scene using minimal props and no set. By diminishing the number of distractions, the audience has the chance to focus solely on Shakespeare's language—a facet of his productions occasionally overshadowed by elaborate costumes and over-the-top stage sets. There will be three performances from February 26-28 at the Martel Theater at Vassar College. The performances are free, though reservations are required. (845) 437-5599; boxoffice@vassar.edu.
