Philadelphia Theatre Company presents Macbeth In Stride by Whitney White, which will run from Nov. 2-19, at its location, 480 S. Broad St.

The show is described as a dazzling theatrical event created and performed by Obie Award-winning artist Whitney White. Macbeth In Stride examines what it means to be an ambitious black woman through the lens of one of Shakespeare’s most iconic characters. This 90-minute rock musical uses pop, gospel and R&B to trace the fatalistic arc of Lady Macbeth while lifting contemporary black female power, femininity and desire. Join the Philadelphia Theatre Company in admiring the work directed by PTC’s artistic directors, Taibi Magar and Tyler Dobrowsky.
