Post Five Theatre inaugurates its new black-box space with a lusty version of Shakespeare’s bloodiest play, Macbeth. Ty Boice, Post Five’s artistic director, plays the murderous thane with a brooding masculinity and a wardrobe recalling Marlon Brando in Streetcar Named Desire. Far from “unsexed,” his Lady Macbeth (Cassandra Schwanke) is a full-blown Shakespearean seductress in a black silk robe, and the action verges on voyeurism when the two meet. Fake blood galore, knife fights and combat boots further update the Scottish monarchy, but the cuts to Shakespeare’s text are unobtrusive and keep the spirit loyal. The cast, especially Nathan Dunkin as Banquo, captures Shakespeare’s dark world with intensity rather than melodrama. Actors weave through the audience to make their entrances into the small space, which lends the production a refreshing intimacy. (But watch your toes and elbows.)
