I need to interrupt this series of posts on Macbeth to mention something intriguing that I just heard about. It fits the theme of "Shakespeare Performed in Transit" that began when Shakespeare was first performed on board The Dragon in 1607 (for which, q.v.).
In 2010, a company associated with the University of New Mexico put Shakespeare on the train that runs between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. I don't know much more than that, but it's an intriguing idea. I also don't know whether the plays were performed to a captive audience or to an audience that knew what it was getting when it booked its ticket.
Here's a brief clip of one performance. Note the woman who is sitting with her back to the main playing space. She's trying to read a magazine during the early lines—yet she clutches it to herself as the last few lines are delivered, completely captivated by Shakespeare.
Update: Shakespeare on the Rail will be taking place this year as well! See it every Saturday in June, July, and August.
