One thing that's awesome about reading books is that you can imagine the characters and scenes any way you please—unless you've already seen the film adaptation and will forever picture Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter.
The College of Idaho Department of Theatre and Speech Arts wants to give you a fighting chance at picturing a stage production the way you'd like to see it. The department will present an installment of its inaugural play reading series tonight in the Langroise Studio Theatre. Actors will read the text of the play, sans scenery, costumes or lighting, so you can imagine the scenery what you wish, while getting acquainted with some pretty stellar plays.
Tonight's reading is of Kabuki Lady Macbeth, written by Karen Sunde and directed by C of I theater professor Michael Hartwell. It tells the story of the Shakespearian classic from the point of view of the heroine. You can catch it at 7:30 p.m., and admission is on a pay-what-you-wish basis, with proceeds funding theater department travel to the 2012 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival conference.
