SCREENING WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 28 at the AMC ROLLING HILLS (7:00 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.)

7:00 PM VOODOO MACBETH
7:15 PM VOODOO MACBETH

3 weeks before it opens in NY and L.A.!

Join us for a Q&A with Sabina Vajrača (director), Jewell Wilson Bridges (actor, playing Orson Welles), Inger Tudor (actor, playing Rose McClendon), and Arnie Holland (CEO of Lightyear Entertainment)

Based on the true story of 20-year old Orson Welles, acclaimed Broadway actress Rose McClendon, and their revolutionary production.

Well before Citizen Kane and War of the Worlds, director and acclaimed Broadway actress Rose McClendon, with the help of a young John Houseman, convinces 20-year old Orson Welles to direct Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” for the Harlem community with an all-Black cast.  It came to be known as “Voodoo Macbeth.”  However, it quickly becomes clear that the road to opening night will not be a smooth one.
