Vassar offers free performances

Actors From the London Stage is one of the oldest touring Shakespeare theater companies in the world, and they will be performing Macbeth at Vassar College Feb. 26–28.

The company has an innovative approach: Five actors perform all the parts in the play, each handling multiple roles. The group tours approximately 16 to 20 colleges and universities each year with the goal of making Shakespeare exciting and accessible to new audiences.
