According to The Charlotte Observer of 06.08.99, some performers in
Orlando revealed a new wrinkle in performing Macbeth when, according to
the paper, "The owner of an adult nightclub and three dancers who
challenged an anti-nudity ordinance by performing Macbeth in the buff
were charged Monday with violating the law." I really doubt if this
exposes a new way to perform this work, since I'm relatively sure some
enterprising soul has thought of this before-maybe not for Stratford in
Ontario or Warwickshire, but probably at some lesser known venue. It
would certainly cut expenses for costumes to the bare bones.
