Macbeth plays in the New Theater, which is where the Oregon Shakespeare
Festival presents experimental works: new plays and new twists on old
plays. The theater is small, and casts tend to be small, so much
doubling occurs when presenting Shakespeare's works in this space.
The festival presents more traditional fare in their other theaters: the
indoor Angus Bowmer and the outdoor Elizabethan.
