Here's a nice flashback: The Folger Shakespeare Theatre's version of "Macbeth" (Ben's second show way back in 2008) is being shown at the Carter Baron Amphitheatre in D.C. this weekend. Here is the trailer teasing the filmed version of the stage show, which is available on DVD.
The Scottish play, directed by Aaron Posner and Teller, is one of the experiences Jill and I credit for Ben's desire to become a performer. Only 10 years old, surrounded by seasoned actors who had much more experience, he soaked up everything like a sponge. The production was outstanding, spooky, and unforgettable — for more reasons than one.
