Voodoo Macbeth

Voodoo Macbeth is the nickname for the Federal Theatre Project’s 1936 New York production of Macbeth, directed by the 20-year-old Orson Welles with an entirely African-American cast and set in a fictional Caribbean island. The nickname Voodoo Macbeth comes from the Haitian vodou that replaced the Scottish witchcraft in the original play.
The extremely successful production not only made the reputation of its young director, but its creative interpretation of Shakespeare promoted African-American theatre and also provided much needed jobs during the Great Depression.
