Pittsburgh Classic Players: A Classic in the Making

Pittsburgh Classic Players was a name the founders chose carefully with great intention. Pittsburgh is not just the name of their theatre company’s home city. The company proudly pulls from Pittsburgh’s deep pool of theatrical talent while also fostering the growth of local Pittsburgh-based actors. Classic reflects their Shakespearean roots. They want to shine a light on classics (both established and in the making) as evidenced by this season’s line-up, which includes both Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and 2000 newcomer Proof. Classic also reflects their focus on storytelling and following the low-tech substance over spectacle theatrical approach of Shakespeare’s day. Players is the third component of their name, which reflects the company’s focus on actors. While directors certainly help sculpt the show, PCP is first and foremost about actors.

Pittsburgh Classic Players’ Macbeth, at The Maker Theater, is a production stripped to its basics on a minimalist set. That makes the thrust stage a podium for some of Sheakespeare’s most immortal lines. And that’s just what director Johnny Adkins does best here, simply allowing the audience access to a solid delivery of some truly great pieces of text.
