ABOUT THE SHOW
Macbeth with Michelin stars. Maison Mac is a deliciously dark new musical set in the cut-throat world of fine dining. With a sharply contemporary script and a score that blends pop with musical theatre, Shakespeare’s classic becomes a cancel culture thriller about two twenty-somethings who sacrifice everything to get to the top. Will anyone make it out unscathed? Can anyone stand the heat of the kitchen?
Like the play it’s based on, this is a musical about the white-hot heat of ambition and the lust for power. Dramatic, fast-paced and joyously pop-y, it is also about gender, gender-queerness, and the ways people navigate their identities in the ferociously masculine world of professional kitchens. We want to give voice to LGBTQIA+ people from different generations in a story full of queer characters that is not directly about queerness.
An important context for this adaption is the rise of cancel culture. In Maison Mac, we have traded in daggers for DMs and denunciations. This transposition of Shakespeare’s classic offers us a chance to think about the moral complexities of this new culture, in a story where all characters are deeply flawed and there is no clear villain.
