The Capitol Theatre, as a part of their 'Best' Series, presents two extraordinary shows by New York's legendary Aguila Theatre.

Written in 1924, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald paints a vivid picture of how the quest for the American dream in the absence of true equality can lead to devastating effects. As timely and relevant a story as the year, it was written, this production is sure to be the must-see show of the season.

William Shakespeare's Macbeth at The Capitol Theatre in Yakima

Aquila’s second production is one of Shakespeare’s most influential contributions to world literature. Macbeth is a powerful commentary on unchecked ambition and power. A thrilling tale of ruthless ambition, deadly deceptions, intense paranoia, and ultimately, insanity, this is a world where “fair is foul and foul is fair.”

The classics made relevant with superb acting and clever staging. – The New Yorker
