Last of three parts
Ever wondered what goes on backstage at the Guthrie Theater before the play starts? In today’s third video installment of An Actor’s Life, local actor Bob Davis takes us on a rare tour of the theater building just before a performance of “Macbeth.” The camera allows us to visit places that most of us never see.
Then Davis takes us to his dressing room as he prepares himself while the “Bloody Sergeant” puts on makeup, Macduff studies his lines and the wisecracking “Flyboys” strap on battle gear and prepare to descend to the stage on ropes for the play’s opening fight scene.
With a dark suit, a little makeup, some new glasses and a severe part of his hair, Davis transforms into the Thane of Rosse.
