Capitalizing on the well-known theatre superstitions surrounding Shakespeare's "Scottish Play" comes Paradise Productions' Cursing Macbeth: Tales and Superstitions at New York's Harold Clurman Theatre, through April 4.

This adaptation of Macbeth, by Craig George, investigates true-life stories of abduction, possesion and the supernatural while weaving in throughout the performance, Shakespeare' s text. George's witches are no longer the hags of Shakespeare's imagination but, extraterrestrial beings.

New York has seen more than one production of Macbeth this season, including the still-running Public Theatre production starring Alec Baldwin and Angela Bassett; a recent production at Downtown's NADA; and Umabatha (the "Zulu Macbeth") at Lincoln Center's Summer Festival.

Cursing Macbeth: Tales of Superstition runs through April 4 at the Harold Clurman Theatre. For tickets and more information, call (212) 279-4200.
