Creating the Role of Macbeth: John Rensenhouse

Jun 8, 2011

When the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival announced in April that its summer production of Macbeth was in jeopardy, area fans came through, donating $100,000 in a week to ensure that Macbeth would indeed reign. That was a relief to actor John Rensenhouse, who had been working on playing the title role for several months.

Kansas City, Mo. – KCUR's Steve Walker sat down with the actor to chat about what it takes to become the man who would be king.
