Shakespeare at Large

The Weird Sisters come to The Museum of Science!

J.K. Rowling has called Macbeth her absolute favorite Shakespeare play. In the Harry Potter books, she even gives the name of Macbeth's three witches (the "Weird Sisters") to a rock band.

A highlight of the new Harry Potter exhibition at Boston's Museum of Science is the room devoted to the original costumes and props from the Yule Ball in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire. It's at the Yule Ball that we finally meet "The Weird Sisters," the hottest band in the wizarding world.

If you'd like to rock out to The Weird Sisters' "Do the Hippogriff" at the Yule Ball, please feel free to do so:
