Xena Streaming on Lightbox in New Zealand

Xena: Warrior Princess - Lightbox for New Zealand Xenites!



Like a modern-day treasure hunter we had to dig deep into the Lightbox catalogue to unearth this worldly treasure. But by Jove was it worth it. Because cast your eyes on what we found, Xena: Warrior Princess! New Zealand's late-90s gift to television screens worldwide. Amazing. While the full series run isn't yet available - uh, why exactly, Lightbox? - there's still plenty of Lucy Lawless' original ass-kicking heroine to churn though. We're talking the entirety of the first three seasons. Which means you could binge for almost three day straight before running out of Xena. Naturally, we don't advise doing so but we certainly won't blame you for trying. Streaming now.

ROC Productions presents MACBETH, with Renee O’Connor as ‘Lady Macbeth’ and husband, Jed Sura as ‘Macbeth’.

“I am thrilled to reprise the role of Lady M, after playing this role with Shakespeare By The Sea in 2002. I never could have imagined I would have the opportunity to play this intense part with my husband! It will be a thrilling ride for us, and I am grateful for the visionary guidance of professional director, Michael Ritchie, whom I met on Southern Shakespeare Company’s production of Romeo and Juliet last year.” Renee O’Connor
