Absorbing, Intense, Relevant

See it if you enjoy a Shakespeare standard. I've never seen Macbeth, but I'm glad I saw this production.

Don't see it if You want true-to-the-original staging. One thing I'm enjoying about different Shakespeare productions is that each production is different.

Ambitious, Intelligent, Overwrought

See it if You're up for a quick-paced, well acted, earnest & committed if ultimately flat Macbeth whose Method approach sadly morphs into melodrama.

Don't see it if You're expecting an inspired or revelatory production, or the clearest language or poetry. Voices & deliveries generally fine, but. Read more

Not my favorite macbeth

See it if you know Macbeth well so can pick out the subtle nuances of the better performances within this soup or know it not and just want exposure.

Don't see it if You are put off by various abilities to wrap one's tongue around Shakespeare. If you want any subtly or arc for Lady Macbeth. She GOES mad. Read more

Intelligent, Ambitious, Great writing, Disappointing

See it if You like Shakespeare; you enjoy energetic performance; you want to see a masterpiece in a tiny theater

Don't see it if You want a single standard of performance - the caliber of acting (& type of direction) differed significantly; you want traditional staging

Theater Pizzazz
February 1st, 2017

"A bit fuzzy-headed and not wildly original...There has to be a reason an audience will sit and watch a play that is so overdone and Gonzalez and Billingsley never rise above the level of a pretty couple bickering. On the other hand, the Three Witches are marvelously intense creatures...The rest of the cast spoke their lines unevenly...Energy and dedication aren’t enough. 'Macbeth' demands over-the-top emotions and a sense of inevitability which this 'Macbeth' never quite achieved."
