Banal, Disappointing, Excruciating, Insipid, Slow

See it if You know someone in the show and want to support them. Don't see it if you love Macbeth, don't see it if you're new to Shakespeare. A mess.

Don't see it if No nuance to the characters or words. Boring staging and production. Cringe-worthy delivery. The best actors weren't in the top roles.

Needs rehearsal. amateurish

See it if A few sparks of emotion showed through plodding Shakespeare. Needs tighter direction.

Don't see it if Very basic production. No set. Some costumes and swords.

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."
