"The more interesting take is to explore Macbeth as a tragic figure, a lesser man who cannot handle the gravity of the brutal actions he must perform to ascend to the throne. It makes for a far more interesting and compelling study of the human psyche....There’s never a shortage of action. It remains visually complex and well-choreographed throughout. Certainly, the production invites a visceral reaction, which is likely how Shakespeare originally intended it."
