Ambitious, Great acting, Edgy, Masterful

See it if The Alan Cumming one-man Macbeth was a tour de force. Stirring and deeply troubling.

Don't see it if You're not familiar with the text - it's a bold interpretation and requires you to keep up.

Slow, Indulgent, Great acting, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if You want to see Daniel Craig or Ruth Negga on stage.

Don't see it if You want a set or props. Also if you want the witch/witches to be more than random people casually saying lines.

The Court Square Blog

"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."
