Expressionistic staging takes the audience into the mind of Shakespeare's Macbeth. More…
From his bloody rise to the throne through his paranoid reign and down into the all-consuming depths of his madness, this is a fast-paced and visceral production swarming with witches and demons, guilt and treachery, war, and murder upon murder that careens toward its climax. When lust for power takes over Macbeth, all hell literally breaks loose.
"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." Full Review
