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