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.

"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."
