See it if you enjoy this Shakespearean standard in an intimate theatre facilitating understanding Elizabethan dialog and resonance with contemporaries
Don't see it if you can't stay awake in overheated theatre for 2.5 hours dialogue, little action, no intermission;would benefit from prop Bentham wood moved
See it if you'd appreciate an up close, modern & wonderfully staged and realized production of the Scottish Play, with fine if uneven performances.
Don't see it if you need period costumes, sets & prosceniums, don't like actors too close to you or like your Shakespeare with needless British accents.
"As an actor, Walker is perfectly suited to this role...Cronican gives us a quieter, more naturalistic Lady Macbeth…The rest of the cast, a mix of Equity and non-Equity actors, does not always mesh in tone, and sometimes the speed of the line readings results in a lack of clarity, but overall this is a strikingly contemporary take on 'the Scottish play' that captures the mood of the country right now and proves once again that Shakespeare's voice is one to be reckoned with for all times."
"Director Brandon Walker has a clear vision and insightful understanding of this play. His bare-bones, modern-dress approach intensifies the choices made by the main characters and magnifies the effects their actions have on their senses of self...Together Walker and Cronican are riveting...The ensemble is equally commanding...It is a seamless and fast-paced production. Be sure to see it!"
