See it if I liked the presentation of it on a sparse Labor Day weekend. Acting was great. Loved the scenery and plot.

Don't see it if If you don’t like Shakespeare in the park but who doesn’t?

"The language of 'Macbeth' sounded neither labored nor chewed to bits...Delightful evening...Posing against tall buildings, running up and down the stairs leading to the back of the NYPL, they are never overtaken by their own majestic energy...Clancy seems to elapse time brilliantly in other moments of this production, leaving a series of remarkable images, before allowing audience members to drift back into the trees and towards the skyscrapers of New York City."
