Great acting, Ambitious, Clever, Edgy, Intelligent

See it if You love language & brilliant actors plying their craft in a stripped-down Shakespeare that concisely cuts to its essence, truth & heart.

Don't see it if You like your Shakespeare straight – unabridged & full of artifice, & don't care if you miss the disarming, exhilarating Lisa Wolpe.

Disappointing

See it if You're interested in how they cut the script for three actors and a one hour run time. You like Mad Maxesque costumes.

Don't see it if You hate one-note performances.

“Fewer characters, blended scenes, and one single simple set throughout brought in a resounding applause a little over an hour later. ‘Macbeth3’ is as dark as Shakespeare’s original vision, if not darker and maybe a little more satanic. Lisa Wolpe’s execution of this gender-bent tragic tale is clever and, in comparison to other Shakespeare renditions, revolutionary.”
