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.

Great acting, Great writing, Great staging, Intense, Absorbing

See it if you love seeing non-traditional interpretations of Shakespeare and longer plays being stripped down to their essence.

Don't see it if you've never read or seen Macbeth before (this version might be too confusing), or if you're uncomfortable with actors cross-dressing.

The Drunken Odyssey
August 2nd, 2016

“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.”
