Great acting, Refreshing, Intense, Clever, Entertaining

Don't see it if you want the traditional play or if you have difficulty with a wordy play that lasts nearly two hours without an intermission.

See it if into a gender-bending, era-blurring, casual-at-times interpretation of the Scottish play

Don't see it if you like your Shakespeare as God intended, thank you very much! Read more
