Phillip Anglim is a dull Macbeth that barely shows emotion,Only with a strong lead can Macbeth succeed and Anglim is quite the wrong choice. Maureen Anderman fares better as Lady Macbeth but Anglim constantly hinders her portrayal. Her sleepwalking scene is quite well done as are the portrayals of John Vickery as Malcom and Kelsey Grammar as Ross. these few elements are not enough ,however to save this stagnant production.
"MACBETH for AMERICANS" is a good by-line for this production...and that is praise. Featuring an entirely USA casting (look for a lean and hungry--and bearded--Kelsey Granmer as Ross) and a elaborate yet simple stage plan, MACBETH becomes accessible to those easily intimidated by the "British style" that dominates Bard productions. Philip Anglim's finest hour.
