Better Macbeth than You'll ever see!!!
21 March 2001 | by (La Mesa, California) – See all my reviews

It is definitely not the scholar's version. Good thing, because the text is virtually unplayable in the last century. The plot is delicious but for the text you definitely had to be there - 1606.

This takes the narrative and runs with it. No cries of foul unless you want to take on Kurasawa, Welles or Verdi. This just takes a straight narrative of the play; excises the boring parts and provides the motivation by parallel plot developments of the players within the play. Does Macbeth have a narcissistic personality disorder? Is Lady Macbeth unhinged by lust? Does Macduff have a clue? Could you get it on with a witch in a vermin infested apartment? All this and more will be answered here.

The end? Well, we all must have our little secrets, just say it is eminently Shakespearean.
