A refreshingly traditional Macbeth.
18 August 2019 | by jdavisbruinSee all my reviews

This is a Macbeth that focuses on performances and relationships rather than provocative directing choices or modernization to the setting and costuming. If you want to see a fast paced, well-acted Macbeth that pays reverence and respect to Shakespeare's intent, this is it. It is perhaps as close to Renaissance staging as you will ever see.
