I saw the first preview, a little rough around the edges but inspired! Great production values! For ex, the witches' makeup and sound amplification was fabulous (maybe a tad too loud), Banquo ( and the ghostly post-mortem makeup) was...continued

First half was pretty good. Second half was a bit over the top in terms of shouting and screaming and swordplay, but underwhelming in emotional delivery of key lines (e.g., after Lady Macbeth dies).

I had a wonderful time. The actors were amazing and brought Shakespeare to life. Well done, especially the witches.

MacBeth was amazing. The cast was amazing. It was a fun space to watch it in because you felt like you were part of the action. From the scary witches to the transformation of MacBeth and Lady MacBeth, the action never stopped. So well done!! ...continued

Overall good acting , some great . Lady MacBeth gave a strong performance throughout while MacBeth didn't sell it until his decline which he played to the hilt. The Weird Sisters were wonderfully weird. The exchange between MacDuff and Malcom in...continued

I took 6 individuals of family and extended family. We are essentially
theater prone. I've done summer stock and taught theater for twenty years. I picked the right play for having a couple of the family to cut their Shakespeare eye-teeth...continued

Extreemly well done - if you are not familiar with the storyline, it is helpful to read about the story first - I did and it made for a wonderful play for me

Great performance. While it's never explicitly stated, the company seemed to have shifted the setting to WWI. The presence of firearms definitely indicated a more modern setting but it wasn't completely clear. No dialog was changed, though, and...continued

It was excellent. Went with someone who knows MacBeth well and only criticism was speaking too quickly. Really enjoyed the performance

It's amazing that little Encinitas can have live theatre of this quality. While I still hold up Intrepid Shakespeare Company's Hamlet as the one to beat, this show was as intense as you would expect Macbeth to be. The pacing was excellent, the...continued

Swift, direct, comprehensible - and bloody! The staging along a corridor between two seat sections is nicely worked out and allows the audience to be close to the action (sit in the first two rows and really get drawn in!). Closes this weekend...continued
