Lady M. is a retelling of Shakespeare's Macbeth with the emphasis on Lady Macbeth. Everything in this play is from Shakespeare's text but has been reordered/reworked to focus on Lady Macbeth.
This adaptation neither served the story of Macbeth nor was it strong enough to be a totally new story of Lady Macbeth. I found the reordering of the text a bit confusing at times. Also, I didn't think the text was handled appropriately by the fairly young cast (youngest Lady Macbeth I've ever seen). I missed the rhythm of folio most notably absent from "Double double toil and trouble".
There were things that I LOVED about this production. The physicality of all of the actors was great. The lighting was beautiful and made some amazing pictures. I really enjoyed how basic the costumes were, and the use of mime for most of the props was a really interesting choice.
If Shakespeare's text is less important to you than other aspects of a production, you'll probably really, really enjoy Lady M. For me, the language lacked passion.
