The actors were excellent, especially Karin Aldrich as Lady Macbeth and Evan Buliung as MacDuff. Ben Carlson needs some time to warm up as Macbeth and he'll do so over the run. All in all though, the director seemed too focused on the look of the play (fog, gun shots, blood, and oy ve the video) and not the emotional throughline or just the text. She spent too much time in trying to make this like a movie rather than focus on telling the story. It's Shakespeare - trust him! Jeez. Actors made up for that though. Didn't blow me away, but still worth seeing.
After his award-winning 2006 CST debut as Hamlet, acclaimed Canadian classical actor Ben Carlson returns to CST's stage as Macbeth, joined by celebrated Chicago actress Karen Aldridge as Lady Macbeth. This powerful pair leads a cast of 30 in Artistic Director Barbara Gaines' long-awaited first production of Macbeth, Shakespeare's richly poetic drama of a marriage besieged by a relentless desire for power.
