Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

Good interpretation. The scapegoat sacrifice worked as an allegory, and the extra-textual song/words seemed seamless. Three witches danced and acted well. The red ribbons-for-blood are a great revival and should be used more often. Macduff's grief hurt his voice and might've been a late-production letting-loose. Two scenes interpreted this play well: The family Macduff scene when the kinsman left - I didn't realize why until I saw this play performed. Also, the post-Banquo murder scene when two men are talking - the first part being as loyal-to-Macbeth, the second part quieter, speaking their true minds (after checking out for eavesdroppers) -these scenes opened the play up better for me and I thought were well done.
