A violent cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Macbeth -- with his manipulative wife by his side -- achieves the power he believes he deserves, but the price is tragically high. Shakespeare's masterpiece provides a glimpse into the human heart, with the "black and deep desires" that are often found in even the best of men and women. Organic Theater Company's fresh take on this ageless tale sees this power couple's journey in its grotesque complexity. Learn More

Maybe I'm suffering from overexpectation, but I was pretty unimpressed. We saw Stoppard's "The Real Thing" some time back and were amazed at how GOOD it was. I was hoping for the same. Press clippings on this show have all been good - but I think I have that one figured out. The main characters are reporters/correspondents so the reviewers (who are part of the press) really liked the show.
Acting was ok. Special note on the younger reporter - this actor was very good - probably the highlight. Everybody else seemed like they were walking through their lines.
Sorry - I'm a big Remy Bumppo fan, but this one didn't do it for me.
