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

We're big fans of the movie with Hepburn, Grant, and Stewart. The script of the play closely followed the script of the movie with a few minor alterations in the plot. I think this production was very good, but it lacked the timing of the movie. If I weren't familiar with the movie, I'd probably give the play four stars. The cast did a good job.
Quotes & Highlights
“Altogether delicious… pure theatrical champagne.” —Chicago Sun-Times
One day before her marriage to a successful businessman, haughty socialite Tracy Lord is sure of herself and her future. However, with the surprise arrival of ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven and the tempting presence of tabloid reporter Mike Connor, Tracy’s perfect vision of herself is shaken to the core. It will take a bottle of champagne and a compromising situation to crack her forbidding exterior and reveal an understanding heart. This classic comedy of manners by Philip Barry finds that sometimes getting what you want means learning to let go.
