Inspired by George W. Bush's first presidential term circa 2002, and an examination of our current culture, this fresh, modern take on Macbeth makes for a production that Shakespeare rookies and veterans alike can enjoy. In this classic, a violent cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Ross, a nobleman in the king's court, has been close to Macbeth but begins to question his true nature. Meanwhile, Macbeth -- with his ambitious 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" found in even the best men and women and asks the question: "What would you be willing to do to achieve your dreams?"

I had already rated and reviewed this event. I think the fact that this is my second time going to see it speaks volumes. The show continues to be consistently excellent. Enjoyed it just as much the second time around as I did the first.

A twisted and kooky comedy of the best kind: one with heart. Wonder of the World is a meditation on relationships in all their many forms, Lindsay-Abaire takes one woman’s life crisis, throws her and a cast of one-of-kind characters into a barrel and has them ride on the waterfall’s edge of insanity and self discovery.
