JUST AN AMAZING SHOW!! ALAN CUMMINGS WAS EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS ADVERTISED. WE HAD GOOD SEATS IN REAR MEZZ; BUT, WE FELT THAT THIS SHOW NEEDED TO BE SEEN FROM THE 1ST FEW ROWS OF THE MEZZ OR DECENT ORCHESTRA SEATS.

This is the first time I have seen Macbeth performed. I was fully engaged through the whole performance. It was difficult to seperate one character from another at times. Those more familiar with Macbeth would not have that problem. Alan Cummings...continued

Alan Cumming is a gift to the broadway stage- his facility for text and storytelling make this a remarkably moving and engaging experience

Alan Cumming is amazing. He is completely engaging the entire show. Once you get acquainted with all the characters he plays, it is not difficult to follow at all. One should definitely read the "cheat sheet" of characters before the show starts...continued

We went last night, only knowing that it was Alan Cumming's and Macbeth. It was only when we sat in our seats, looked through the Playbill, and saw only three actors that we realized that it was not a traditional performance. It amounts to a one...continued

It was a theatrical experience, and Alan Cumming was amazing, and I feel privileged to have seen it. I can't say it was a "fun" experience, but it was emotional, intense, and Shakespeare needs to have the language spoken.

Fabulous - totally worth it. No intermission and a running time of 90+ minutes, so make sure to hit the restroom before the show starts.

We were so very excited to this show. Alan Cumming is a great actor however it was not what we were expecting. This is basically a one-man retelling of Macbeth with Cumming doing every role in the play. Perhaps it was worth it just to see him in...continued

Great show. Very talented actor. Brush up on your reading before seeing this play or it will take you 20 minutes or so to fully grasp when he plays the various characters. He really gives it his all!

Weren't sure how even the gifted Alan Cummings could pull off the whole cast of MacBeth in this one man show. The result was absolutely incredible, due not only to his incredible prowess as an actor, but to sublime staging, sound effects and...continued
