Quotes & Highlights
“What a tour-de-force performance it is … really hits the damned spot.” —Entertainment Weekly
“What Cumming is doing at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre is delivering a tour-de-force that redefines the term.” -Associated Press

He’s tireless and brave in enacting a difficult story." —Vulture
“All will appreciate the stirring turn by Cumming packing theatrical thunder and lightning. Fitting for the asylum setting of this “Macbeth,” Cumming is fully committed.” —New York Daily News
“It’s an audacious interpretation, not simply in the enormity of the task (Cumming is center of attention for the best part of two hours), but in the way it internalizes the wide-ranging political drama of the original and turns it into a distressing vision of mental disorder.” —Variety
