Excellent. Brush up on your Macbeth. If you have never read Macbeth or it's been a long time since you have, I would advise reading at least a summary. If I wouldn't have, I wouldn't have understood what was going on. The play was very enjoyable

Interesting and different presentation that held interest with its unique presentation using the background video and the witches.

A bit too odd for me. The screaming witches just drove me nuts and the adaptation was just the setting with nothing changed to the language (don't remember the dust bowl having Kings)
