I went with my wife to see this. We've been to this theater before and have enjoyed our experience here in the past. Its a nice cozy neighborhood near the Wedge and Rudolph's. I only wish they had more of a parking lot.
The play was extremely well done. I'm amazed at the self control of the three Wyrd Sisters who stood still as the audience gathered for the show. Throughout the whole play they gave this creepy mystical vibe. Everytime they showed you just feel like something was going to happen. They didn't have a whole lot of lines nor did they do much beyond act like statues. When they did talk or move you just felt creeped out.
The love of McBeth and his wife was how the play was introduced, we see them get so friendly with one another. So much so that one of the actors even tripped was going backwards. I don't know if it was delibriate or not, but if it wasn't they recovered nicely and used it to continue to portray their emotions for one another. All while another actor sings.
The dialogue was hard to follow for my poor modern ears, but if you love Shakespearian works I'm sure you won't have any trouble following along. My wife probably didn't have any problems. I spent more of my time being impressed with the use of lights and props.
It was very rowdy and at times lewd-eque reminding me of Klingons or bikers. Which in my mind was probably a realistic portrayal of the times. Though they took liberties at the sex of some of the characters, example the sons of the king became daughters. It still made the story work though.
I enjoyed the use of bright red ribbons for blood. It was well done. The whole thing was well done and I couldn't ask for a more relaxing time in the theater.
