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.

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
“it produced, in me at least, the thump of dread you want in Macbeth and seldom get … Every element of the design - set, sound, costume, video, lighting — is ideally tailored to the concept … [Cumming’s] voice for verse, with those big Scots vowels, is outstanding. 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
