Patrick Stewart’s Macbeth is fantastic!

I had the privilege of seeing Patrick Stewart’s Macbeth last night at the Lyceum Theater before it closes on May 24. I loved the re-interpretation of the setting with Macbeth playing a Stalin-like figure with a backdrop and effects worthy of George Orwell’s 1984! Patrick Stewart is magnificent in the role and clearly shows how is undoing is really of his own making.

My only quibble was that the first half was a bit slow, but it really picked up after the intermission and ended with a great flourish!
