Macbeth is a good part for anyone. Kate says it is the best part she has ever played, or ever expects to play. Certainly Shakespeare gets tricked out in all sorts of weird ways in the search for novelty, but the only weird thing about this production is the three sisters. After about fifteen minutes, the large and enthusiastic audiences seem to forget entirely that these are not men up there on stage playing warriors. The cast becomes no more and no less than the characters, and even the fight scenes, with lethal-looking broadswords, play to Shakespeare and not to novelty.
And my sister is wonderful. Okay, yes, I'm biased -- but all the reviews of the play have said the same thing. Here she is:Yea and verily, "Something wicked this way comes."
