"Macbeth" @ PCS
When I first read, "Macbeth" like you've never seen it before" I expected it to be a bit of marketing hyperbole. This meant I was completely unprepared for its unique aspects. Namely, the all-female cast, which plays multiple roles. It's os an undeniably interesting set-up, and the actresses are exceptional. It must be noted, however, that this also makes the action difficult to follow, especially since the play is short enough not to require an intermission. To compensate, I'd highly recommend either reading the play, or watching one of its many film adaptations prior to going. This will help immensely, and it won't ruin the current performance by any means. The brief vocal musical interludes are beautiful enough on their own to merit buying a ticket. If you go in cold, you may be a little lost.
