Alan Cummings has found a way to
ruin one of the most dramatic of all of William Shakespeare’s works: “Macbeth.” Setting this play in an insane asylum makes
no sense and I could not understand many of the lines. The beautiful wording
and much of the plot are obscured. One time in a bath tub is enough. The last
attempted suicide was gratuitous. I will
keep in my mind Antony Sher’s magnificent performance at the Long Wharf Theatre. At the Ethel Barrymore Theatre.
