Phillip Psutka – writer, director, co-choreographer, fight director, violinist, and co-producer – brings a breath of fresh air to Macbeth, one of Shakespeare’s dark plays. He not captures the essence of poetry and cadence found in Shakespeare, but cleverly uses red aerial silks throughout the play, allowing the actors to twist, spiral, fall, climb, only to fall again. The device is especially effective during a great thunderstorm.
This show is a visual feast, and choreography and direction are tight and excellent. This is theatre.
