Macbeth

Starring: Alan Cumming; Director: Andrew Goldberg, John Tiffany; Author: William Shakespeare; Opening Date: 04/21/2013; Runtime (in minutes): 105

A schizophrenic patient in bloody clothing (Alan Cumming) checks into a pale-green-tiled psychiatric ward, then begins acting out Macbeth, playing all the characters himself. In a tour de force performance that never quite sheds its stuntlike nature, the Good Wife star doesn’t merely strut and fret his hour and 45 minutes upon the stage. He strips naked and bathes and tosses in his sleep and kills and cowers and dies (more than once). He even makes a convincing Lady Macbeth. (Telecharge.com) B+
