If you’re interested in seeing some Shakespeare, don’t make the mistake of going for the big names you can see on Broadway.  Do yourself a favor and go to the village to see Red Bull Theater’s MAC BETH, Adapted and Directed by Erica Schmidt at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.  Firstly, you’ll be seeing a far superior production, and secondly, you’ll be saving yourself a chunk of change.  And, side benefit, you’ll be spending 100 riveting minutes instead of 210 head-scratching minutes.  Oops, did I say that?  Read my full review here…
