Macbeth at it's finest. (Jan. 12th final showing),
Jan 19, 2014
reviewer: from Milford, Connecticut
This play was very entertaining to me. The set was well crafted, and the center stage was a giant black emblem which seemed very suitable to the atmosphere they created. The acting was superb, in my opinion, with the witches almost stealing the show. John Glover's performance was brilliant, Anne-Marie Duff was excellent as Lady Macbeth, and Ethan Hawke's portrayal was strong and emotional. For an actor doing a Shakespearean play, arguably the most difficult stage acting in existence, I think Ethan Hawke gets an A+ for effort. Perhaps his voice isn't well suited for the verse, which made comprehension difficult at times for me, but he maintained good volume, never faltered or missed a beat, and his physical performance was spot on. I saw the early reviews, and if his performance was weak when the play opened, as some said, I imagine it grew stronger with each night, as he gained confidence in his role and grew accustomed to the stage. Some people forget that actors are only human.

Macbeth,
Nov 17, 2013
reviewer: from New York, New York
A disaster, mostly because of the miscasting of Ethan Hawke as Macbeth. He was an embarrassment to his fellow actors and insulting to the Lincoln Center audience because he appeared not to care if anyone heard him or not. His performance was completely lacking in stage presence and voice projection. I rarely leave at intermission, but I was forced to because it became painful to watch this production. Where was the director? For shame, Lincoln Center.
