Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Infamously known as the cursed Scottish play, Macbeth is perhaps Shakespeare's darkest tragedy. When General Macbeth is foretold by three witches that he will one day be King of Scotland, Lady Macbeth convinces him to get rid of anyone who could stand in his way including committing regicide. As Macbeth ascends to the throne through bloody murder, he becomes a tyrant consumed by fear and paranoia.

A full cast L.A. Theatre Works performance starring James Marsters as Macbeth, Joanne Whalley as Lady Macbeth alongside: Josh Cooke, JD Cullum, Dan Donohue, Jeannie Elias, Chuma Gault, Jon Matthews, Alan Shearman, Andr Sogliuzzo, Kate Steele and Kris Tabori.

Review:

"Audio productions of Shakespeare's work can be a challenge to execute, but L.A. Theatre Works delivers a gripping full-cast dramatization that keeps listeners engaged from start to finish. When Macbeth is told he will one day become king of Scotland, Lady Macbeth hatches an evil plot that ends in bloody regicide and tragedy. James Marsters delivers an admirable performance as Macbeth, conveying the character's conflicting emotions and subsequent arrogance. Equally skilled is Joanne Whalley, whose Lady Macbeth transforms from a determined and opportunistic woman in the beginning of the play to a depressed and despairing one in the final act. Recorded in front of a live audience, this well-produced audio also features music and sound effects — all of which make for an absolutely entertaining listening experience."
