Macbeth - A Comedy
Adapted by Dawn Romanowski

V.12 - Asper Centre for Theatre and Film (U of W) 
What if Macbeth and the gang lived happily ever after?
Macbeth is as ambitious as ever, Lady Macbeth still wears the kilt in the family and King Duncan remains blissfully oblivious. But somehow, and despite the witches' best efforts, everything comes together for Macbeth and his friends in this rollicking adaptation of Shakespeare's classic play.
If you're into Shakespeare, if you miss the angry dancing of the 90s or if you just love to laugh with wild abandon, you've come to the right place. Lay on, Winnipeg.

Macbeth – A Comedy

Parkview Productions—Asper Centre (U of W)

Could a happily ever after be in store for the tragic wannabe king? This play seeks to show us that. The cast had a lot of energy and clearly a love of what they do. The sight gags were pretty funny and there were some good one liners. That doesn’t change the fact that for most of the show I didn’t laugh at all. The ending felt forced as did most of the pop culture references they tried to throw in from left field. It was a lot of forced acting and seemed to be all over the place. If you are going to have more than 20 scene changes, the following scenes should generally be longer than 30 seconds. The whole play felt very thrown together and strange. It might be best to leave the bard alone and try something else.
