Anyway, nice production, played very a la Globe, lots of laughs which struck me as probably very authentic as after all it is the juxtaposition of the comedy and tragedy within the same play that the classicists didn't like. I liked one or two of the details, such as the third murderer, Macbeth's servant, killing the other two as it was always a puzzle as to who he was or why a third murderer was necessary. And the play between Banquo and Fleance, all good stuff. A good porter at the gate though quite sure it is still unfathomable by most of any modern audience. This isn't being posey cos I had to read it up too! Not totally convinced by Macbeth but def by Lady M. To be absolutely honest I didn't go for the Witches tho they were played well. Having seen the way it was done in the RSC Slinger production where they found some way of interpreting Witches that was scary for a modern audience, in fact chilling, prancing about with pretend toads ain't gonna do it for me.
Some appalling behaviour - someone filming Macbeth near the end, quite blatently holding up a phone for all to see. So why, I wonder didn't this person see that no one else was doing it? People in and out all the time...so it's the Globe.

It didn't help being in a seat which I'm surprised the Globe have the cheek to sell at full price when a pillar blocked the front centre of the stage and being right by one of the entrances so I found watching the activites of the Stasi in tabards and the inevitable (for a hot day) stream of groundlings having to leave or being taken out more interesting.
