Millersville’s students presented an aggressive and contemporary production of Macbeth last weekend directed by Tony Elliot. There were four performances total in Clair performance hall over the course of four days. Dramatic lighting and fog enhanced the strong acting from main characters Juan Morales, Cara Clase and the rest of the cast.
The witches Allison Wray, Christine Furey and Rikki Etter played a refreshing and haunting depiction of Shakespeare’s ‘weird sisters.’ Dan Weaver played Duncan so convincingly that I can’t imagine him as anything but a king.The audience followed Morales through the deep spiral of guilt and rage that propels the plot of Macbeth to the action-packed show that it is. The experienced cast of performers showed why Macbeth is one of the classics.
