I would not say that I am the biggest Shakespeare fan. I find his work hard to read, from a linguistic standpoint, but I understand and appreciate the importance of the work. I have seen three Shakespeare performances: Romeo and Juliet, As You Like It, and, now, Macbeth: two tragedies and a comedy. Seems like I need to get a historical performance under my belt.
Two of the performances that I have seen were “professional?” performances. I do not say this to undermine the work of the Wabash College Theater Department, I only mean that the performances that I have seen were produced by large theater companies. As a matter of fact, I believe that Macbeth was just as exciting as the “larger” productions that I have attended. There are, of course, some limitations to a smaller production, but these are completely nullified by the fabulous work that is made of the set and, of course, the actors. All of this for the fabulous price of $0.00.
If you have never been to a Wabash Theater performance, I urge you to attend. They are free to the public, and are fantastic. There is one left for this season!
