Publisher's Summary

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.

Enjoyable all-cast performance

I greatly enjoyed listening to this full-cast performance. There was great chemistry between the lead cast Mr. Marsters and Mrs. Whalley which sparked the story.
The sound effects were appropriate and didn't distract. A few of the male voices sounded similar, so sometimes it took a while to distinguish the different characters (if you are not very familiar with the lines)
All in all a production in the typical LATW quality and a bargain if you look at the price.

Might want to Read Along

Ok, unless you have the play memorized, this is hard to follow without the characters before you on the stage, but it is still just EXCELLENT. Don't let that difficulty stop you, just listen to this with the play or a guide in front of you, so you always remember who is speaking and where they are.
