By the pricking of my thumbs
Something wicked this way comes
Yep, thanks to Shakespeare on the Sound from Tuesday till Sunday until July 2, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and the Weird Sisters will all be heading to Pinkney Park in Rowayton at 7:30 p.m.
And you don’t want to miss them.
Wicked: evil or morally wrong.
That would be Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. They invite Duncan, the king of Scotland, to their castle. Then when Duncan is sleeping Macbeth stabs him.
Duncan, a good king, had just rewarded Macbeth handsomely for valiantly defending Scotland in a war against Norway. Then Macbeth came upon the weird sisters who prophesied that he would be king. But how can he be king while Duncan is alive?
That is the question Lady Macbeth puts to him. Wicked.
Wicked: playfully mischievous.
“Knock knock!” John Hardin who plays a drunken porter cries out.
“Who’s there? the audience responds.
“Toby or not Toby.”
And on and on Mr. Hardin goes mirthfully captivating his audience seated just outside the castle in the creative circular outdoor set. Wicked.
Wicked: excellent, wonderful, Shakespearean.
Yep, that would be my assessment of Shakespeare on the Sound’s performance of Macbeth.
And if you miss one of its remaining performances?
That, from my point of view, would be a tragedy.
