Sounds Like Fun!

A drum! A drum! Macbeth doth come. Well, sort of. His tragedy has become a comic farce in Kevin Harts McBeth, playing at the Bovine Metropolis Theatre through November 5. Dont look for Claire or Leonardo in this Shakespeare re-do -- try line cooks, clowns and trailer trash. And what of those secret, black and midnight hags we love so much? Theyre now regulars on The Weird Sisters Psychic Network. As for the music, opera fans should forget about Verdis stab at this one, screw their courage to the sticking place and make room for...the Nuge. It aint classy, but its certain to be an entertaining, fun and smart romp through the Bards work; Jerry Springer, after all, never offers soliloquies.
