says "Best Twist on an old Bard" was CWRU/CPH MFA's Macbeth!

"But Taibi Magar's "Macbeth," performed by the Case Western Reserve University-Cleveland Play House MFA Acting Program's class of 2018, was a high-concept, postmodern marvel, as riveting a take on the Bard's cautionary tale of tyranny and unchecked ambition as I've ever seen. It's also the most thrilling.

Magar's lean production kicked off with the trio of witches - outfitted more like characters from "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" than the Scottish play - eating popcorn while watching TV in a spooky cabin in the woods. (They are apparently avid consumers of cable news.)"
