WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

"Is this a dagger which I see before me? Or a pizza? Mmm, pizza..." ponders Homer Simpson aloud in the international mega-hit that is MacHomer. The side-splitting one-man show transplants Shakespeare to Springfield, home of America's favorite dysfunctional family. Bridging the gap between cartoon fun and theatrical greatness, actor Rick Miller turns Shakespeare's Macbeth into an uproarious romp with more than 50 hilarious impersonations of characters from the popular animated show. True Shakespeareans will marvel at the way humor is highlighted throughout the original script, which remains about 85% Shakespeare. And those who come more for the laughs are sure to see Shakespeare in a whole new light as well as appreciate the irony in Homer's portrayal of the Thane of Cawdor. Rick Miller is a veritable tour-de-force in the international theater scene, having created, starred in and otherwise supported dozens of productions in Canada and abroad. He has also hosted ABC's Just For Laughs, and been named one of the Most Creative People Alive by Entertainment Weekly.
