Macbeth is an exciting, passionate, musical retelling of Shakespeare's classic play in a unique Steampunk-inspired world. The story, while staying true to the play, has an original script with enough changes to make it accessible as a musical, entertaining as a story, and different enough to keep you involved. The story follows very intimately the relationships and interactions with the characters that are so frequently glossed over; the friendships, the betrayals, the manipulations, and the violence that arise because of these intimacies. But throughout the interaction between the characters, one also gets a rare glimpse inside them. We are able to finally feel their loss, their confusion, their love, and their rage.
The music is melodic and memorable, and the lyrics are involved and poetic; both with a modern edge. The music and lyrics take advantage of thematic elements that are peppered and even hidden throughout the show, all of this binding the show together to attain cathartic climaxes for the characters.
