Commentary – Emily Evans

Yesterday, I attended the production of MacBeth. It was a great experience because I have not read or seen much Shakespeare. I found the set design very interesting. I liked how it reached into the rows of seats to make the audience feel more engaged. I liked how the set jutted out because when Lady MacBeth was grieving at the beginning and sitting at the front of the stage, I saw the contrast between dialogue in the background and a character in the front. It was also interesting how the trap doors were used to portray different actions, such as the letters being given to Lady MacBeth by the witches. I also enjoyed how the characters sometimes came into the audience, as it was another chance to be immersed in the show. I also wanna give a big shoutout to the esteemed Turner Wood on the lights.
