Director Kelby Siddons deserves a standing ovation for her creative approach and adaptation.. Jason Collins and Evie Day are mesmerizing as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Both actors deliver powerful performances.. Scott Broughton is commanding as McDuff and John Caldwell delivers a heartfelt performance as Ross.. Karen Overstreet presents a compelling performance as Banquo.. The scenes where she returns as a ghost are spectacular.. | READ FULL REVIEW
