Set in the mob run 90s, the soundtrack .. was as though it were written for the piece. Starting with the ominous "Things Can Only Get Better" and finding one of its many climaxes with Prodigy's "Fire Starter", this production undeniably showed the power of music. Finding inspiration in classic horror films, it is a must see for all those willing to allow the hairs on their neck to stand on end.
Based on a disturbingly raw set that makes the audience feel they've stumbled into an abandoned slaughterhouse, this choice becomes very apt as the story progresses. Everyman's production brings new life to a well known story, and makes it feel more relevant than ever. With an extremely strong cast who make Shakespeare's words sound like second nature, this show will not disappoint. This is Shakespeare for the masses.
"Something wicked this way comes", yes.. it most certainly does.
