Barnaby Monk noon, Dec. 24
Intrepid Shakespeare Company's opening, to quote the play, was a "rough night." Performances varied greatly. A few - Francis Gercke's Banquo; Jim Chovick's excellent Porter/Seyton -- were assured from the start. As Lady Macbeth, Sandy Campbell found an Ophelia-like frailty in the end, a wonderful choice, though Campbell was less convincing as the un-sexed "fiend." Sean Cox played Macbeth mostly from the neck up. But Macbeth is, first and foremost, a warrior. His feelings rise from his feet. The Three Witches -- Savvy Scopelleti, Tiffany Tang, Erin Peterson -- were a treat. Thanks to uncredited choreography, they remained strange and otherworldly throughout. The opening night performance had a "give it a week" feel.
