Macbeth is one of my favorite Shakespeare plays. It's spooky and bloody, with some plain old insanity thrown in for fun. Very Buffy-esque, now that I think about it.
It's chock full of some good verse, too. I've always thought "Dagger of the Mind" would be an excellent title for a murder-mystery, although now that I've searched the phrase, I have just learned that it was the title for a Star Trek (original series) episode. How interesting.
And speaking of Star Trek tie-ins to Macbeth, Patrick Stewart is starring in the play on Broadway and it's supposed be awesome. Wish I could see it. If you do go and watch it, please write to tell me what you think of it.
HT: My sister, who is a big old brat because she already saw this in LONDON!!!! :o)
