Anderman,Vickery and Grammer can't save it.
2 May 2000 | by peachamSee all my reviews

Phillip Anglim is a dull Macbeth that barely shows emotion,Only with a strong lead can Macbeth succeed and Anglim is quite the wrong choice. Maureen Anderman fares better as Lady Macbeth but Anglim constantly hinders her portrayal. Her sleepwalking scene is quite well done as are the portrayals of John Vickery as Malcom and Kelsey Grammar as Ross. these few elements are not enough ,however to save this stagnant production.
