For some, The Tragedy of Macbeth is his downfall due to power, corruption, murder and wishy-washy masculinity—for others, the tragedy is having to sit through it all. Still, this most famous of Shakespearean plays is essential to every theater’s summer season and must be experienced at least once by those whose closest relationship to a Mac is usually nuggets.

Out I say!” (hence appropriated by anyone whose wet dog busts into the living room), Macbeth has icky gore, dreadful deceit, spooky supernatural occurrences and crusty old witches galore.
