Rose Theater (Broadway at 60th St., July 5-14)
Alan Cumming stars in this one-man version of the Scotland-set play, presented by Lincoln Center Festival. Teasing out the text’s references to mental illness—hallucinations, obsessive-compulsive disorder, paranoia—this National Theater of Scotland production sets Mr. Cumming in a psych ward, under surveillance, recalling events. It’s meant to distill the play—and to creep you out. “It’s ‘Macbeth’ meets ‘Paranormal Activity,’ ” said co-director John Tiffany. “If there’s anything I love as much as Shakespeare, it’s horror films.”
I’m fond of neither Shakespeare nor horror films, but say the words Alan Cumming and I’ll pretty much come running.
And then there’s the fact that it’s a re-construction of Macbeth with the promise of mental illness galore. <3
The out takes are as much fun as the final picks - Alan has no trouble entertaining himself and us while we tweak lighting and go thru wardrobe changes… I can only imagine him on the set of one of my favorite tv series - “The Good Wife” Those would be awesome out takes…. He has many faces - enjoy them!!
Can I keep this man?
