Ziggy Stardust as Macbeth played by a woman with incredible bone structure
Bafflingly, they're still opening with an unrelated dance routine but their approach to the play, based on strong character performances with 70s glam styling works enjoyably well for the most part. Get Over It are an absurdist, all female troupe but this is a traditional interpretation with added dance routines and a touching focus on the relationship between the Macbeths. Towards the climax, however, the show verges on the pantomimic as Macbeth's ruthlessly obtained kingship collapses round his platform boots. There's a lack of gravitas to sustain the high drama and mass slaughter right through to the final line. We blame the silver suit.
But this is a gutsy, fun production of the Scottish play with a priceless Porter performance and you've got 3 more opportunities to see it.
