**** Highly Recommended **** Men in kilts, swordfights, witches, murder, mayhem – and that’s just the first act! Chicago Shakespeare Theatre’s production of “Macbeth” is not to be missed. Shakespeare’s psychological thriller takes place in a dark world of greed and overwhelming ambition. Add a little moody magic, throw in some smoke and mirrors – and this “Macbeth” should draw just as many gasps as any movie thriller. 4 BIG Spotlights
