"A Potent Tragedy for the Twitter Age. It's the 95 Minute 'Macbeth: Revisited'
Star and Director Jack Stehlin delivers Shakespearean verse with a precision in a production
that delivers all that murder and corruption in a condensed package. "
- Philip Brandes, Los Angeles Times
"WOW! Both innovative in style and respectful of its source material,
Macbeth: Revisited provides ample reason to revisit a classic."
If Shakespeare didn’t give Macbeth but one truly great female role, The New American Theatre makes sure to rectify that
with a cast evenly balanced between the sexes"
-Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA
"MACBETH: REVISITED Brilliantly Updates Shakespeare's Tragic Tale of Power, Greed, and the Blood-Thirst for Ambition
...Stehlin's all-encompassing portrayal of Macbeth, with his bulging eyes and vocal power perfectly suited to the going-mad King. Take note those studying the art of acting - here is your chance to again see a master of the art at work onstage!"
-Shari Barrett, Broadway World
"Profoundly Interesting and Extremely Specific Production!" "Vivid!"
