Review On Macbeth


Stephen Fife

Writer, Non-Registered Critics


It gives me no pleasure to report that the acting styles are all over the place, and most of the performers are simply not up to the very demanding task of making Shakespeare’s scenes come alive, making his brilliant words sing. There are exceptions.

Steve is a 5-tool writer (plays, screenplays, novels, poetry, journalism) who has had 11 books published, 10 plays produced, and has written for the New York Times “Arts & Leisure”, Village Voice, New Republic, and many others. He is one of the few people on the planet who can lay claim to spending time with Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sandy Meisner, Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, and Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, as well as so many other extraordinary people who refused to color inside the lines. He is always on the lookout for the original and the incisive.
