Short Review: Macbeth
Set in 11th century Scotland, this production of the Shakespeare classic is based on paganism and ancient ritual, with chanting witches and drums to accentuate the feeling onstage. Strong performances by all, particularly William Elsman in the title role, make this an excellent production. Wed 7pm, Thu 7pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 7 pm, Sun 2pm. Through 3/18; $15-$35; Sacramento Theatre Company, 1419 H Street; (916) 443-6722; www.sactheatre.org.
