1 Smoking cigarettes? They didn't exist in Macbeth's time, or Shakespeare's either. Pipes, yes.

If they wanted to attach a meaningful warning to the production, they might have said that "Shakespeare presents a fanciful idea of Macbeth, who was an effective king and reined for many years, successfully. There was no historical McDuff." I know this from a family history compiled by a cousin of mine, and Macbeth is one of our forebears. So's King Kenneth McAlpine, but as I've read elsewhere, just about anybody with Scots blood can claim the king as an ancestor. Apparently, he was busy at night.

2 Yes, by all historical accounts MacBeth was a very effective king.

No doubt Shakespeare took great liberties with him.

You're related? Cool! But don't expect me to call you "Your Majesty"...

3 Oh, darn... I had hopes.

More history is that King Duncan was weak, ineffective and corrupt. Lady Macbeth's offing him was part of a political feud; kind of a Scottish version of Arkancide. Not a nice thing to do, but she actually did the country a favor.

You have to fast-forward to the present to find the three witches; actually we have more than three: The Squad, Pelosi, Feinstein.

5 Politics used to be cut-throat - literally. We live in a strange time where it is only words hurled (except with the Clintons.) It's not surprising Lady MacBeth killed old King Duncan. It was par for the course.

Uneasy lies the head that bears the crown.
