I, on another paw, have been involved with two productions of it and can
recite great swaths from memory. Now you can go back and read _Wyrd
Sisters_ with renewed appreciation. There's a lot of Hamlet in Wyrd
Sisters, too, but it doesn't stand out as much. [Ghost of dead father,
If you want to see it*, Roman Polanski made a move of it back in the
70s with a young Macbeth [Jon Finch] and a young Lady Macbeth
[Francesca Annis]. You should be able to find it on tape ....
*Macbeth, not Wyrd Sisters. Obviously. The Wyrd Sisters film is _much_
more recent, animated, and the only person whose voice is in it that I
can remember is Christopher Lee as Death.
