Mike Jensen asked about the original stage version of the recent TV
'Macbeth'. I haven't seen the TV film yet, but on stage the weird
sisters did indeed crawl from under the table. It was quite a scary
effect.

The Porter was hilarious in the stage version. However, a lot of his
jokes revolved around a Tony Blair impersonation which may not have been
very funny outside the UK.

Hope that's helpful,
David Nicol
