Hi everyone,

We've mentioned a few offshoots lately, so I thought I would also give a
heads up about an adaptation that I saw last weekend. It's called
MacHomer, and it's a one-man performance of Macbeth using the voices
from the Simpson's. What a show! I thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband,
who is a bigger Simpson's fan than I, thought it was a little too
"busy", but he enjoyed it as well. The actor, Rick Miller, is a fabulous
impersonator. The end left a little to be desired: he sang "We Are the
World" using the Simpson's voices, and then the very end was his version
of "Bohemian Rhapsody" featuring "the 25 most annoying voices in rock n'
roll"; both songs, obviously, have nothing to do with Macbeth. But the
actual adaptation of Macbeth itself is very funny, and if you know the
Simpson's, it's even more of a hoot. There is a website for MacHomer as
well. The link is as follows: http://www.machomer.com/

Cheers!
Marcia
