Movie Info

A science teacher attempting to win back his girlfriend during auditions for +Macbeth finds out just how powerful the curse surrounding Shakespeare's popular play truly is when he inadvertently wrecks havoc on the production by breaking the cardinal rule of every theater. Danny though that by crashing the auditions while wearing his heart on his sleeve, his girlfriend would welcome him back with open arms. Instead, the director mistook Danny's impassionate plea for forgiveness as a well-rehearsed monologue, and promptly cast him as "Witch #1." But Danny is hardly an actor, and the moment he utters the word "Macbeth" things truly start to get strange. Later, as lights fall from the ceiling and the voice of a singing pirate ghost echoes through the auditorium, Danny enlists the aid of a new-age actress, a no-nonsense self-help guru, and a science-fiction loving stage manager in saving the cast, and the love of his life, from the theater world's most infamous curse.

What the film has that so many of its impoverished cousins lack, is a fairly delightful personality, and a cute story born not of anybody's conflicted relationship with sex or obsession with urban life, but of an unbridled love for live theater.

Former Chicagoan Joe Gold wrote and stars in this not bad little comedy that is long on theatrical tradition and stereotypical characters (including a few gay ones). Not surprisingly, the material would lend itself very well to a stage adaptation.

...has its heart in the right place and is a likable little film that honors its theatrical influences.

Audience Reviews for Never Say Macbeth

Never Say Macbeth is a movie for a narrow audience -- theater fans and stage actors. For that audience, it will be indispensable viewing. For anyone else, don't bother.
