BroadwayBaby review (4 stars): "ImmerCity’s stripped back and stylised telling of the ever popular Scottish play is an at times disorienting, nightmarish and incredibly compelling piece of theatre that will give you shivers as you leave the auditorium. Using only three actors, minimal props and costumes, and an almost empty set, the company craft the tale of Macbeth, the titular soldier whose own ambition drives him to horrible acts of greed and bloodlust." http://broadwaybaby.com/shows/fire-burn-the-tragedy-of-macbeth/713035
