Described by the Contra Costa Times as “an act of theatrical genius that respects Bart and the Bard equally...not to be missed,” Rick Miller’s one-man spectacular features impressions of over 50 voices from television’s The Simpsons in a hilarious performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth!

MacHomer is perfect for audiences of all ages. Tickets sold out when Cal Shakes presented the previous two Bay Area runs of MacHomer in 2003 and 2006; don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind theatrical experience.
