More fabulous reviews for Joseph in Macbeth have appeared online, including Time Out which awarded 4 stars for the production.   

Samantha Spiro as Lady Macbeth and Joseph Millson as Macbeth give a rousing, frenetic portrait of a power-couple with a compulsion for bloodshed... ...Millson’s constant disbelief at what he is doing is a source of much of the production’s humour. But because he performs with such conviction, cumulatively it also packs a horrific punch – not least when he makes grasp for his wife’s throat... of the warmest productions of ‘Macbeth’ you’ll ever see, but one which still strikes the requisite chill to the heart. Time Out

Millson does however deliver the famous “sound and fury” speech with a quiet desperation and indeed it is in the play’s quieter moments when he is given the chance to stand still that he really shines. The Upcoming

Joseph Millson’s Macbeth is as ruthless as they come, transformed from a nervous, incompetent wreck to an egomaniacal tyrant in one swift deadly swipe of a dagger. But, when faced with the ghost of Banquo, horror makes way for comedy as his psychotic demeanour turns mere fool and he peaks under tablecloths and jumps on tables with fear. For all the unexpected lightness, however, brutality still reigns in Best’s take on the Scottish play. Samantha Spiro and Millson excel as the power-hungry couple, with a physical performance that sees kisses turn to punches in the heat of a second. Official London Theatre

Millsom is handsome, lucid and extraordinarily well spoken, particularly in comparison with his gruff nemesis Macduff played by Stuart Bowman, who has previously been in Rab C Nesbitt and Taggart on television and talks like he still is. He gives an intelligent Macbeth but it’s a problem if he ends up looking like the best king available. Daily Express

Joseph Millson makes a striking and imposing Macbeth. Slender and tall with black hair and a black beard, which lends a darker note to the character, he is totally convincing as a fighting man, especially as he has two lethal-looking axes dangling from his belt. Violence seems engrained in his nature - at one point, he even looks as though he is about to throttle his wife. And there's more than a hint in Mr Millson's finely-crafted description that Macbeth is, even at the start of the play, a man with more than a glimmer of the manic about him, or that he is at the very least psychologically fragile.
