"MacHomer" presents Shakespeare's "Macbeth" with impressions of over 50 voices from the popular television show "The Simpsons". With a script that remains 85 percent Shakespeare, "MacHomer" will leave you "exhausted with laughter" (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Reviews rate the show as "truly awesome, brilliant… a must see!"(Toronto Star).

Miller, characterized by the Detroit Free Press as an "incredible performer", has acted in front of audiences in the U.S., Canada, Scotland, England, Australia, and New Zealand. "MacHomer" is in its eighth year on stage. The show is hilarious yet educational and is suitable for all ages.
