Samuel Pepys in London - 19 April, 1667

from Diary of Samuel Pepys, 19 April 1667 , page 757:

So to the playhouse, where not much company come, which I impute to the heat of the weather, it being very hot. Here we saw Macbeth, which though I have seen it often, yet is one of the best plays for a stage, and variety of dancing and music, that ever I saw.
