BWW Reviews: Rediscovered French Farce THE METROMANIACS Sparkles at Shakespeare Theatre CompanyBWW Reviews: Rediscovered French Farce THE METROMANIACS Sparkles at Shakespeare Theatre Company
by Jeffrey Walker - Feb 13, 2015

THE METROMANIACS might not be Moliere but it is a delicious romp thanks to the expert direction by Shakespeare Theatre Company artistic director Michael Kahn and playwright David Ives. Ives new comedy in English is taken from a rediscovered farce, LA METROMANIE by Alexis Piron. If the winter weather has got you down, I urge you to get tickets to THE METROMANIACS for disguises and ruses and verse-ical abuses. Kahn and Ives third collaboration as director and playwright/adapter - after THE LIAR and THE HEIR APPARENT - have struck gold again finding high art in the silliness of lesser known French comedies.

BWW Reviews: DUNSINANE In Macbeth's Scotland a Timeless Quest for  JusticeBWW Reviews: DUNSINANE In Macbeth's Scotland a Timeless Quest for Justice
by Pamela Roberts - Feb 7, 2015

Dunsinane, presented by The Shakespeare Theatre Company through February 21, shows us that the precarious balance among victor, vanquished, and peace-keeper is a timeless dilemma stretching from Macbeth's heaths to the Iraqi dessert. Dunsinane picks up where Shakespeare's Macbeth leaves off, when the English army, camouflaged as forest trees, kills the tyrant and takes the seat of power. But in the confusion of the skirmish a critical and messy mistake is made: the Queen of Scotland, Lady Macbeth, remains alive. With the queen living and with a claim to the throne, many in the country will refuse to accept a newly-installed king. (more...)

Shakespeare Uncovered Preview: OTHELLO with David HarewoodShakespeare Uncovered Preview: OTHELLO with David Harewood
by Ellen Dostal - Feb 5, 2015

In the fourth installment of Shakespeare Uncovered - Series 2, David Harewood asks a very difficult question. Could you kill a person you love? Shakespeare made his audience confront that question when he created the character of Othello 400 years ago. It holds a key to understanding how such a strong warrior could end up so vulnerable that he would actually consider killing his wife. Harewood says, 'Whether you love him or hate him, we have to understand Othello. If you don't understand Othello, I don't think you understand yourself.' (more...)
