by BWW News Desk - February 17, 2017

Theatre In The Heights is thrilled to present its next production of the season! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare(Abridged)[Revised] is a side-splitting comedy in which all 37 Shakespeare plays are presented in a hilarious mash-up all in about 97 minutes! Three madcap men in tights weave their way through all of Shakespeare's comedies, histories, and tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter. If you don't know Shakespeare, you'll love the mockery and if you do love Shakespeare, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the subtle hard to catch references. An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard's plays, THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED) was London's longest-running comedy.  (more...)

BWW Review: Crazy For You, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Trinity RepBWW Review: Crazy For You, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Trinity Rep
by Andria Tieman - February 15, 2017

Shakespeare can be a hard sell sometimes. His plays are long, they're frequently hard to understand, and often going to one seems like something you should do, rather than something you want to do. Well, Trinity Rep's production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM is the spoonful of sugar that makes the cultural medicine go down. Every detail of the sets and the costumes of this production is so well thought out that they create the perfect mashup of 1980's high school culture, which suits the storyline of the play to a T. After all, so many of Shakespeare's plays are about teenagers in love, why not set them at a prom in the 80's? Similar to Beowulf earlier this season, the cast and crew hold absolutely nothing back and this production is a cascade of color, glitter and Aqua Net with some excellent musical choices that need to be on their own mixtape.

BWW Review: Spare, Disorienting RICHARD III at Chesapeake Shakespeare CompanyBWW Review: Spare, Disorienting RICHARD III at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
by Jack L. B. Gohn - February 13, 2017

This version of Richard III has been stranded in a World War I setting where it does not fit very well, and gives us an exceedingly tight focus on Richard himself, to the exclusion of a plethora of characters and relationships. The spareness of the resulting work is disorienting. Who are all these people and why are we supposed to care about them, again? Maybe we'll figure it out and maybe we won't. Richard remains a fascinating character: a moral and physical cripple who takes the audience into his confidence and challenges us to dislike him as he schemes, murders, seduces, and marries his way onto the throne.
