BWW Reviews: Annapolis Shakespeare Company's MACBETH Slays 'Em at Studio 111BWW Reviews: Annapolis Shakespeare Company's MACBETH Slays 'Em at Studio 111
by Cybele Pomeroy - November 24, 2014

If you like MACBETH, there's every reason you'd enjoy Annapolis Shakespeare Company's current production of MACBETH. If you don't like MACBETH but are obligated to accompany someone who does, you won't find much to pick on other than that it's MACBETH. I personally have always felt that the interesting bits of The Scottish Play happen early in the show, and the rest is hand-wringing and an inexorable descent into depravity and madness, and I'd like a word or two with the playwright about that. This is as much as I will say about the script, in the rare circumstance that you might not already know the plot. (more...)

by Chris Arneson - November 21, 2014

You still haven't taken your seat and it's almost showtime. The lobby is packed, everyone is standing. Suddenly a guy in a leather jacket and ponytail bursts through the crowd, laying down the familiar scene of fair Verona. Following him are two punks carrying weapons, and a fight breaks out. You follow them into the theater and take your seat. (more...)

by Ellen Dostal - November 11, 2014

This isn't the first time the Illyrian Players have taken on Shakespeare. In 2011, the company began its provocative theatrical conversation about gender and sex with Twelfth Night, and it has since given LA a BDSM version of The Taming of the Shrew and a gender reversed Macbeth. In addition to Shakespeare, they have produced a number of new plays; bold, edgy works that set them apart from other theatre companies, led by a vision that sees theatre as 'a subversive art form with which to change the world.'

BWW Reviews: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Presents KING LEAR at the Broad Stage in Santa MonicaBWW Reviews: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Presents KING LEAR at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica
by Shari Barrett - November 6, 2014

The several intertwined stories about characters motivated by the seven deadly sins and shocking scenes of excessive cruelty and suffering (especially the violent blinding of Gloucester, Lear's descent into madness, the raging storm, and the tragic death of Cordelia), make KING LEAR a profound exploration of the human condition in all its extremes and complexities. And when well performed by actors who fully comprehend the psyche of their character as well as the meaning of Shakespeare's vocabulary, brilliance happens. (more...)

JULIUS CAESAR is visually stunning, a feast for the ears, and boasts a commanding ensemble. If you thought JULIUS CAESAR was about guys in togas and Marc Antony's funeral speech, think again. This is a production not to miss. (more...)
