Always looking for new worlds to conquer, Gioachino Rossini wrote GUILLAUME TELL in French, as Paris became the center of the opera world. Despite his successes there, this was to be his operatic swan song, a story glorifying a revolutionary character--with a message that resonated, loud and strong, at the performance the night after the troubling American election.

All in all, MACBETH presented by Something For Nothing Theatre is an enjoyable evening of accessible theatre. Although the play falters in act two, the show itself is mostly well done. The talent of the women in this production is the undeniable force driving the show. While by no means are their characters innocent, one wonders if Macbeth would have fared better if he had listened to them a little closer.

Like Sheep to Water, or Fuente Ovejuna, by Lope de Vega,  was written in the early 1600s, but has been largely unproduced in the United States.  Similar to a Shakespearean history, it's based on actual events that occurred in the Castilian region of Spain in 1476.  This production was translated and adapted by Trinity Rep Artistic Director Curt Columbus, and manages to stir up plenty of emotion while injecting much-needed moments of comic relief.  While the production, costumes and performances are excellent as they always are at Trinity Rep, the play itself is somewhat underwhelming despite containing classic themes of romance and triumph over oppression.

What if Shakespeare's Macbeth wasn't the end of the story? It's intriguing, isn't it; to consider a world in which Lady Macbeth might have survived, for she would most certainly not have gone quietly into the night. Playwright David Greig thought so too and, beginning March 27th, LA Shakespeare lovers will have a chance to see his modern day sequel to The Scottish Play when the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Shakespeare Company bring DUNSINANE to The Wallis in Beverly Hills.

Who is The Real President? 'Some people seek power for the love of power. They enjoy power and all the trappings that come with power. They want to feel important and seeking power is the end in itself. 'Others seek power because it gives them an opportunity to make money. The salary, allowances and influence bring them opportunities to increase their wealth. 'I seek power for none of these reasons.' - The Real President, 2015 All over the world today, the issues of political power, accountability and governance are throwing countries into political and economic chaos. From Africa to the Middle East, from the Americas to Asia the story of political greed and conflict is all but too common with increasing numbers of failed states. 'The Real President' is the timely debut novel by Noah Kaindama, charting the many perils of Moses Kamawu as he decides to challenge the incumbent tyrant president who has run down his country - a seemingly brave but increasingly dangerous mission. The president is brutal, stubborn and accustomed to ruling with impunity, but drawn into Moses' irresistible vision, ordinary citizens band together and fight to usher change into their country. It is a must read not only by aspiring presidents but all citizens who are faced with a dilemma of casting a vote to bring about change that impacts positively upon the life of every citizen. Set in the fictional African country of Lubanda, the book explores familiar questions many real African countries and citizens continue to grapple with as they either fight to create a true nation state or face life as pawns in a tyrant's playground. About the Author Noah Kaindama was born in Zambia when it was still known to the world as Northern Rhodesia. Eventually leaving his country, whilst it was under the thumb of one party rule, he has lived in much of Southern Africa until settling in the UK with his family. He recalls winning his very first writing competition prize in 1979 at college but never took up writing seriously until now. He has worked in education for many years and is a committed family man, very much looking forward to spending his retirement writing and enjoying quiet life in his beloved Zambia. Critical Praise What a brilliant book. It should serve as a blueprint for the perfect African state - an excellent warning as well as a guide for potential presidents and leaders! In a sense it's an utopian novel. By the end of the book I can see how it all works well as a predictive novel in the face of a potential Eurasian super state that could envelope Africa as well as Europe. Charles Muller, Diadem Books A gripping, refreshing read. Lubanda feels familiar and the tyrant is all too real.

A sickness is spreading in Thebes. King Oedipus (KC Ryan) is so certain of their own claim to the throne that they don't ask questions when those who do not support them are rounded up and locked away due to 'illness'. (Take note of the singular 'they' here - this inclusive pronoun is used throughout the show.) Meanwhile, elections are taking place in Thebes and someone has betrayed the royal family - but whom?

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.
