Michelangelo's BacchusTheatre

The Acharnians

Lincoln Park

Saturday, July 27, through Sunday, August 4

 

Hard as it is to believe, summer’s almost over. And I know it’s almost over because it’s already time for Genesius Guild’s annual, end-of-summer slapstick in Rock Island’s Lincoln Park – which, this year, is Guild founder Don Wooten’s take on the Aristophanes comedy The Acharnians.

Genesius Guild presents CoriolanusTheatre

Coriolanus

Lincoln Park

Saturday, July 13, through Sunday, July 21, 8 p.m.

 

In the Cole Porter stage classic Kiss Me, Kate, a musical largely based on William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, a pair of goofy mobsters sing a comedic ditty titled “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.” The song offers a how-to guide on the wooing of women through knowledge of the Bard’s works, and one set of lyrics transpires thusly:

     “If she fights when her clothes you are mussing,

     What are clothes? Much Ado About Nussing.

     If she says your behavior is heinous,

     Kick her right in the Coriolanus.”

Just thought I’d get that gag out of the way early, because it would be impossible to discuss Genesius Guild’s forthcoming production seriously if you spent this whole piece thinking, “Hee hee hee ... anus ... .”

Juan Angel ChavezExhibit

No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, June 29, through Sunday, October 6

 

Beginning on June 29, Davenport’s Figge Art Museum will be house a special, site-specific installation by Juan Angel Chavez, and on the venue’s Web site, the Chicago-based artist’s intention with the piece is stated thusly: “In his use of refuse and other found objects, Chavez seeks to draw attention to socially deviant behavior and other ‘unwanted’ activities.”

The man could’ve saved himself a lot of trouble, and a lot of refuse, merely by peeking in the windows of the nearby Reader offices, but I won’t tell him if you won’t.

Souls of MischiefMusic

Souls of Mischief

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, June 22, 8:30 p.m.

 

Do you consider yourself a big fan of the hip-hop ensemble Souls of Mischief? Do you consider yourself such a big fan that you could recite every word in the group’s 93 ’til Infinity album by memory? Then prove it, smart guy! Prove it!

What I mean is that you can prove it if you attend Souls of Mischief’s June 22 concert at the Rock Island Brewing Company, and mouth along while the artists perform 93 ’til Infinity in its entirety. Sorry if that “Prove it!” came off a little confrontational. I would’ve followed it with a wink-y emoticon, but I think that looks kinda stupid in print.

Jessica Warren-AcostaMusic

Jessica Warren-Acosta & Marguerite Lynn Williams

Figge Art Museum

Saturday, June 1, 6:30 p.m.

 

If you’re looking to enjoy an afternoon of musical entertainment and cultural enrichment, I urge you to take this article’s information to heart. Why? Because I’ve got principals.

No, that’s not a misspelling. What I mean is that I have news about a special concert featuring Jessica Warren-Acosta, the principal flutist for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra, and Marguerite Lynn Williams, the principal harpist for the Lyric Opera of Chicago. If I actually had principles, I wouldn’t make you suffer through lame What’s Happenin’ puns every two weeks.
