Bob Hanske and Patti Flaherty in AjaxI make a conscious effort to suppress expectations prior to seeing a production, for fear they’ll rise to the unattainable. With Genesius Guild’s Ajax, however, I couldn’t help it. I was so taken with last year’s Andromache, performed in traditional period masks, that I was giddy with anticipation to see this summer’s Greek-tragedy offering. And despite a few apparent stumbles over lines and one glaringly missed cue, director Don Wooten’s effort did not disappoint. Saturday night’s performance of Sophocles’ piece captivated me with its creative execution.

David Cabassa and Angela Rathman in The Taming of the ShrewIf, at any point, you find your mind wandering during director Jeff Coussens’ Genesius Guild presentation of The Taming of the Shrew – and trust me, that won’t happen often – snapping back to attention is easy: Just check out the reactions of the men watching the show from stage right. You’ll have no trouble spotting them, because one of the guys is drunk off his ass, and the other’s wearing a dress.

Fantastic Voyage: "Pericles, Prince of Tyre," at St. Peter's Episcopal Church through Sunday, November 21

Jeb Makula and J.C. Luxton in Pericles: Prince of TyneI’ve enjoyed every Prenzie Players production I’ve seen to date, but perhaps none more so than Pericles, Prince of Tyre. That’s actually odd to say, since William Shakespeare’s tale of the world's luckiest unlucky prince – a seafarer who really should just avoid the sea altogether – wouldn’t necessarily be called “fun.” Director Andy Koski and his cast, however, manage to find the humor in the script and bring it to the forefront, embellishing it and even adding quips of their own, and elicited lots of laughs from Saturday night’s audience.

Students' Congress: "The Shape of Things," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through October 17

Maggie Woolley and Matt Mercer in The Shape of ThingsAuthor Neil LaBute is known, and respected, for pushing the envelope with his plays. The Richmond Hill Barn Theatre generally produces plays that are comparatively safe in theme and style. So it’s a somewhat surprising thing to see LaBute’s The Shape of Things on the barn-theatre stage – and, I think, a very good thing, too. Because while some of the play’s elements are offensive, its central themes of art, relationships, and what we're willing to do for love are well worth examining. And happily, they're examined here in a production that is also thoughtfully staged and performed.
