Center-Stage CraftThe ends of calendar years always bring with them a certain amount of reflection, and questions that we find ourselves quietly grappling with. “Did I achieve personal fulfillment and happiness?” “Were there people I improperly appreciated or unintentionally wronged?” “What are we going to do about the Reader’s annual year-in-theatre article now that Thom White has moved to Kentucky?!”

Bob Hanske, Doug Adkins, Gary Adkins, and Stephen Laurel in PeaceSomewhere near the midpoint of Genesius Guild’s Peace, the leading character Trygaeus – as characters routinely do in Lincoln Park’s late-summer slapsticks – suddenly realizes that the play he’s in doesn’t really have a plot. One of his scene partners, though, tells him that perhaps that’s a good thing. After all, if they don’t have a plot, “maybe we won’t get reviewed.” Nice try, Guild.

The Skittish Play: "Macbeth," at Lincoln Park through August 9

Sarah Ade Wallace and Todd Schwartz in MacbethBefore Saturday’s opening-night presentation, executive director Doug Tschopp took the stage for Genesius Guild’s traditional pre-show announcements and T-shirt giveaway, and kindly asked the crowd for continued financial support, especially given the organization’s decreased support since 2008 from the State of Illinois. Not to make light of a very real monetary concern, but I wish power players from Nike had been there for Tschopp’s request. Because after seeing Macbeth, they might’ve happily handed over a check, considering the motto for everyone involved in director Michael King’s inspiriting production appeared to be the same: "Just do it."

Separated at Berth: "Twelfth Night," at Lincoln Park through July 20

Cayte McClanathan, Mollie Schmelzner, and Michael Carron in Twelfth NightLike a few dozen other optimistic souls, I attended Saturday’s Genesius Guild production of Twelfth Night hoping that the threatened thunderstorms would bypass the Quad Cities, or at least Rock Island’s Lincoln Park, for three hours or so. Alas, Shakespeare’s game was called on account of rain (and some major lightning) at roughly 8:30 p.m., so those of us who were willing and able were invited to return to see the rest of the show, and its opening half-hour again, on Sunday.

Going Bat-ty: "Die Fledermaus," at Lincoln Park through June 22

Steven Sepson and Sean Lynch in Die FledermausMy enjoyment of Die Fledermaus, presented by Opera@Augustana and Genesius Guild, started with the first notes heard by the orchestra playing Johann Strauss' operetta. The beauty of this ensemble’s seemingly flawless performance caused my spirit to swell with delight, and added to the experience of sitting in Lincoln Park's outdoor theatre, watching the stars appear and listening to the sounds of nature. Due to the mixture of the open-air atmosphere and the richness of Strauss’ splendidly well-performed composition, I was overwhelmed during Saturday’s performance with a sense of art and culture – and all this before a single note was sung.
