Jake Walker, Stephanie Burrough, Chris Sanders-Ring, and Kitty Israel in Love's Labour's LostWhile waiting for the Prenzie Players' Thursday-night dress rehearsal of the William Shakespeare comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost to begin, I realized it had been a long time since I had seen one of the Bard of Avon’s plays performed live. I pondered whether I would be able to follow the plot and comprehend the dialogue. I worried that the show might be too stuffy for my unrefined sense of theatre. “Holy crap, I'm supposed to write a review – what if I don’t get it?” Yet as the show began, the Prenzies put my neuroses to rest very quickly.

Matt Moody in Timon of AthensI came across a quote this past week that read: “A true friend talks trash to your face and is fiercely loyal behind your back.” While the sentiment came to my attention at a particularly poignant time for me personally, it also fits almost perfectly with the core theme in William Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens, currently being presented by the Prenzie Players.

Harvey and Mike Kelly in HarveyI’ve not seen the Jimmy Stewart take on playwright Mary Chase’s Harvey, so I cannot attest whether the movie's fans will appreciate the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production. However, in the absence of any comparison, I can say that I liked this presentation and now want to see the film – though it’ll have to successfully stand up against director James Fairchild’s version, rather than the other way around.

And the Tony Goes to … : "Antony & Cleopatra" at the QC Theatre Workshop through May 9

Kristin Skaggs and J.C. Luxton in Antony & CleopatraMuch of Friday’s performance of the Prenzie Players’ Antony & Cleopatra played almost like a romantic comedy. Director Kate Farence’s staging of William Shakespeare’s tragedy feels lighter and funnier than perhaps the material calls for, with the titular couple enjoying their post-Julius Caesar relationship – and ultimately dealing with Rome’s political power plays and battles – amidst a den of hedonism, with hippie-esque attendants engaging in swinging orgies and drug use. Matt Moody’s set design even has the lovers reclining on a tiered platform covered in colorful pillows and blankets, a seeming nod to the pair’s interest in each other over the power of a throne. And the personality in Farence’s production proves titillating – and should make the show more palatable for those who might not enjoy a stuffier version.

Matt Moody and Michael Carron in Things Being What They AreThe beauty of New Ground Theatre’s comedy Things Being What They Are lies in how our hearts gradually soften for Michael Carron’s crotchety, imposing Jack, a rudely forward character who pushes his presence onto his neighbor Bill (Matt Moody), and whom playwright Wendy MacLeod uses to explore themes of marriage and mortality.
