Amanda Wales, Michael King, and Andy Curtiss in Measure for MeasureThree hours goes by quite quickly during Genesius Guild’s well-paced, oftentimes hilarious production of William Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure. While the piece is considered a “problem play,” as the script defies the expectations of a traditional comedy, director Jeff Coussens highlights the work’s ample amounts of humor, particularly in the production's first half. And with Coussens and his cast punching up every punchline through inflection and a sort of “nudge-nudge, wink-wink” attitude, I ended up laughing harder at Saturday's presentation, I believe, than I’ve ever laughed while watching a Shakespeare performance.

James Alt and Pat Flaherty in King LearThere may be some of you who hear the title King Lear and, knowing only of the play’s reputation as the mack daddy of all Shakespeare tragedies, immediately presume that any evening production of the piece will last well into the next morning. Allow me, then, to quell your fears: Saturday’s Genesius Guild staging of the Bard’s opus began promptly at eight o’clock, and after the night’s presentation had concluded, I was back in my car by 10:55.

Samantha Bestvina and Neil Friberg (foreground) and Robin Quinn (background) in MetamorphosesSitting down, preparing for the start of Augustana College’s Friday-night performance of Metamorphoses, I marveled at the pool that took up a majority of the stage space, but worried that it would be a gimmicky, annoying distracting from the show – a series of vignettes based on Ovid’s Greek myths.
