Three Weird Sisters, sexy love scenes, sword fights, and murder. I tell you, life doesn’t get much better than this. Well, at least for a certain theatre reviewer it doesn’t. Not even the mosquitoes could keep me from enjoying Riverside Theatre’s summer production of Macbeth at the company’s Shakespeare Festival in Iowa City.

About a year ago, Genesius Guild members J.C. Luxton and Cait Woolley had an idea: to bring Shakespearean theatre to a more intimate space than the outdoor Lincoln Park venue in which the Guild performs every summer.

Witches, Murder, and Gold Shoes: Genesius Guild’s "Macbeth"

In this weather, I pity the actors in Genesius Guild’s production of Macbeth. In addition to the fact they’re on stage wearing three layers of clothing and toting swords, shows are performed at Rock Island’s Lincoln Park outdoor theatre, which draws little breeze, lots of bugs, and, of course, heat. Though these aren’t ideal conditions for actors, or for audience members, people willing to brave the heat for three hours and put on the bug spray will be more than pleased to see an incredibly well-done yet traditional version of one of Shakespeare’s great tragedies.

Ninja-style nuns, two sets of twins separated at birth, woeful lovers, men vaguely resembling Elvis, and a society divided by religious differences. These and more are part of the annual Shakespeare festival at Riverside outdoor theatre in Iowa City, with The Comedy of Errors and Romeo & Juliet on stage in repertory through July 7.

Mekhi Phifer in OO

We’ve had so many reinterpretations of Shakespeare’s classics in recent years, and so many that have been surprisingly fine (I’m thinking of 10 Things I Hate About You, the Ethan Hawke Hamlet, and the genre’s standard-bearer, Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet), that you’re inclined to give O, which sets Othello in the world of high-school basketball, the benefit of the doubt.
