Esme does not see Jess. Boston Court presents Everything You Touch by Sheila Callaghan, directed by Jessica Kubzansky. The play is a world premier co-production with Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.

Pericles and Richard II

Pericles and Richard II

“A tempest-tossed hero’s quest.” “Pirates, goddesses, jousting knights, and a lost princess, Pericles, Prince of Tyre, is a…magical mystery tour…” So is described A Noise Within’s current production of Shakespeare’s Pericles, Prince of Tyre, directed by Julia Rodriguez-Elliott. Though one of the “least-performed and most suspect plays in the Shakespeare canon,” (curtainup.com) Pericles has a […]

Tempest in the Garden

Tempest in the Garden

“It’s a dark and stormy night.” So Shakespeare’s The Tempest begins—not with those exact words, of course, but with a storm conjured by Prospero, the former Duke of Milan, setting this tale in motion. A more appropriate quote may be from the play itself, with its shipwreck victims, a strange plot, and a mischievous spirit—”Misery […]

POP’s Mikado

POP’s Mikado

They describe Yum-Yum as “the very happiest girl in Japan,” Peep Po as “pert as a school girl well can be,” and says of Pitti Sing that her “saber true cuts cleanly through the cervical vertebrae.” And with that, the Pacific Opera Project introduces their latest production, Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado, which is scheduled for Porticos […]

Best Loved Love Scenes from the Bard

Best Loved Love Scenes from the Bard

What better way to welcome summer than to buy some fresh ciabatta, soft cheeses, a few slices of sopressata, and a bottle of pinot grigio, then pack it all up with some napkin-covered wine glasses, some plates, and a good bread knife and head over to Farnsworth Park to watch…Lovers. The California Shakespeare Ensemble members […]

Isadora Duncan: Free

Isadora Duncan: Free

Even those too young to know the whole story, know of the scarf. Yet, Isadora Duncan (1877-1927) was much more than the legend who died so tragically when her scarf became entangled in the open-spoked wheel of a Bugatti where it quickly pulled taut, then snapped her neck. She was a free-spirit and free-thinker, and more importantly, she was […]
