Written by Steve Callahan
What can one make of "Hamlet"?  Last night I learned that if someone is very intelligent and gifted she can "Make Hamlet" into a refreshing, gripping delight. 
The Washington University Performing Arts Department production of "Twelfth Night" is a well-acted, well-interpreted production that does a lot to please its audience. The set and lighting design, by Quinlan Maggio and Sean M. Savoie, is simple, location, time and…

Kimber Lee's "brownsville song (b-side for tray)" opens on a bare, harshly illuminated stage. Lena (Cherene Snow), a middle-aged African-American woman, is in pain. A resident of the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, Lena has been working two jobs and doing…
