Hydeware Theatre

Through 9/16/207
Reviewed by Richard Green
You've still got one more weekend to catch a free production of Shakespeare's great tale of guilt and ambition in Tower Grove Park. But please note: in this Macbeth, there are no buckets of blood being spilt; nor any turgid mood lighting; nor any migraine-inducing synthesizer music. Instead, three very talented people just race around like mad to portray 24 fascinating characters, providing all the entertainment you could ask for. And in their child-like exuberance, relying on brilliant, clear verbiage, Hydeware Theatre gives us a Macbeth that finally treats its audience like grown-ups.

A Clash of Swords

The Tin Ceiling

Through 7/22/2007
Reviewed by Richard Green
The Tin Ceiling's new double-bill is quite a double-edged sword itself. The first play of the evening, Dragon's Lair, is a very funny look inside the world of Camelot, as bored, dashing knights torment a relentlessly cheerful servant. It's a terrific addition to the Tin Ceiling's canon of new works.
