There’s nothing I love more than seeing young people participate in live theater, and I have a real soft spot for the works of Shakespeare. So I looked forward to experiencing Washington University’s production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It.
The Washington University Ovations Series continued its 2011–2012 offerings with a performance by The Water Coolers, a company based in New York.
For thousands of years gemstones have been mounted in artistic settings—the purpose being to enhance the beauty of the stone itself.
The Washington University Ovations Series continued its 2010–2011 offerings with a performance of 500 Clown Frankenstein, by 500 Clown, a theatrical group out of Chicago. Taking over the University's Edison Theatre for two nights--the first night with their take on Macbeth, and the second with Frankenstein--the company offered the audience physical tomfoolery, flights of fancy, strange and inventive costumes, unlikely situations, faux physical abuse, and, in a word, nonsense. The results were interesting. Interesting, but not necessarily entertaining.
