  • East Meets West

    Shakespeare Festival's Macbeth puts new spin on classic
      Director Charles Fee has taken the Scottish play out of Scotland, visually at least, and dropped into feudal Japan. The East-meets-West effect is strikingly effective and it doesn't take a great leap for audiences to accept the new feel of the classic play.

  • Idaho Shakespeare Festival Presents Noises Off

      The production is a play-within-a-play, in which actors play actors and stage crew who are stuck in one of the most woebegone plays ever--the fictional and aptly titled Nothing On. It doesn't help that the cast members (the fictional ones in the fictional play--confused yet?) come with their own colorful, questionable and altogether unimpressive resumes. The result is a tribute to comedic timing and all-around silliness.

  • Idaho Shakespeare Festival Presents The Winter's Tale

    Friday, Aug. 3-Wednesday, Aug. 8

      The play is not commonly seen on the modern stage, yet it has all the elements that have made Shakespeare's works so omnipresent.

      Here's how it breaks down: A king convinces himself that his wife and his best friend (a king from a neighboring land) are having an affair and that the child his wife is pregnant with is not his own. Cue the murder plot, the fleeing into the woods, the imprisonment and a whole lot of ill will and, of course, quite a few untimely deaths.

    Area theater companies ready new seasons
      Usually, a couple of theater companies tend to dominate the headlines (here's a hint: one is associated with a famous English writer and the other just bought its own theater space). Not that they're not deserving of such attention, but the smaller guys in town are just biding their time and preparing a season of entertainment.

    Idaho Shakespeare Festival Tackles the Long-Running play by Agatha Christie
      The Mousetrap pulls audiences through a maze of hidden motivations, secret identities, red herrings and, of course, murder in grand fashion, keeping everyone guessing the killer's identity up until the big reveal.
