Shakespeare's whimsical tale of romance, mischief and magic is updated via a new setting: New York City at the height of the Great Depression. The story follows four young lovers -- all the teenaged offspring of mob bosses -- as they flee to Central Park to escape the watchful eyes of their fathers' henchmen. In the park's shantytown, they encounter Oberon, king of the fairies and a gambler who's fallen on hard times, along with his queen, Titania, an out-of-work actress. When a group of lower-class craftsmen rehearsing a play there also gets caught up in the madness, a comical snarl of spells grows and seems impossible to sort out. But with fairies and sprites all around, it just takes a little more magic and, as Puck puts it, "all is mended." [less-]

The students of Catholic University's Musical Theatre program perform Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel", which "Time" magazine called the best musical of the century. Swaggering, carefree carnival barker Billy captivates and marries naive millworker Julie. Losing his job just as he learns that Julie is pregnant, Billy, desperate to provide a decent life for his family, is coerced into being an accomplice to a robbery. Caught in the act and facing prison, he takes his own life and is sent "up there." Returning to earth for one day 15 years later, Billy encounters the daughter he never knew. A lonely, friendless teenager, her father's reputation as a thief and a bully has haunted her throughout her young life. How Billy instills in both the child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love. It's easy to understand why, of all the shows they created, "Carousel" was Rodgers and Hammerstein's personal favorite. [less-]

Even at a time when charismatic anti-heroes rule supreme -- especially on cable TV -- Macbeth stands apart. More underhanded than Frank Underwood, more cunning than Michael Corleone and more desperate than Walter White, the Scottish general-turned-king remains the most enthralling example of ambition run amok and of authentic talent corrupted one compromise at a time. Now the Annapolis Shakespeare Company presents a bold new production of Shakespeare's dark masterpiece. Set in a gloomy world of ghosts and witches, the tragedy's bloody cycle of corruption and betrayal is thrown into motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend.
