Welcome the Bedlam Faction, the latest theatre company to be founded by veterans of UT Austin's Shakespeare at Winedale program, and its inaugural effort, Ben Jonson's Volpone, a tale of greed, conniving, status, and, ultimately, morality that Bedlam stages with a seeming insanity that befits its name but which is really quite smart, energetic, creative, and hilarious.

Requiem for Tesla
Local mavericks Rude Mechanicals have plundered biographies and scientific history to give us the whole story of maverick inventor Nikola Tesla, and their production Requiem for Tesla, with its unnervingly choreographed lights, arresting video, beautiful period costumes, original score on theremin, strange dance numbers, and working Tesla coil, literally crackles with current.

A Midsummer Night's Dream: Holy conceptual contortions, Batman!
In his Austin Shakespeare Festival staging of A Midsummer Night's Dream, director Robert Tolaro creates a fantasy world of superheroes with a strong hint of modern Chicago 'burb, that pulls up a bit short conceptually, but is still a fun, rambunctious evening.

Pride's Crossing: Shimmering Waters
Script-wise, Pride's Crossing is PBS-esque : one of those wistful period pieces about a lively old woman looking back on her privileged youth : but throw a bunch of charming actors into the mix and hip director Sarah Richardson, and you get a show happily at odds with this Masterpiece Theatre-worthy tale.
