"What also courses unmistakably through “Shak...

"What also courses unmistakably through “Shakespeare in Love’’ is a sheer love of theater and the eccentric, egotistical, obsessive, theatrical people who make it." The Boston Globe's Don Aucoin raves about SpeakEasy Stage Company's Shakespeare in Love, now through February 10 at the Roberts Studio Theatre at the Calderwood Pavilion, here at the BCA!

    A lively, stylish 'Shakespeare in Love' at SpeakEasy - The Boston Globe
    "Shakespeare in Love'' actually revolves around two romances, not just one. At the center of Lee Hall's play, now receiving its New England premiere at SpeakEasy Stage Company, is the affair between the besotted Bard and a woman named Viola de Lesseps, who has disguised herself as a man so she can perform onstage.

Take a close look at last weekend's "dreamy, rainbow brite" Rainbow Collapse, created for BCA's Run of the Mills series by Anya Smolnikova and Jared Williams in this feature by Greg Cook on Wonderland: A Magazine of Arts and Cultures.

    In 'Rainbow Collapse,' Fearing Ecological Destruction, Dreaming A 'Utopian And Impossible' Future
    "Rainbow Collapse" -part of the "Run of the Mills" performance series at the Boston Center for the Arts-"is a piece about working in the gap between what we want and what we can do, or between the vision and the reality," says Anya Smolnikova, who developed the ecological-technological show with Jared Williams. "It's about reconnecting with something true and magical."
