Shakespeare at The Herberger
Shakespeare frequently wrote about dancing and music, but that Renaissance-y capering isn't the stuff of Center Dance Ensemble's Shakespeare at the Herberger, featuring "The Fateful Loves of Hamlet" and new dances inspired by The Tempest, The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream (the play with the ass' head!). Center Dance is Herberger Theater's resident modern dance company, so you'll see nicely toned instruments (bodies) and innovative interpretation through movement.
An abbreviated Lunch Time Theater version of the program takes place at 12:10 p.m. Thursday, March 5, with tickets priced at $6, and the full concert opens at 7:30 p.m. with admission at $14 to $28. Performances are at 222 East Monroe Street through Sunday, March 8. Get tickets at 602-252-8497 or www.herbergertheater.org. Julie Peterson
