Are we in the midst of a mini-Shakespeare festival? The area is currently enjoying two innovative productions of works by the Bard: Compass Rose Theater's "Romeo and Juliet" — reviewed here last week — and Annapolis Shakespeare Company's "Hamlet," now playing at Bowie Playhouse. Director Sally Boyett boldly delves into the psyche of Hamlet to accomplish a nearly impossible feat: bringing suspense to this much-told tale of the melancholy Danish prince. Boyett places the character in the 21st century, confronting the mystery of his father's death and his anguish over his mother's hasty marriage to Claudius, the king's brother and Hamlet's uncle.

It is most difficult to come to terms with the passing of Philip Seymour Hoffman ( "A fatal addiction," Feb. 3). Mr. Hoffman was one of our miracles. All those who admired him were enriched by his prodigious talent, and his tragic death is a great loss to American art and culture. In his instructions to the actors, Hamlet tells them " to hold, as 'twere, the mirror up to nature. " No one in our time did that better than Philip Seymour Hoffman. His death brings to mind the final lines of Stephen Spender's poem "I Think Continually of Those Who Were Truly Great:" Born of the sun they traveled a short while towards the sun/ And left the vivid air signed with their honor.

President Barack Obama, in a sea of foreign policy troubles, accepted his leadership responsibilities in a CNN interview last week while lamenting the complexity of these challenges. He noted the old Harry Truman dictum that "the buck stops" in the Oval Office and asserted U.S. power and influence in the world must be "in our long-term national interests. " He mentioned both in the context of the developing civil wars in Egypt and Syria and growing calls for American intervention.

Just beyond their green pasture, something special has the attention of horses Vogue, Pagan and Brisk and their pony buddy Lotto. Workmen are putting the finishing touches on an array of solar panels, so that on this steamy summer day, Burleigh Manor Animal Sanctuary and Eco-Retreat goes off the grid. The electric meter has indeed stopped spinning, but that is likely the only thing that has ceased activity there since summer 2012, when the 10.5-acre Ellicott City property cemented its status as a nonprofit with a mission of providing care, a safe haven and a home for unwanted, neglected and abused livestock.

If you want to get folks fired up about Renaissance theater, poking fun at William Shakespeare is one way to do it. The Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is doing that now with the second half of its ninth summer season, the parody "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)," written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer and Jess Borgeson. The Bard, to be sure, did not pen the abridged "Complete Works. " Former founding members of the Reduced Shakespeare Company wrote and performed this script for the first time at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 1987.

Although a substantial success for several decades after its 1868 premiere, the grand opera version of "Hamlet" by Ambroise Thomas fell into neglect, even in the composer's home country of France. To paraphrase one of Hamlet's lines from the Shakespeare original: How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable seemed all the uses of this opera. But recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in Thomas' "Hamlet" on both sides of the Atlantic. A couple of months ago, the piece returned to the stage of New York's Metropolitan Opera after an absence of 113 years.

The Naval Academy's Mahan Hall rocked with laughter last weekend as the midshipmen of the Masqueraders displayed their comedic mastery in Lee Blessing's "Fortinbras." This 1991 political satire, which ran for two weekends, picks up where Shakespeare's "Hamlet" leaves off. The play opens with the mortally wounded Hamlet willing his kingdom to the prince Fortinbras and commanding his friend Horatio to relate his story to the world. Soon after Hamlet dies, Fortinbras arrives to find several expired royals lying about in need of disposal.
