Center Stage's production of Shakespeare's "Pericles, Prince of Tyre" takes a strange play and makes it stranger.A work of disputed authorship, uneven poetry and little psychological depth, the play is essentially an adventure story, complete with shipwrecks, pirates, miracles and more than a few convenient coincidences.Director Irene Lewis enhances the mix with a heavy dose of surrealism. She has staged this magical mystery tour in the vast east end of the Head Theater on an abstract set by John M. Conklin with exaggerated lighting by Pat Collins.

Shakespeare's Pericles is part fairy tale and part myth, and director Mary Zimmerman takes those characteristics and runs with them. Zimmerman's enchanting production at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre treats this picaresque tale of treachery, tempests, love, loss, reunion and redemption like a fanciful children's story. She divides the narrator's role among many players, who read aloud from a book as if it were a child's storybook. She uses toy sailboats on sticks to represent a royal fleet.

If Shakespeare's career had ended with "Pericles," his reputation would have been a study in decline.But without the laboratory provided by this late, almost-never produced play, Shakespeare may never have gone on to write "Cymbeline," and then, in a final burst of glory, "The Winter's Tale" and "The Tempest" -- an artistic achievement comparable to Ted Williams' hitting a home run in his last time at bat.But the bad reputation of "Pericles" -- the first...

It's a mystery that has stumped doctors and historians for almost 2,500 years: What killed Pericles, the leading statesman of ancient Athens, and helped to crush one of the greatest cultures the world would ever see?You'd think the clues were all there. Historians were left with a detailed account of the symptoms that claimed not only Pericles but a quarter of the city's population in 429 B.C. -- fever, pustules, chest pain, and a thirst that drove crazed victims to leap into rain barrels.

Few directors would leap at the chance to stage Pericles, one of Shakespeare's more problematic plays. But few directors are like Mary Zimmerman. "What seems normal to me may not seem normal to someone else," acknowledges the 1998 MacArthur "genius" grant recipient. The Chicago-based director is making her area debut at Washington's Shakespeare Theatre, where Pericles begins performances Tuesday. Pericles is, quite literally, all over the place: the story of kings and queens, prostitutes and pirates spans many years, crosses borders and bounds along on the high seas.

For more than a century, the Greeks of Athens had it all -- power, prestige, wealth. Then, just as quickly, they lost it all, leaving the world one essential legacy -- the democratic principles upon which much of modern civilization is based. "The Greeks: Crucible of Civilization" focuses on a roughly 200-year period, from the birth of Cleisthenes in 570 B.C. to the death of Socrates in 399 B.C. While that represents only a portion of ancient Greek history -- the Olympics, for example, date back to 776 B.C. -- there's no disputing that the events of the period would change the course of world history.

Eyes and EarsI would like to thank the public safety guides and the clean sweep ambassadors who walk the streets of Baltimore City to provide a safer and more friendly environment for the people of Baltimore and the tourists who visit our city.Their positive presence on the 106 blocks in the core of downtown Baltimore adds a greater sense of security and helps make downtown a pleasant place to work and visit.The public safety guides are approachable and very friendly. They are the "eyes and ears" looking out for the safety of all who walk the street of Baltimore.

Pericles Lewnes thought it would be easy to film a documentary about card game con artists bilking people out of cash every day on the streets of New York. It wasn't."It became a monkey on my back," Mr. Lewnes, an Arnold filmmaker says in his movie, "Fast Game Fast Money: The Grifters of New York."But Mr. Lewnes tamed that monkey and produced a film that was named Best in Show in the Rosebud Awards at the Biograph Theater in Washington on April 10. The film was one of five winners chosen from 22 entries.

FOR MANY participants in the contemporary arts scene, the primary role of the theater is to indoctrinate its audience into the joys of socially acceptable thought through socially acceptable acting styles.If that is the proper role of the theater, Baltimore's Center Stage has succeeded admirably this year, because the seven dramas presented to season ticket holders have been both remarkably well-acted and politically correct. Some patrons believe, however, that a theater should have a broader artistic and aesthetic purpose.
