There's a glut of Shakespeare around at the moment, with two versions of Macbeth, Frantic Assembly's Othello, a burlesque children's take based on a Midsummer Night's Dream, and this take on The Taming of The Shrew. Not that we can ever have too much of the bard, or that's what I think, especially when we have traditional performances alongside hilarious, innovative, iconoclastic, free-flying stagings like this one. The Taming of The Shrew is one of Shakespeare's plays that can stand...

By Lisa Millegan, The Modesto Bee, Calif. Jul. 11--"Othello," Shakespeare's tale of destructive jealousy, only tells part of the story -- if you ask Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, anyway. Vogel ("How I Learned to Drive,""The Baltimore Waltz") offers a feminist view with "Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief." In this version, which will be staged by Prospect Theater Project in Modesto, Othello's wife Desdemona really is unfaithful and has befriended Bianca, a popular prostitute in...

By Nancy Brokaw Snap, crackle, pop! "The Taming of the Shrew" at the Illinois Shakespeare Festival snaps with sharp direction, crackles with laughter and pops with stunning theatrical design. The plot revolves around the wooing and marriage of two wealthy sisters - fiery Katharina ("Kate") and her straight-A type sister Bianca. Kate is pursued and ostensibly "tamed" by Petruchio. Bianca, through twists, turns, disguises and a hilarious Latin lesson, ends up with earnest Lucentio. All...

By Robert Trussell, The Kansas City Star, Mo. Jun. 27--It's always refreshing to encounter a piece of audacious theater that actually works. Paula Vogel's "Desdemona, a Play About a Handkerchief" is plenty audacious but director John Rensenhouse and three talented actresses ratchet up the audacity quotient significantly in the first production of the summer from Actors Theatre KC. Vogel's piece is basically a feminist response to Shakespeare's tragedy. She speculates on the kind of...

By Robert Trussell, The Kansas City Star, Mo. Jun. 22--John Rensenhouse wants audiences to see acting at its best -- unencumbered and pure. To prove the point, Rensenhouse is directing a no-frills production of "Desdemona, a Play About a Handkerchief," the first show this summer from Actors Theatre KC. Paula Vogel's feminist response to "Othello" is a three-character study of the different ways women seek at least minimal power in a restrictive, male-dominated culture. Desdemona...

By The Kansas City Star, Mo. Jun. 23--I might as well just say it: You owe it to yourself to get down to Southmoreland Park to see the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival production of "Othello." And there's one overriding reason: Damon Gupton's extraordinary performance in the title role. Shakespeare's tale of jealousy, passion and treachery receives a solid production with good actors, sumptuous costumes and an interesting use of music. But Gupton's electrifying embodiment of the...

humgruffin
  • A terrible or repulsive person.
Regarding the etymology of 'humgruffin,' the OED says (rather unhelpfully) that it's a 'made-up word.' We might guess that 'hum' comes from 'humbug' or possibly 'hum' meaning 'a disagreeable smell,' while 'gruffin' could be a combination of 'gruff' and 'griffin.'
