By Pat Craig, The Oakland Tribune, Calif. Jul. 14--Wild laughter launched Livermore Shakespeare Festival's opening night in its plush new digs at Concannon Vineyards. The company demonstrated an eagerness to bite the Bard that feeds it by starting the new season with the American debut of an updated version of the Reduced Shakespeare Company's spoof, "The Complete Works of William Shakespere (abridged) (revised)."

By MARISSA GREENBERG For the Journal Paul Rudnick's "I Hate Hamlet" is, unlike Shakespeare's "Hamlet," a comedy. Just as Shakespeare offers comic relief in the forms of Hamlet's bawdy jokes and the gravediggers' jeering social commentary, Rudnick tempers the ridiculous and the humorous with moments that are, if not tragic, considerably serious.

In possibly the biggest theater co-production the war-torn Balkans region has seen in some 20 years, Haris Pasovic is seeking to put "Hamlet" into a 21st Century setting.

The Hamlet (Hypoplectrus), is a grouping fish that is found mainly in coral reefs in the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, particularly around Florida and the Bahamas. Hamlets are simultaneous hermaphrodites (or synchronous hermaphrodites): They have both male and female sexual organs at the same time as an adult. They seem quite at ease mating in front of divers, allowing observations in the wild to occur readily. They do not practice self-fertilization, but when they find a mate, the...
