Vanguard University offers a dynamic, passionate and visceral production of Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet. " Director Susan Berkompas has set her concept of this classic tragedy in the here and now. Her vision of a "modern day, industrial Verona" features tattooed gang bangers in both the Capulet and Montague camps. The seething antagonism between the two families (the reason for the feud is not provided) pervades the Vanguard production and often overshadows the forbidden romance at the play's core.

Claudia Figueroa After nearly a decade's absence, audiences will catch a glimpse of history when the Bolshoi Ballet makes its debut next week at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. Even though the Bolshoi is no stranger to Southern California, this tour marks the 10-year anniversary of its last national tour of the United States. The company's performance at the center is the last stop on a five-city tour, which began as a sold-out run at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, then to Chicago, Seattle and the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion in Los Angeles.

Tom Titus There's a three-piece rock group on a bandstand marked with graffiti and three semi-soul sisters belting out Motown tunes, so playgoers at UC Irvine's "Romeo and Juliet" might initially think they've wandered into the wrong venue. Before you check your ticket stubs, rest assured that you're in the right place. The UC Irvine production of Shakespeare's classic tragedy may strike a few modern chords -- such as the street scene music from "West Side Story" when the Capulets and Montagues square off as the play opens -- but purists needn't wince.

Local stage productions on both the community theater and collegiate levels proved impressive during 2011, with an imaginative musical and a pair of modern classic dramas leading the way. At the Costa Mesa Playhouse, the 1950s flavored musical "Forever Plaid," directed by Stephen Husley, proved to be the theater's most impressive offering of the year. The Newport Theatre Arts Center set the pace with a strong, involving revival of Arthur Miller's postwar drama "All My Sons," directed by David Colley.

At Costa Mesa's Vanguard University of Southern California, the upcoming theater season will be marked by one major factor — maturity. All five plays to be performed at the school's Lyceum Theater in 2010-11 fit quite comfortably into the "oldies" category insofar as their original conceptions are concerned. A few are updated versions of vintage plot lines. Of course, the summer season still is upon us as Vanguard's professional arm, the American Coast Theater Co., winds up its third program.

Deep in the heart of Texas lies the state’s third-smallest town of Tuna, population 287, where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. Creators Jaston Williams, Joe Sears and Ed Howard established “Greater Tuna” back in 1981 and have been touring it and its three sequels around the country ever since, with Howard directing and Williams and Sears the only cast members, playing multiple roles. Finally, the elusive rights to the comedy have been released and the American Coast Theater Company has grabbed them.
