The Tempest

4/10-5/4: Thu-Sat 8 PM, Sun 2 PM

In Shakespeare's Tempest, everyone's a slave. Banished from his high place as the Duke of Milan, the sorcerer Prospero now ticks off his days on an island with his daughter, Miranda. Prisoner to his own anger, he lashes out at all around him, not just Miranda but a shipwrecked band of nobles and even the island's creatures, one of whom, the disfigured Caliban, revolts. In Suitcase Shakespeare's Tempest, Caliban calls the shots. Adam McAleavy—who also created the show's fantastic puppetry—plays the demented islander with a humor and directness that makes you question who the show's real monster is. McAleavy's also responsible for the wicked adaptation, which recasts a conspirator of the evil Duke Antonio (the hysterical Ben Harpe) as a puppet lapdog. Need I say more? —Chloe Riley $20

The President

4/12-5/31: Fri-Sat and Mon 8 PM, Sun 7 PM

Whatever director Max Truax touches turns to expressionism, with every angular moment played at a quasi-nightmarish remove. It was a fitting approach for Büchner, Brecht, and Genet, but it overburdens Ferenc Molnar's 1930 farce. Molnar's premise is pure froth: bank president Norrison discovers that Lydia, the young, nymphomaniacal heiress under his protection, has secretly married communist cabdriver Tony, and Norrison’s got one hour to transform him into a corporate insider. Rather than making sense of the basics—like why Tony would go along with the plan, or why Norrison wields such influence—Truax flings incongruous characters into an abstract world where many but not all props and set pieces are mimed. The dubious concept confuses the story and inhibits the humor. —Justin Hayford

Festival of Flesh

Open run: first Sat of each month, 10 PM and midnight

Gothic illusionist and proud floor-length-leather-jacket owner Ron Fitzgerald emcees Arkham Noise Productions' burlesque show, which caters to a wide array of fetishes with an alternating lineup of about 100 performers—around a dozen acts on a given night, curated by producer/DJ Miss Ellie Noise. Audience members can watch the show from their bar stools; this month's range of fantasies included domination, flesh hooks, IKEA (DIY kink?), and bathing in public. Still, nearly every act was a striptease at heart, and followed a familiar trajectory: gloves to girdle to brassiere, and then an exuberant reveal. It felt more silly than sexy, and the only clothes remaining onstage at the end were the basketball jerseys that line the back wall of the bar. —Hannah Gold
