The murder conspiracy that lies at the heart of Peter Shaffer's 1979 drama—that rival composer Antonio Salieri was responsible for Mozart's death—is fiction, but it still makes for great theater. Especially when it's presented with as much intelligence and fire as it is in Mark Richard's staging for Oak Park Festival Theatre. Directing again after a long hiatus, Richard has crafted a graceful, powerful production that artfully balances both the emotional and intellectual sides of Shaffer's script, and Kevin Theis and Chris Daley expertly bring the lead antagonists to life. Theis is particularly fine as Salieri, embodying all that's dark and bright in this deeply conflicted character. —Jack Helbig
