Guilt, anger, revenge. Riotous hilarity, mortal enemies, Falstaff bigger than life, Prince Hal in a hoody. Yes, it’s “Henry IV, Part One” at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s intimate Thomas Theatre, to be followed in the summer by “Part Two.”

As directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz, Shakespeare’s great history play, peppered with surprises, is staged in the round and set in modern times. We can almost reach out and touch the actors, and the actors certainly touch us with their electrifying emotions.

Author Henry Alley’s new book is The Dahlia Field, which collects fourteen short stories exploring the complex and nuanced lives of gay male characters. 

The Slants, an Asian-American band from Portland, were blocked from trademarking their name because it was deemed racially disparaging. The case reached the US Supreme Court in January, and awaits resolution. The Slants are touring behind their new EP, The Band Who Must Not Be Named, and will appear in Eugene at the Black Forest on Saturday, April 1st.

If you wake up each morning worried about the world, relief is available at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. “Shakespeare in Love,” a stage adaptation of the award-winning 1998 film, will dazzle you with raucous wit, inspired bedlam, pleasing music and sumptuous costumes.

In conjunction with the exhibition Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, the UO Museum of Natural and Cultural History presents “Bowls Around Town: Eugene, OR” in which people can check out a handmade ceramic bowl from artist Michael J. Strand, along with a digital camera.

There’s a new non-profit in town-- but by design-- it won’t stick around.  Volunteers on Wheels is made up of people who travel from place to place in two brightly painted school buses. They find volunteer projects in every town they visit. As KLCC’s Tiffany Eckert reports, this mobile non-profit has already logged 2,000 collective hours helping out in and around Eugene.
