EDGAR ALLAN POE gets the Zombie Joe treatment in "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Bells." This seamless exercise in mock-macabre modernism from Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre Group is a model of barebones ingenuity. Since 1992, garage impresario Zombie Joe has bombarded the San Fernando Valley with outre fare. "Tell-Tale Heart" raises the mind-bending bar. Poe's classic short story of homicidal guilt propels an eerily hilarious display that lasts barely an hour.

"The Taming of the Shrew," now on the Festival Stage at the Globe Theatres, is a raucous, stylish, funny froth of gender combat that shoots off sexual sparks like a summer lightning storm. Move over, Liz and Dick. Elizabeth Heflin as the razor-tongued Katherine and Jeffrey Nordling as the "mad-brained rudesby" Petruchio are perfectly matched as the high-octane couple whose wooing, wedding and bedding is the heart of "Shrew."

Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts are famous for their infectious smiles. John Krasinski, the actor who plays corn-fed paper salesman Jim Halpert on NBC's "The Office," is famous for his elastic face, a mug so fluid it launched a thousand clips on YouTube. In fan montage after montage: See Jim smirk by the water cooler, watch Jim grimace in a company meeting or roll his eyes behind cubicle nerd Dwight Schrute's (Rainn Wilson) back. One can only wonder just how many expressions Krasinski has in him.
