If you’re looking for a season that embraces the classics—the Greeks, Shakespeare, Shaw, Chekhov, and Ibsen—you’re sure to become a fan of Quintessence, located in Mount Airy in a wonderful old movie theater that the company imaginatively reconfigures for each project. It’s little short of extraordinary what artistic director Alex Burns and his fellow artists accomplish with often slender means—including, not long ago, a riveting traversal of a play often thought to be all but unproducible: Eugene O’Neill’s Mourning Becomes Electra.
