“Macbeth,” as brought to us by Theatre Banshee in Burbank, is a thrilling, juicy tale of power, ambition, guilt and back-stabbing. Sounds like a season finale episode of “Dynasty” but it’s much, much more. This one has to do with kings and ancient Celtic supernatural lore. This one is written by a man commonly believed to be the world’s greatest dramatist. And this one features living, breathing, fighting, spitting actors. Ah, live Shakespeare done well!

GLENDALE — Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1963 speech — on Tuesday, they culminate with the swearing in of Barack Obama as the nation’s first black president. The historic moment Tuesday on the steps of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., brings an added weight to King’s famous “I have a dream” speech and the national holiday that honors his life of civil rights activism.

Filmed entirely in the Czech Republic, ?I Served the King of England? is an overly long, artsy reminiscence of a hotel waiter who has just been released from incarceration after serving a lengthy sentence as a political prisoner. The film is the work of writer/director Jirí Menzel, whose 1968 classic ?Closely Watched Trains? delighted audiences the world over with its freshness and clever charm. This production, although entertaining for the most part, does not have the impact of the earlier film, perhaps because it lacks directness and simplicity.

Visiting the Norwegian Heritage Faire Saturday seemed like the perfect outing for Marilyn Nave, a Palmdale resident who only recently discovered she is a fourth-generation Norwegian. Weeks ago Nave, who trekked 80 miles to attend the program at Salem Lutheran Church, discovered documents showing that her great-great-great-grandparents came to this country from Norway and was elated when she found out about the festival. “I just had to come and find out more,” she said, as her 8-year-old son learned about Vikings at one of 17 tables that showcased many sectors of Scandinavian culture.
