Writer-director Jonas Oppenheim’s whimsical reimagining of Shakespeare’s play as a silent movie (music composed and performed by Josh Senick) comes packed with theatrical imagination and a robust sense of humor. It also raises the question of what body language can express, and in so doing just grazes the surface of Shakespeare’s multitextured play. Sacred Fools Theatre Company, 660 N. Heliotrope Drive, Hollywood; Fri.-Sat., 8 p.m. (added perf Thursday, Dec. 17, 8 p.m.); through December 17. (310) 281-8337.
