W.B. Yeats loved words, too, though with less fierce theatricality. Mystic, mythical, and ritual-based, his dramas lived in some stylized faraway locale; they beg for directorial magic. The Irish Rep's Yeats Project—two multiple bills in full production, plus a host of readings—is a bold undertaking, but Charlotte Moore, who staged Program A's one-acts (The Countess Cathleen, The Cat and the Moon, On Baile's Strand), sticks pretty much to verbal clarity. Yeats's words provide such magic as there is; occasionally, a cast member—most often Patrick Fitzgerald—gives a line an extra fillip. One wishes for a little more.
