That’s All Right Baby

It’s a wonder they don’t bring the house down. It rocks. It rolls. But it remains intact while four actors/singers/instrumentalists personify Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley as if there were no tomorrow. There’s only now. They wail. They stomp. They leap. They swing. They soar. They sing. They play. They come together as the Million Dollar Quartet, in Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux’s...

Spending Time with a Famous Couple

A comforting sense of intimacy fills the small room below Central Presbyterian Church. Upstairs, people will come to affirm what they believe.  Downstairs, Circle Theatre Artistic Director Doug Marr keeps believing that people will be interested in what he offers: good theatre performed with intelligence and polish. 

At 8-person dinner tables, you may commune with other people while you could partake of...

Dark Days in Dublin

Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre Company continues its mission of focusing on Irish culture in an earnest and respectable production of Sean O’Casey’s famed Juno and the Paycock.  Craig Lee’s excellently conceived set brings home the dreariness of life in these characters’ tenement. Filling the place with color, Joseph Miloni puts thoroughly dynamic character into “Joxer” Daly.

“Joxer” is hanger-on and buddy to...

Potential Chldren’s Theatre Magic

The wonderful old Rose Theater was full of eager children and doting parents at the opening performance of Brian Guehring and Stephanie Jacobson’s evocation of two Hans Christian Andersen tales. This is a new take, i.e  a world premiere, combining famous The Little Mermaid with more obscure The Grocer’s Goblin. For most of the 50 or so minutes puppets took center stage, offering a colorful array of eye candy much...

Another Wicked Witch

The Rose Theater has taken on the major task of trying to make the best of the musical Narnia derived from C. S. Lewis’ The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The original children’s novel comes thoroughly supplied with adventure, meaning and symbolic significance. But this version, laden with songs, defuses the potential. The result, done here or elsewhere, is bound to resemble many other musicals where...

Marley Unchained

You might think that a theatre piece called Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol would be some kind of a send-up of the Dickens classic. Or, if you’re in a humbug frame of mind, you might conclude that such a title too much implies the regularly unwrapped holiday package and you’d prefer to remain within your rooms, warming feet by the fire, sipping yourself into oblivion with thoroughly-laced hot toddies.

Indeed, my...
