Stephanie Moeller in Romeo & JulietThere are moments of magic in the Prenzie Players’ Romeo & Juliet, beginning with the first words heard in the prologue: “Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene.” These lines are delivered in the midst of a sword fight that spreads across the acting space – the fighters freeze, ethereal music wafts in from above, and Adam Overberg delivers Shakespeare’s well-known introduction, setting the stage for this tale of ill-fated, star-crossed lovers. The moment is stunningly executed, and sets in motion an excitement for what’s to come.

Sara King, Kevin Grastorf (front seat), Adam Overberg, and Cari Downing (back seat) in I Love You, You're Perfect, Now ChangeI fall for Adam Overberg’s onstage charm with every new performance. He has a demeanor, a presence, that captivates me, and he proves his diversity as an actor over and over again. With the Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, though, he adds singing to the long list of talents he possesses, and while his voice may lack polish, Overberg’s vocals remain enthralling through his interpretations and comedic delivery.

Adam Overberg, Paul Workman, and Joseph Maubach in The Complete History of America (abridged)The Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s The Complete History of America (abridged) is moronic on the surface, yet has undertones of sharp wit. While Chris Walljasper’s direction makes the show play like a frat-boy presentation on the history of North America, there’s also an intelligence to the humor, which mixes pop-culture references – from Super Mario to Lady Gaga – with historical events from the past 50,000 years.

Students' Congress: "The Shape of Things," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through October 17

Maggie Woolley and Matt Mercer in The Shape of ThingsAuthor Neil LaBute is known, and respected, for pushing the envelope with his plays. The Richmond Hill Barn Theatre generally produces plays that are comparatively safe in theme and style. So it’s a somewhat surprising thing to see LaBute’s The Shape of Things on the barn-theatre stage – and, I think, a very good thing, too. Because while some of the play’s elements are offensive, its central themes of art, relationships, and what we're willing to do for love are well worth examining. And happily, they're examined here in a production that is also thoughtfully staged and performed.
