(left to right, from the top) Tartuffe's Brianne Kinney, James Driscoll, Jessica Sheridan, Kitty Israel, Denise Yoder, Stephanie Moeller, Angetha Rathman, Jeb Makula, and Andy CurtissThere are so many smart line deliveries in the Prenzie Players’ Tartuffe that I could gush over each one here and still not have space for half of them. From Stephanie Moeller’s forceful proclamation “I’m timid!” to Jessica Sheridan’s delightfully wicked warning about being stuck with the unbearable title character “each day ... and night ... for life,” Friday’s performance had me cackling over and over again. I won’t, however, point to any more specific line interpretations, for fear of ruining the element of surprise. A large part of the production’s humor lies in hearing its words delivered in unexpected ways.

David Cabassa and Angela Rathman in The Taming of the ShrewIf, at any point, you find your mind wandering during director Jeff Coussens’ Genesius Guild presentation of The Taming of the Shrew – and trust me, that won’t happen often – snapping back to attention is easy: Just check out the reactions of the men watching the show from stage right. You’ll have no trouble spotting them, because one of the guys is drunk off his ass, and the other’s wearing a dress.

Considerably-Better-Than-Fair Verona: "Romeo & Juliet," at the Center for Living Arts through April 17

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.

Fantastic Voyage: "Pericles, Prince of Tyre," at St. Peter's Episcopal Church through Sunday, November 21

Jeb Makula and J.C. Luxton in Pericles: Prince of TyneI’ve enjoyed every Prenzie Players production I’ve seen to date, but perhaps none more so than Pericles, Prince of Tyre. That’s actually odd to say, since William Shakespeare’s tale of the world's luckiest unlucky prince – a seafarer who really should just avoid the sea altogether – wouldn’t necessarily be called “fun.” Director Andy Koski and his cast, however, manage to find the humor in the script and bring it to the forefront, embellishing it and even adding quips of their own, and elicited lots of laughs from Saturday night’s audience.

Sister Act: "Marvin's Room," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through April 25

Jackie Madunic and Angela Rathman in Marvin's RoomSaturday night's performance of Marvin's Room marks the first time I'd seen a Richmond Hill Players production. When previously invited to see one of their shows, I cited reasons not to attend, mostly balking at the seemingly long drive out to Geneseo. I spent much of Saturday's intermission chastising myself for not making the shorter-than-expected trip sooner.
