Chris Causer, Brad Hauskins, Janos Horvath, Sarah Hayes, Nikki Savitt, and Antoinette Holman in How I Became a PirateWhile I’ve loved every children’s production I’ve reviewed at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse, How I Became a Pirate marks the first in which I wish I had the soundtrack to enjoy with my partner’s nine-year old daughter Madison on our way to and from school each day. With music and lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman (both of whom also wrote the musical’s book), the songs are worth revisiting for their singable melodies and enjoyable styles, particularly the calypso numbers and a speedy, staccato, complexly rhymed nod to Gilbert & Sullivan’s “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General.” After Saturday's performance of the show, in fact, Madison and I were singing lyrics from several of the songs on our car ride home, which I hope suggests how fun and memorable they are.

Chris Causer and Bryan Tank in HairUnder no circumstances would I publicly suggest that you indulge in mind-altering substances before seeing the District Theatre’s Hair. I would, however, recommend that you ask for a hit of whatever actor Chris Causer is high on – even if it’s just the exhilaration of performing – because, clearly, its side effects include having, and giving, the time of your life.

It’s Not Easy Being Teen: "bare," at the Center for Living Arts through February 16

Becca Meumann and Doug Johnson in barePassion counts for a lot in drama, and sincerity counts for a lot plus, and both qualities are in welcome abundance in the Center for Living Arts’ presentation of the adolescent-angst musical bare. Another theatrical commitment kept me away during opening weekend, but if you haven’t yet caught up with the show, I heartily recommend taking advantage of its three-weekend run; you could conceivably ask for a stronger production, but only a complete boor would dare ask for a more heartfelt one, or one that exuded more enthusiasm and feeling from its clearly, beautifully invested participants.

Junie’s Bustin’ Out All Over: “Junie B. Jones & a Little Monkey Business,” at the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse through May 17

Sunshine Ramsey and Phillip Johnny Bob in Junie B. Jones & a Little Monkey BusinessI'm not sure where Barbara Park got the inspiration for her literary heroine Junie B. Jones, the adorable kindergarten heroine/hellion of the author's series of wildly popular children's books. But after seeing the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse's presentation of Junie B. Jones & a Little Monkey Business, I have a pretty firm theory: Park swiped the characterization from kindergarten-era home movies taken of actress Sunshine Ramsey.
