Don't Move!: "Love Thy Neighbor," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through August 25

Jim Strauss, Jan Golz, and Stacy McKean Herrick in Love Thy NeighborThe sharp wit of playwright Gary Ray Stapp’s dialogue goes a long way to overcome the occasional humorless spots in the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's production of Love Thy Neighbor. And when the cast is delivering Stapp’s most amusing banter, director Eugenia Giebel’s presentation titillates sometimes to the point of tears, particularly as Jan Golz’s self-important, riff-raff-hating busybody Leona Crump squares off against Diane Greenwood’s dolled-up, somewhat pompous Tupperware and Avon saleswoman Ava. The two create sparks of entertaining disdain for each other, and best suggest the overall tone Stapp apparently intended for his play.

Farce of Habit: "Noises Off," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through October 14

David Lane, Molly McLaughlin, and Stan Weimer in Noises OffAs much as I love theatre-in-the-round, I recognize that not all plays work in a 360-degree environment. Take, for instance, Noises Off, the current offering at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre. A farcical comedy about the staging of a play (within the play) titled Nothing On, the show's second act offers, essentially, a view of the first act’s goings-on seen from backstage, and the production’s set is typically turned 180 degrees during the intermission to allow for that behind-the-scenes look. Consequently, prior to Thursday's performance at the Barn, I was baffled as to how director Jalayne Riewerts would pull off, in the round, this production of author Michael Frayn’s farce. She does it, it turns out, by not staging the piece in the round.

Will and Grace Notes: “A Turn for the Nurse,” at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through July 18

Cory Holbrook and Alex Klimkewicz in A Turn for the NurseOne of Joe DePauw's smartest directorial choices for the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's A Turn for the Nurse was to avoid camp. His cast doesn't play the crime farce for laughs and, as a result, may get more of them than they otherwise might've; to be sure, Saturday's audience was offering up laughter aplenty throughout the performance.

Romper Room: "Funny Valentines," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through June 13

Stacy McKean Herrick, Nathan Johnson, Kady Patterson, Archie Williams, and Jackie Skiles in Funny ValentinesCharacter confusion makes for an enjoyable, lighthearted comedy in Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's current summer offering, Funny Valentines. And though the opening-night performance had a slow and somewhat shaky start in terms of line deliveries, the actors quickly settled into their roles and let their characters' quirks shine through.

Take Five(s): Ensembles, Pairings, Debuts, Technical Achievements, Shockers, and Accidents

Tom Walljasper, Sandra D Rivera, Tristan Layne Tapscott, and Erin Dickerson in Are We There Yet Five Extraordinary Ensembles

An actor friend of mine says he always wants to be the worst performer in everything he's in, because if the rest of the cast is doing stronger work than he is, that means the show is in really, really good shape. With that in mind, any actor worth his or her salt would be thrilled to be the worst performer among these five ensembles.
