Kriss Doss, Aaron Brakefield, Christian Chambers, Daniella Dalli, Livvy Marcus, and Jonathan Young in Next to NormalThursday’s performance of Next to Normal didn’t appear as well-attended as the rest of the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s opening nights this summer. Yet while this musical trip through a family’s struggle with the mother’s mental issues may not be as familiar as a Cats or Steel Magnolias, this isn’t a piece to miss. The songs by Tom Kitt and book by Brian Yorkey are powerful testimonies to the reality of mental illness for those who suffer from it, and those who suffer through it alongside a loved one.

Dolores Sierra in CatsOne of the biggest stars of Quad City Music Guild’s take on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats never appears on stage, though her mark is rarely invisible the entire time, as designer Sara Wegener is responsible for the costumes, makeup, and wigs worn by the musical's cast of felines. Obviously drawing inspiration from the original West End and Broadway productions, it’s a bit of a shame that the intricacy in her makeup, in particular, isn’t fully discernible from the audience, because the detail in her work is exceptional. Adding her spiked-fur wigs with plush fabric ears, and her bodysuits and loose shirts and pants colored to look like various cat coats, Wegener's contributions are award-worthy.

Livvy Marcus, Jonathan Young, Bailey Jordan Reeves, and Christian Chambers in My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank SinatraThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s My Way: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra is filled with beautiful vocals from beginning to end, as Christian Chambers, Livvy Marcus, Jonathan Young, and Bailey Jordan Reeves sing their way through 55 of Sinatra’s songs. Backed by a three-piece band under the lead of musical director Matt Bean, who also plays piano, this production covering the singer’s hits – along with a few facts about his life thrown in here and there – sounds sensational, and is a true delight for the ears.

Natalie Fisher in CatsI struggle with where to begin in praising director Matthew Teague Miller’s Cats at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre, simply because there’s so much to praise.
