John VanDeWoestyne, Christopher Tracy, Mark Ruebling, Bryan Tank, Brian Nelson, and Paul Workman in CompanyAt the start of the intermission to Friday night’s District Theatre performance of Company, my partner turned to me and said, “I don’t remember this show being that funny.” He was right, because director David Turley accentuates the funny parts in this musical by composer Stephen Sondheim and writer George Furth. He does so, however, with subtle nudges and winks that almost cross over into silliness but don't, and that keep the production from sinking into sappy sentimentality.

My Kind of Show, "Chicago" Is: "Chicago," at the District Theatre through October 30

Christina Myatt and Kelly Lohrenz in ChicagoI really like Chicago. Its tuneful score, uniquely vaudevillian presentation, and delightfully naughty nature make it one of my favorite stage musicals. There’s one number in the show, however, that tops them all for me: “Cell Block Tango,” which is sexy, fun, and what I consider the benchmark for the overall production. And on Friday night, my entertainment needs would’ve been met, and then some, had the District Theatre’s production actually ended after this number, even thought it’s only the fourth song in the piece.

So-o-omewhe-e-ere, Over in Eldridge... .: "The Wizard of Oz," at North Scott High School through July 31

Mary Beth Riewerts' Glinda and the Munchkin actors in The Wizard of OzAs enjoyable as Countryside Community Theatre’s The Wizard of Oz is, the most thrilling part is this: The witches fly. While L. Frank Baum's familiar story of the Kansas girl who’s blown to the land of Oz by a tornado has its fill of magic, Countryside adds some magic of its own by making its witches (and a flying monkey) airborne. It's a special touch to a show that, during Friday’s opening-night performance, proved to be a gratifying evening's diversion – if a long one, running three hours from beginning to end.

Christina Myatt in GypsyAs if she hadn’t already proven so in the previous three hours of Friday’s Countryside Community Theatre performance, Christina Myatt left no doubt that she’s worthy of the larger-than-life role of Mama Rose with Gypsy’s final song, “Rose’s Turn.”
