Erika Thomas, Susan Granet, Christopher Thomas, and Spencer Clark in The Music ManChristopher Thomas could sell me anything. On Thursday night, he was peddling the character of Harold Hill in a preview performance of Quad City Music Guild’s The Music Man, and Thomas plays the part with such bombastic charm – and just a hint of smarm – that despite knowing of the character’s swindling intentions, I was buying his Hill’s shtick hook, line, and sinker, right along with the good people of River City.

Erika and Christopher Thomas in The Music ManQuad City Music Guild’s new production of The Music Man – the Meredith Willson classic running August 5 through 14 – stars husband and wife Christopher and Erika Thomas as romantic leads Harold Hill and Marian Paroo. And just to be clear: Yes, the couple knows how close to nauseatingly adorable it is for them to be playing these roles opposite one another.

“I’m kind of calling this my nursing-home story,” says Erika with a laugh. “Like when our grandchildren come to visit, it’ll be, ‘You know, your grandfather and I were in Music Man once ... !’”

“And they’ll be, ‘Uh oh ... here comes that Music Man story again ... !’” counters Christopher, also laughing.

West Side StoryI love making lists. Love it. And I get an annual charge out of composing "10 best"s for the Reader based on my movie-going experiences: 10 Best Films, 10 Best Guilty Pleasures, 10 Best Action Blockbusters Based on a Pre-Existing
Toy ... .

So when I started thinking about my forthcoming Year in Theatre recap a few weeks ago, I thought it might make for a fun change of pace to compose "best" lists for area stage productions.

Jenny Winn, Christopher Thomas, and Sheri Hess in Into the Woods rehearsal So, fellow fans of the former Brew & View, there's good news and bad news:

The good news is that the building that housed this haven for independent releases (and those who love them) will once again be open for business.

The bad news is that it won't be screening independent movies. Or, for that matter, movies of any kind.

Yet while the hearts of film lovers might break, those of theatre lovers should rejoice, as Derek Bertelsen and Tyson Danner realize a live-entertainment dream with the August 10 unveiling of the Green Room, their new theatrical venue at 1611 Second Avenue in the District of Rock Island.
