Kaitlyn Casanova and Sara Tubbs in Fancy Nancy: The MusicalFrankly, I was surprised to see so many boys in attendance at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s Tuesday performance of Fancy Nancy: The Musical. Based on Jane O’Connor’s book Fancy Nancy & the Mermaid Ballet, the play would, I thought, appeal more obviously to girls, and prior to the opening of the (proverbial) curtain, I expected the lads populating my seat section to be disappointed. Fortunately, though, there’s plenty of content here that appeals to both girls and boys, and judging by the young males' positive reactions, they were delighted by the show – as was I.

Kaitlyn Casanova, Deborah Kennedy, Tom Walljasper, Rachelle Walljasper, and Kay Francis in The Church Basement Ladies in The Last Potluck SupperThe fifth time is apparently the charm for writer Greta Grosch and composer/lyricist Drew Jansen, as the final installment in the Church Basement Ladies series is, for me, the most cohesive and amusing from beginning to end. Primarily, this is because there’s a clear plot that ties together the story as, through flashbacks, we learn about the founding of the show's rural-Minnesota church, the initial introduction of the titular ladies to their basement kitchen, and the eventual disbanding of the congregation. This musical is the history of the ladies’ Lutheran church in its entirety, a thread that pulls together the proceedings in a beautiful way.

ensemble members in Les MisérablesI’m on record stating that I was “Les Mis-ed out” after seeing three local productions of Les Misérables, and facing a fourth, over a year-and-a-half span. Yet after attending the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s version on Friday, my love for the material is renewed, as director Jerry Jay Cranford’s staging adds intimacy while still possessing the grandeur of composers Alain Boublil’s and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s musical masterpiece.
