"So," you might be asking, “why is the movie guy writing about theatre?” A fair question. I love theatre. A lot. I was a theatre major in college and, until recently, have spent the past decade employed at Rock Island’s Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse, where I’ve learned about and appreciated this great art form all the more.

When I was in seventh grade, my chorus class took a charter bus up to Chicago to see Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. From a row near the back of the theatre, I watched the vibrant speck that was Donnie Osmond belt out the tunes “Close Every Door” and “Joseph’s Coat.” On the return trip home, while the chaperone mothers murmured in fascination over the dark-haired leading man, we chorus students amused ourselves with a Joseph sing-along. The music was just that unforgettable and appealing, even to our usually unimpressionable teenage minds.

Hey you cats, listen up. I saw a show at Circa ’21 that’s hoppin’ and swingin’ – like being inside a jukebox. Smokey Joe’s Café is where all the cool Daddy-O’s and neighborhood gals are dancing to music from the days of the zoot suit up to 1960s love songs. If you’re expecting a plot line, a bit of spoken dialogue, you kids won’t get it. This musical revue is purely fun. It involves no setup or explanation, and simply celebrates music from days gone by.

"Bob" Not to Be Taken Lightly, Not to Be Missed: "Almighty Bob" at Circa '21

Though senior citizens, religion, sex, love, and the timely battle between good and evil are all poked fun at in Circa ’21’s current show, playgoers should be prepared to see more than just a lighthearted comedy. Almighty Bob is quite a funny play, but it also lifts the veil from the element that is our ever-present fear – death – and gives us the playwright’s take on how life and death work.
