Bryan Woods, Sarah Hayes, and Diane Greenwood in Noises OffWhen I first learned that Geneseo’s Richmond Hill Barn Theatre was staging author Michael Frayn’s Tony Award-winning Noises Off this fall, I’ll admit that the news made me chuckle, and not just because the show is so funny.

Anna Tunnicliff, Neil Friberg, Bryan Woods, and Torey Baxa in The FrogsSince first experiencing one of Genesius Guild's end-of-season comedies two summers ago, I’ve eagerly anticipated playwright/director Don Wooten’s witty work each subsequent year. His sharp, humorous, sometimes biting rewrites of Aristophanes comedies abound with political, pop-culture, and theatre references at the local and national levels. And while I’ve not had the honor of being personally referenced in one of his jokes – at least not while I was present – this year’s The Frogs features hilariously pointed jabs at almost every theatre company in the Quad Cities area, with Saturday’s performance the funniest of the three annual Guild spoofs I’ve yet seen.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling BeeThe Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a delightfully entertaining musical comedy that I wouldn’t mind seeing over and over again, as Friday’s performance of director Tommy Iafrate’s production was funny, touching, and energetic, serving as an exceptional rendering of the musical’s charm, wit, humor, and high level of enjoyability.

Bye Bye Birdie at the Clinton Area Showboat TheatreAmong Bye Bye Birdie’s signature numbers is the show-tune staple “Put on a Happy Face,” and barring one intentionally, gloriously sour exception, the cast for the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s winning and energetic production of this Broadway warhorse has done just that.

After Ever After: "Into the Woods," at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre through June 24

Into the WoodsThe scenic design for the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s Into the Woods is deceptively simple – basically a half-dozen white drop curtains hanging ceiling to floor, with a few stone steps decorating the otherwise bare stage. But don’t be fooled: Like a rabbit being pulled from a hat, something truly magical emerges from this production’s minimalist-by-necessity façade.
