Circa ’21’s Winnie the Pooh at The Rocket through July 23

 

At the opening-day performance of Winnie the Pooh, the air was already so festive – their doors may be temporarily closed, but the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse is still in business! – that the show was the recipient of enormous goodwill even before it began. Balloons decorated the street, the Rocket Theatre was alive with the noise of excited young uns, the parents seemed in surprisingly good moods … it was a pretty sweet sight. If you have as much fondness for Circa ’21 as I do – and I know some of you do, ’cause I’ve seen you there … – the atmosphere alone would have made Winnie the Pooh worthwhile.

Few stage sights are as thrilling as a cast of genuinely hungry actors, especially when they have genuinely meaty material to tear into. My Verona Productions’ Closer is a biting, at times painful, piece, yet it’s suffused with joy; the actors seem to be relishing the opportunity to verbally claw, scrape, and expose (often self-inflicted) wounds.

2005's Alternative Oscars: The Shoulda-Been Contenders

After the announcement of last year’s Oscar nominations, in which the Academy made almost shockingly inspired choices across the board, this year’s slate of nominees was bound to be a more predictable lot; barring a few minor surprises – the director and screenplay nods for Mike Leigh’s Vera Drake (still unseen by me) chief among them – voters opted for traditional, safe choices in 2004, especially among the squarer-than-usual Best Picture contenders.

Was I feeling especially sensitive in 2004, or were the year’s most memorable cinematic works, coincidentally, the most unabashedly romantic ones? It could certainly be me – the only (fictional) televised event that moved me to tears was the unlikely but enormously satisfying kiss between Martin Freeman’s Tim and Lucy Davis’ Dawn on The Office Special.
