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.

The Prenzie Players are so serious about presenting innovative interpretations of Shakespeare’s scripts, they promise audience members “won’t forget our shows, ever.” Pretty lofty standards for a small group of Quad Cities actors who hold performances in rented found spaces (currently the Rock Island Housing Authority building) and use minimal props, costumes, staging, and production.

Sean Leary is sticking to basics. The author and producer of the innovative Your Favorite Band believes – despite the unique combinations of film, theatre, and music media used during the performances – that “a good story will always be the key to a successful show. ” We’ll see whether he followed this maxim and how local audiences respond to his part-live-theatre, part-film show when Your Favorite Band starts a two-week run August 5 at ComedySportz.
