David Turley and Creighton D. Olsen in Next FallA year-and-a-half after enjoying his performance in New Ground Theatre’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane, I am glad to see David Turley on a Quad Cities stage again in the company's Next Fall. It was Turley's portrayals of John Hinckley in the Green Room Theatre’s 2008 Assassins and William Barfee in the Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s 2010 The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee that initially endeared me to his comedic deliveries. And I’m grateful to see him employ his skills as this new play's 40-year-old gay atheist Adam, a character performed with more subtlety than those aforementioned roles, but one that still employs Turley's amusing brand of dry, sarcastic, slightly dark humor.

Jared Svoboda, Tracy Pelzer-Timm, Pat Flaherty, and Susan Perrin-Sallak in Other Desert CitiesWhile leaving Friday’s performance of Other Desert Cities, a friend told me that he thought it was the best play he’d seen by New Ground Theatre, and I agreed that, if not the best, it is at least among the best productions by the local company. Director David Turley’s staging of playwright Jon Robin Baitz’s smart, realistic dialogue and intriguing storyline has a tremendous palpability to it, both in the family dynamics of those on-stage and in the tensions and emotions they feel.

the Les Miserables ensembleLes Misérables is an epic musical, and Countryside Community Theatre should be commended for its noble effort in staging the multi-layered, much-loved piece by composer Claude-Michel Schönberg and lyricist Herbert Kretzmer. Director David Turley and his cast treat the material with the respect it deserves. Friday night’s performance, however, was still riddled with problems, many of them of a technical nature.

Countryside Community Theatre presents Les Miserables“You know, it’s been interesting,” says Christina Myatt, president of the board of directors for the Eldridge-based Countryside Community Theatre (CCT). “Because we wanted to do something big for our 30th anniversary, and this is definitely something big. But when people hear what we’re actually doing, they either say, ‘That’s really great!’ or they say, ‘You people are insane.’”

Ire-Land: "The Beauty Queen of Leenane," at the Village Theatre through October 7

Melissa Anderson Clark, Erik Finch, and Susan Perrin-Sallak in The Beauty Queen of LeenaneThe Irish accents are so good in New Ground Theatre’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane that, during Friday night’s performance, it actually took me a while to understand the actors – particularly Susan Perrin-Sallak and Melissa Anderson Clark, who play the mother and daughter at the center of the play. It took me about as long to also understand the reason playwright Martin McDonagh’s work has won so many awards, as I found the story a bit slow and dull at first, though it gradually built to a punch that I didn’t see coming despite (as I recognized in hindsight) it being clearly foreshadowed.
