Tristan Layne Tapscott and Cari Downing (accompanied by Danny White) in The Last Five YearsI will admit that I had serious reservations prior to Wednesday night's performance of the Harrison Hilltop Theatre's The Last Five Years. As much as I enjoy Cari Downing's comedic stage work – I described how sensational she was in the Hilltop's I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change earlier this year, and it's worth repeating – I wasn’t so sure she was up to composer Jason Robert Brown’s romantic musical. And the same went for Tristan Layne Tapscott, who I think is fantastically funny in comedy roles, but hit-or-miss in his more serious efforts. Under the direction of David Turley, though, they present a unique take on this criss-crossed storyline that has its own sweetness.

Jesus Christ Superstar in rehearsalOdd as it may seem now, there actually was a period in the Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s history – a run of 12 shows, to be precise – in which the company didn’t produce any musicals whatsoever. Yet after staging a dozen plays between June 2008 and May 2009, co-founders Tristan Tapscott and Chris Walljasper chose to open the theatre’s second season with a production of Jonathan Larson’s rock musical tick ... tick ... BOOM!

Christina Myatt in GypsyAs if she hadn’t already proven so in the previous three hours of Friday’s Countryside Community Theatre performance, Christina Myatt left no doubt that she’s worthy of the larger-than-life role of Mama Rose with Gypsy’s final song, “Rose’s Turn.”
