Sheri Olson, J. Adam Lounsberry, Ben Holmes, Sara Wegener, Paul Workman, and Jamie Bauschka in Dirty Rotten ScoundrelsThere’s nothing rotten about Quad City Music Guild’s current production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels; Thursday’s preview performance was delightfully wicked from beginning to end. There is, however, plenty that’s dirty in this musical stage adaptation of the 1988 film, which starred Michael Caine and Steve Martin. The raunchy humor is sharp and smart, including the plethora of usually groan-worthy double entendres, and it's all delivered remarkably well by director Greg Bouljon’s cast.

Whether you attend stage works sporadically or, like me, you saw 85 shows in the past year, anyone who enjoyed even one will understand that feeling of leaving a venue thinking, "Wow ... that was really good." I experienced that sensation numerous times this year, and while this list is hardly exhaustive, it'll hopefully give you an idea of just what you've been missing if you missed out on 2009's offerings.

Karl Hamilton, Kaci Scott, and Carl Hendin in Dirty Rotten ScoundrelsSome 20 minutes before the finale to the Timber Lake Playhouse's Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, you'll finally hear something that you hadn't heard once during the musical's first two hours: a legitimately sincere number. Granted, this romantic ballad is being sung by a practiced con man, and the object of his affection is a young woman from whom he's trying to swindle 50 grand, and he's only been hitting on her to prevent his rival from scoring first. But, hey, sincerity is sincerity, and besides, it's the only heartfelt moment you're gonna get.

Dave Adamick, Nikkieli Demone, Don Denton, Vaughn Irving, Hernando Umana, and Brad Hauskins I was really looking forward to the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse's production of The Full Monty, but that anticipation was nothing compared to how much I was looking forward to watching Friday's audience watch The Full Monty.

A Fully Satisfying "Monty": "The Full Monty" at the Timber Lake Playhouse

By the time the amateur male strippers perform their exuberant, baring-it-all finale in the Timber Lake Playhouse’s The Full Monty, it might take all your will to not leap from your seat and join them. The high spirits generated by this show are a little overwhelming; with the possible exception of the Clinton Area Showboat’s current production of Ruthless, The Full Monty is the best time I’ve had at the theatre in two months. It’s joyous, technically dexterous, thrillingly performed, and, best of all, absolutely fearless. (You’re aware of this by the end of the overture, when a bare-assed stripper, hounded by female groupies, races across the stage.)
