Center-Stage CraftThe ends of calendar years always bring with them a certain amount of reflection, and questions that we find ourselves quietly grappling with. “Did I achieve personal fulfillment and happiness?” “Were there people I improperly appreciated or unintentionally wronged?” “What are we going to do about the Reader’s annual year-in-theatre article now that Thom White has moved to Kentucky?!”

Linda Ruebling, Brant Peitersen, Tom Vaccaro, Anthony Natarelli, Mike Kelly, Mark Ruebling, Chris Tracy, Rocky Kampling, Aaron Lord, and Kyle Jecklin in Big Rock Candy ChristmasAt a time when current events make the world seem very dark and sick, the holidays remind us to reminisce with old friends, break out the carols, and bake a batch of Grandma's legendary cookies. One recipe to such a cruel world can be found in the District Theatre's current production Big Rock Candy Christmas. A sequel to last year's Big Rock Candy Mountain, this Christmas-flavored chapter brings back the same characters from the original with a new mission, new music, and even a few new faces.

Anthony Natarelli, Liv Lyman, Erin Platt, Sara Wegener, Nancy Teerlinck, Jason Platt, Jennifer Sondgeroth, David Miller, and Christopher Tracy in The Addams FamilyTaking The Addams Family as a sign, I’m excited about the District Theatre’s future in downtown Rock Island's former Argus building, and while there are still a few growing pains to overcome, the company is clearly off to a good start.

Courting Danger: "A Few Good Men," at the District Theatre through July 12

Tristan Tapscott, Sara Tubbs, and Jacob Kendall in A Few Good MenWith its ornate ceiling and fascinating, borderline-gaudy hanging light fixtures in the District Theatre's new home in the former Rock Island Argus building, A Few Good Men seems an appropriate inaugural production, in that the space looks like a courtroom – at least while you're looking up. Following the company's sometimes uncomfortable (for patrons) stint in its previous, rather cramped venue, this open area with the ceiling rising two stories above the floor is a much welcome relief, allowing director Lora Adams’ staging of Aaron Sorkin‘s courtroom drama to breathe in ways that, for the District Theatre, it otherwise couldn’t have.

Things Are Seldom What They Scheme: "The Merry Wives of Windsor," at Lincoln Park July 11 and 12

Bryan Woods, Bob Hanske, Michael Hill, and Andy Curtiss in The Merry Wives of WindsorGenesius Guild’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is a study in comedic styles, particularly in comparing the portrayals of Bob Hanske’s lothario Falstaff and Andy Curtiss’ hot-headed Ford. Hanske offers a vocally robust – and, thanks to costume designer Ellen Dixon, physically robust – performance that’s delightfully buffoonish in his mannerisms and goofball inflections. Curtiss, on the other hand, plays his part of the jealous husband whose wife is coveted by Falstaff almost without accentuating its humor, choosing instead to allow his fluctuating anger to carry the comedy. And both actors are hilarious in their roles, stealing the show every moment they’re on stage.
