Susan Perrin-Sallak, Gregory Braid, and Patti Flaherty in Arsenic & Old LaceI won’t lie: I left the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s January 5 preview performance of Arsenic & Old Lace a little creeped out. This show could be titled The Original American Horror Story, although a version with a light seasoning of laughter, and director Donna Weeks did an especially nice job of casting the show's eccentric characters that brought us into its world of homicide and pleasantries.

Ashley Hoskins, Lisa Kahn, and Sarah Ade Wallace in The Red Velvet Cake WarTwo of the things I miss most about reviewing theatre with greater frequency are raving about area artists whose talents I’m quite familiar with, and raving about area artists whose talents are brand-spanking-new to me. Happily, regarding the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s The Red Velvet Cake War, I get to do both. And that’s especially gratifying because one of the things I absolutely do not miss is explaining why certain well-meaning, lighthearted endeavors designed solely to entertain simply don’t work for me, and it looks like I have to do that, too.

Chauffeur Show: "Driving Miss Daisy," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through May 17

Rae Mary and Fred Harris Jr. in Driving Miss DaisyPrior to Friday night, my only experience with Driving Miss Daisy was with the remarkable film version starring the incomparable Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. Although its tenderness sticks with me, for some reason I don’t recall Alfred Uhry's script being terribly funny. And with the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production of this material, I'm now wondering why I don’t remember the humor, considering how loud and often I laughed during director Donna Weeks' presentation.

Celebration Affirmation: "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus" at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through November 23

Bill Peiffer, Robert Wamer, and Steve Marriott in Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa ClausThe kids cast in the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus are the best parts of the production, with Lena Slininger’s Virginia and the rest of the children lending the proceedings a bright innocence – even when some youths are bullying Virginia about her worn-out shoes – that provides a welcome warmth to the holiday tale. Unfortunately, the kids aren’t of central importance in this play that includes one of their names in the title.
