Sara Laufer, Stacy Herrick, Archie Williams, and Elizabeth Buzard in Murder on the RerunThere's an early point in the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's Murder on the Run in which Sara Laufer's angel-to-be Kitty follows her explanation of the “rules” behind playwright Fred Carmichael's universe by saying to the audience, "I bet you're really confused, right?" Um, no. You just explained the story's rules very clearly and in great detail. And this exposes one of the flaws of Carmichael's writing: He makes sure absolutely nothing is left to the imagination. But at least the setup to this comedic murder mystery, though a bit convoluted, is kind of fascinating.

Josh Wielenga, A.J. Evans, and Greg Bouljon in Down to EarthA poorly written script isn’t enough to derail the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's Down to Earth. While I've never before thought “Too much exposition!” as much as I did during Thursday’s performance, I still enjoyed director Joe DePauw’s presentation of playwright Bettye Knapp’s weak “comedy fantasy” about angels coming to Earth.

And the Tony Goes to … : "Antony & Cleopatra" at the QC Theatre Workshop through May 9

Kristin Skaggs and J.C. Luxton in Antony & CleopatraMuch of Friday’s performance of the Prenzie Players’ Antony & Cleopatra played almost like a romantic comedy. Director Kate Farence’s staging of William Shakespeare’s tragedy feels lighter and funnier than perhaps the material calls for, with the titular couple enjoying their post-Julius Caesar relationship – and ultimately dealing with Rome’s political power plays and battles – amidst a den of hedonism, with hippie-esque attendants engaging in swinging orgies and drug use. Matt Moody’s set design even has the lovers reclining on a tiered platform covered in colorful pillows and blankets, a seeming nod to the pair’s interest in each other over the power of a throne. And the personality in Farence’s production proves titillating – and should make the show more palatable for those who might not enjoy a stuffier version.

John Turner in Caesar, photo by Aimee FordThe Prenzie Players' Caesar, the company's truncated title for William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, has a playfulness about it, as director Tracy Skaggs reduces the Roman leader, played here by John Turner, to the role of celebrity. This consequently provides moments of humor and fun where there might otherwise be none, the highlight of which is J.C. Luxton’s Antony grabbing patrons from out of the audience and stating “Caesar grants your wish – rise,” before using his cell phone to snap pictures of the attendees with Caesar.

Boo! Hiss! Hooray!: "The Curse of an Aching Heart: Or, Trapped in the Spider's Web," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through July 21

Jackie Patterson, Jackie Skiles, and Sarah Ade in The Curse of an Aching Heart: Or, Trapped in the Spider's WebSo far as melodramas go, The Curse of an Aching Heart: Or, Trapped in the Spider's Web is, for me, one of the more tolerable and entertaining works in its genre. Not being a fan of this brand of comedy, I still laughed quite a bit during Thursday’s performance at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre, as playwright Herbert Swayne’s clever wit and director Tom Morrow’s pleasingly on-the-verge-of-over-dramatic tone made for an amusing night of comedy.
