Natalie Anderson, Allison Willie, Autumn Loose, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, Krianna Walljasper, Ben Klocke, Gage McCalester, and Hailie Shemek in The Sound of MusicThere’s an effervescent joy permeating the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s The Sound of Music from beginning to end – minus the Nazi involvement, of course. Director/choreographer Jim Hesselman’s production exudes an infectious glee that, for me, lifts this Rodgers & Hammerstein classic to new heights of performance pleasure. And as Hesselman must know that audiences take great delight in its composers' cherished musical and remember it fondly, he plays to those happy memories.

ensemble members in Les MisérablesI’m on record stating that I was “Les Mis-ed out” after seeing three local productions of Les Misérables, and facing a fourth, over a year-and-a-half span. Yet after attending the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s version on Friday, my love for the material is renewed, as director Jerry Jay Cranford’s staging adds intimacy while still possessing the grandeur of composers Alain Boublil’s and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s musical masterpiece.

'Daniel Rairdin-Hale, Allison Nook, and Emily Baker in 'Twas the Night Before ChristmasTwas the Night Before Christmas, at Circa's playhouse,

Is a play that’s about a large, loud, stirring mouse.

Bradley Hauskins plays Brierly – it's he who tells

Of a rodent, our star (that role’s Dan Rairdin-Hale’s).

the Irving Berlin's White Christmas ensembleAnnoyed by local radio stations that switch to 24 hours of holiday music on November 5, as well as stores that set up holiday displays before Halloween, I wasn’t all that keen on seeing a Christmas musical in early November. However, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is my kind of holiday production: It’s light on its emphasis on Christmas cheer, and plays out as a musical that just happens to take place ahead of the holidays.

Deborah Kennedy, Karen Pappas, and Andrea Moore in Funny, You Don't Look Like a GrandmotherThank goodness for second acts, because Saturday's production of the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s Funny, You Don’t Look Like a Grandmother, with its first act that almost put my own mother-who-doesn’t-look-like-a-grandmother to sleep, had us laughing fairly heartily during its second half. Director Ann Nieman’s staging of this modern-granny revue is fun and comfortably paced, and her choreography is oftentimes peppy and clever, especially in the yoga-class number and the jazzy, early-20th-Century-styled footwork of the musical’s high-energy “Grandmas to Go,” which features the play’s three leads – Karen Pappas, Deborah Kennedy, and Andrea Moore – singing gorgeous, tight, impressive Andrews Sisters-type harmonies.
