Cari Downing, Steve Lasiter, Sara King, and Tim Stompanato in The Musical Adventures of Flat StanleyPrior to seeing Saturday’s performance of The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse, my partner’s daughter Madison was most interested in seeing how the production would show Stanley getting flattened. I'll admit: I was most curious about that part, too.

Sara King and Samantha Pauly in Legally Blonde: The MusicalSpeaking with producer Dennis Hitchcock prior to Friday's Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse performance, my partner thanked him for staging Legally Blonde: The Musical. And while I understand that many of Circa '21's patrons love their Church Basement Ladies, I share my partner's gratitude for the opportunity to see a bona-fide Broadway hit gracing Circa's stage. Having seen the production, I also appreciate how well director Jim Hesselman handled the material, playing up the bubbly, colorful fun of this stage version of the Reese Witherspoon movie.

Critter Comforts: “Diary of a Worm, a Spider, & a Fly,” through May 5 at Circa ’21

Judging by the children dancing in the aisles during Saturday’s performance, Circa ’21’s current children’s offering Diary of a Worm, a Spider, & a Fly is a hit with younger audience members. But the hour-long musical also has quite a few laughs for the adults.

When the kids weren’t laughing at playwright Joan Cushing’s fart jokes or Worm describing his sister as having a “face that looks like her butt,” I was laughing at what I assume are director Kimberly Furness’ additions of pop-culture references. My favorite was Worm and Fly singing along to “Carry on My Wayward Son” after being told to “Please enjoy this music while your party is reached” when they call Spider’s cell phone.

Adrienne Griffiths, Kirsten Sparks, Megan Wheeler, and Shannon McMillan in The Marvelous WonderettesI found the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s The Marvelous Wonderettes to be sweet, well-sung, and, frankly, borderline annoying.

Give ’em the Slips: “Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” at the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse through September 24

Nancy Evans, Adelina Feldman-Schultz, and Sherry Konjura in Nana's Naughty KnickersFor what it is, the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s Nana’s Naughty Knickers is rather amusing and somewhat unexpected. The title, for me, conjures up images of scantily clad grannies telling off-color, elderly-themed jokes in a wild farce. Instead, playwright Katherine DiSavino’s piece is a mild farce, with a unique plot and interesting, likable characters (and only a handful of age-based jokes). I didn’t laugh quite as much as I expected to during Friday’s opening-night performance, but I was more engaged than I anticipated I would be, and interested in where DiSavino would take her characters.
