You Know You Make Me Want to ... : "Shout! The Mod Musical," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through August 24

Caroline Murrah, Melissa Weyn, Daryn Harrell, Lexie Plath, and Allison Hunt in Shout! The Mod MusicalShout! The Mod Musical is not only the most tolerable musical revue I’ve seen to date, but also the most enjoyable. With more substance than The Taffetas and less forced plot than The Marvelous Wonderettes, this girl-group celebration of 1960s songs is both cohesive and a whole lot of fun, especially given the Timber Lake Playhouse’s current staging of it.

Melissa Weyn in Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor DreamcoatFewer than 90 minutes after it began, the Timber Lake Playhouse’s season-opening production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat ended, appropriately, with a blast of exuberant, life-affirming color. Yet at the curtain call for this fantastically well-sung presentation of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s and lyricist Tim Rice’s beloved biblical musical, it became clear that the stars of the show weren’t the gifted performers portraying Joseph, the Narrator, or any of director James Beaudry’s 19 other cast members. The real stars, it turned out, were the streamers.

Happy Feat: "Footloose," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through July 15

the Footloose ensembleThe inherent danger in seeing any production of Footloose, whether on stage or screen, is that you risk having those maddeningly catchy pop tunes trapped in your brain for days. I’m therefore pleased to report that, less than 72 hours after attending the Timber Lake Playhouse’s speedy and sprightly take on the musical, I no longer have “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” “Holding Out for a Hero,” and the rest playing in an endless mental loop. It’s actually the performances by Karl Hamilton and Elizabeth Haley that I can’t get out of my head.

Erica Stephan, Dreiden Thomas Meints, Judy Knudtson, Sharriese Hamilton, and Andrew Way in WorkingBased on the justly celebrated 1974 nonfiction by Studs Terkel, the musical Working is a two-act series of vignettes on the joys and frustrations of professional life, and the search for satisfaction in even the most mundane of careers. It’s somewhat ironic, then, that in the Timber Lake Playhouse’s current, wholly engaging, superbly performed production of the show, the most effective segment in it concerns a man who actually doesn’t work for a living.

Fire and Dice: "Guys & Dolls," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through June 17

Guys & Dolls ensemble membersOn any given day, the musical I consider my all-time favorite will either be Sweeney Todd or Guys & Dolls ... unless that day is the day after I’ve seen a production of Guys & Dolls, in which case it’s the clear winner. Heaven knows there are plenty of entertaining, tune-filled warhorses from Broadway’s golden era, but do any of them have the effervescent fizz and pop of composer/lyricist Frank Loesser’s 1950 triumph, a beautifully constructed musical comedy so funny and clever and sweet that it can keep you happy and humming for hours – like, 100 hours – after it ends?
