Jeremy Mahr in The Complete Word of God (abridged)In the beginning, Brent Tubbs directed a play. And the production was without form and void; darkness was upon the face of the show. And the spirit of Brent moved upon the three-person cast. And Brent said, “Let there be humor,” and there was laughter. And Brent heard the giggles, and it was good. And Brent said, “Behold, I have provided everything necessary for entertainment.” And he knew that it was heavenly … even though yours truly, on Saturday, missed out on several probably heavenly scenes.

Brody-Tucker Ford, Sam Jones, and Brooke Schelly in The PillowmanDuring Friday's performance, the QC Theatre Workshop’s The Pillowman had me in stitches. While I didn’t laugh loudly often, I did chuckle repeatedly throughout the performance, only subduing my laughs out of concern that the subject of my delight was too dark to be funny. But playwright Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy is both unquestionably dark and outrageously funny. I mean, it has a young girl (Laila Haley) who considers herself Christ-like proclaiming, “I don’t think I’m Jesus. I [effing] am Jesus!” That is some dark comedy.

Harvey and Mike Kelly in HarveyI’ve not seen the Jimmy Stewart take on playwright Mary Chase’s Harvey, so I cannot attest whether the movie's fans will appreciate the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production. However, in the absence of any comparison, I can say that I liked this presentation and now want to see the film – though it’ll have to successfully stand up against director James Fairchild’s version, rather than the other way around.

Tristan Tapscott in High FidelityThursday’s preview performance of the District Theatre’s High Fidelity was, during its first act, a painful experience … because by intermission, my facial muscles actually hurt from smiling so much. While this musical – composed by Tom Kitt and Amanda Green, with a book by David Lindsay-Abaire – is, in itself, a lot of fun, director James Fairchild and his cast rocked the hell out of it, presenting its story of a record-store owner’s most recent breakup (in a long line of them) with infectious energy.
