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.

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.

(clockwise from left) Tamarin K. Ythier, James Fairchild, Erin Clark, Tristan Layne Tapscott, Brad Hauskins, Janet Ellen Brucken, and Marc Ciemiewicz in Love, Lies, and the LotteryMaybe you’ll need to have seen a lot of stage farces, or feel like you’ve seen every stage farce, to appreciate what writer/director Jim Hessleman is doing in the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s world-premiere presentation Love, Lies, & the Lottery. Because this isn’t just, as its title implies, a traditional, door-slamming slapstick, despite the numerous doors to be slammed. (Or rather, here, gently closed.) This energetic, sometimes hilarious, incredibly busy production is more accurately a comedic greatest-hits package, and one boasting a larger number of familiar genre conceits than you would’ve thought squeezable into two hours of stage time. You could teach a semester on Intro to Modern Farce using Hesselman’s play as your textbook and still not cover everything in time for the final.
