Tom Naab, Jackie Skiles, and Stephanie Naab in The Last RomanceThe Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's The Last Romance is, for the most part, a refreshingly lighthearted romantic comedy. Watching Friday’s performance, I was delighted not only with much of playwright Joe DiPietro’s script, but also with the tempo of director Tom Morrow’s production. The characters' conversations are quickly paced, though not unnaturally so, and maintain the piece's joyful energy, but Morrow also gives his cast moments to breathe when appropriate, allowing the play's emotions and humor to sink in before the fast-talking exchanges continue.

Melissa Anderson Clark and Bryan Tank in All Shook UpThe Shakespeare-inspired Elvis Presley pastiche All Shook Up is too inconsequential and ridiculous - gloriously so - to feature anything resembling a moral. But if pressed, you could probably fashion one from the words of its motorcycle-riding hero, Chad: "It's like my daddy used to say: 'In the right light, with the right liquor, anyone can fall for anyone.'"

A Pleasant-Enough Trek "Through the Woods": "Over the River & Through the Woods" at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre

Joe DiPietro’s Over the River & Through the Woods is a charming stage sitcom, and based on a final dress rehearsal held January 10, the production of it that opened the Playcrafters Barn Theatre's 2006 season is perfectly charming, too. The large, invited audience of (mostly) seniors who attended the rehearsal seemed to have a terrific time; the show’s punchlines, more often than not, got their laughs, and there was no denying the sweetness of spirit that emanated from the show – if smiles were audible, it would have been deafening in the Barn Theatre.

Riverside Theatre in Iowa City is one of only a handful of regional theatres fortunate enough to gain the rights to present I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change so early in its history. The musical comedy – dubbed “Seinfeld set to music” – is still running in New York at the WestSide Theatre and is also in Boston, and it hasn’t begun to tour nationally. But it’s at the Riverside Theatre through September 30.
