War and Remembrance: “Time Stands Still,” at the Village Theatre through September 25

Eddie Staver III, Kimberly Furness, Mike Schulz, and Jessica Denney in Time Stands StillI quite appreciate the way Kimberly Furness and Eddie Staver III work with tension, using silence, emotional distance, anger, and passionate desire, among other acting tools, to portray the intensity (or lack thereof) in their onstage relationships. Their violent, sometimes stunted, oftentimes broken, yet undeniably sensual connection in both the Curtainbox Theatre Company’s Danny & the Deep Blue Sea in 2008 and Fool for Love in 2010 was breathtaking to watch. And while their current efforts in Time Stands Still are much more subtle, they’re no less dramatic. Instead of their stunning physical work in the previous two shows, Furness’ and Staver’s performances here rely on the verbal and emotional aspects of their relationship, one superbly crafted by these gifted actors.

Jennifer Weingarten and Daniel Rairdin-Hale in If You Give a Mouse a CookieWhat happens if you give a mouse a cookie? Nothing good, if you’re the cookie giver. If, however, you’re watching what unfolds by way of the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s current youth-theatre offering, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, it’s a delightful experience.

Mike Schulz, Erin Churchill, and Daniel M. Hernandez in Speed-the-PlowErin Churchill is the reason to see the Curtainbox Theatre Company’s current production, Speed-the-Plow. Actually, that’s a bit deceptive, as it implies that she’s the only reason to see the show. Curtainbox founder Kimberly Furness’ directorial debut with her company is applause-worthy, as are the stellar performances of the play’s other cast members, Mike Schulz (a Reader employee) and Daniel M. Hernandez. However, it was Churchill’s sincerity, earnestness, and diversity that closed the deal for me, leaving me in utter awe during Saturday night’s performance.

Kimberly Furness[Author's note: The following was written for TheCurtainbox.com, the Web site for our area's Curtainbox Theatre Company, of which I've been a proud member for nearly a year.]

 

Recently, Curtainbox Theatre Company founder Kim Furness and I sat down over a glass of wine – all right, maybe a couple of glasses – to celebrate her company's 10-year anniversary. She had recently taken over the directing position for the Curtainbox's latest production, Speed-the-Plow (in the wake of original helmer Philip W. McKinley’s recruitment as new director of Broadway’s Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), and during our conversation, was happy to share her thoughts on the company’s history. (The David Mamet comedy Speed-the-Plow – featuring Erin Churchill, Dan Hernandez, and myself – runs at the Village of East Davenport’s Village Theatre from April 10 through 23, with preview performances April 8 & 9.)
