Kriss Doss, Aaron Brakefield, Christian Chambers, Daniella Dalli, Livvy Marcus, and Jonathan Young in Next to NormalThursday’s performance of Next to Normal didn’t appear as well-attended as the rest of the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s opening nights this summer. Yet while this musical trip through a family’s struggle with the mother’s mental issues may not be as familiar as a Cats or Steel Magnolias, this isn’t a piece to miss. The songs by Tom Kitt and book by Brian Yorkey are powerful testimonies to the reality of mental illness for those who suffer from it, and those who suffer through it alongside a loved one.

Derrick Bertram, Joseph Brune, Kate Struble (center) and ensemble members in SeussicalIt is with no hesitation that I admit adoring Stephen Flaherty's and Lynn Ahrens' musical Seussical, for which Flaherty wrote the music and Ahren the lyrics, with both collaborating on the book. Though it seems a children's play, the lyrics, melodies, and harmonies are sophisticated and memorable, and knowing how much I like this piece – and remembering the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s excellent Cats from earlier this summer – I couldn’t set aside my expectations prior to Thursday’s Showboat performance, certain I was in for a theatrical treat. Director Matthew Teague Miller did not disappoint.

Natalie Fisher in CatsI struggle with where to begin in praising director Matthew Teague Miller’s Cats at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre, simply because there’s so much to praise.

Hear the People Sing: "Les Misérables," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through August 10

John B. Leen in Les MiserablesIf the Timber Lake Playhouse’s production of Les Misérables is the only experience some theatre-goers will have with Alain Boublil’s and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s much-loved musical, I think that would be more than okay. Director Matthew Teague Miller and his cast and crew not only do justice to the material, but present it in a memorable way that, for me, actually improves on the long-running Broadway version. This is an exceptional production, boasting fantastic performances and exquisite imagery.

Now We're Cookin'!: "The Spitfire Grill," at the Timber Lake Playhouse and the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre Through August 21

Katie Wesler, Marcia Sattelberg, and Erica Vlahinos in the Timber Lake Playhouse's The Spitfire GrillOn Thursday, I attended the Timber Lake Playhouse musical The Spitfire Grill, and caught another presentation of the piece – this time at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre – the very next night. I’m actually somewhat disappointed that no additional area venues staged the show over the weekend, because even after two outstanding Spitfire Grills in a row, I would’ve happily made time for more.
