Jackson Green, Jordan Webster-Moore, and  Becca Brazel in Noises OffMichael Frayn’s 1982 comedy Noises Off, which will be performed by the St. Ambrose theatre department this weekend, is a fast-paced, riotously wacky farce full of witty lines and tremendous physical comedy, and I can’t believe that, prior to Tuesday night’s rehearsal, I had never seen it before. This has, indeed, been my loss.

Kayla Lansing, Jordan Webster-Moore, Helene DeVine, Simon Khoury, and Jonathan J.J. Johnson in Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman SmellsArriving for the 10 a.m. production of St. Ambrose University’s Junie B. in Jingle Bells, Batman Smells on December 3, what first caught my eye were the big yellow school buses parked outside, and I realized, “Ah, yes, I’m going back to elementary school today.” (This was a scheduled school performance not open to the general public.) Inside the Galvin Fine Arts Center, I was transported into a first-grade “classroom” that consisted of Junie B. Jones and her friends on stage and the elementary students who filled the large auditorium to capacity. The juxtaposition of the joyous, high energy in this “classroom” and my feelings roused from recent world and national tragedies made me think about the world we have made for these children, wherein their innocence will be lost all too soon, and the more that laughter rang in the room, the more poignant my feelings became.

The Wind in Their Sales: “Glengarry Glen Ross,” at St. Ambrose University through February 22

Sam Jones and Jordan McGinnis in Glengarry Glen RossGlengarry Glen Ross was my introduction to the writing of David Mamet, with the 1992 film version of his play marking my first exposure to his work. Awestruck, I fell in love with Mamet’s vulgar, layered, verbose style, which made it difficult for me to go into St. Ambrose University’s new production without high expectations. Fortunately, though, director Corinne Johnson and her cast and crew – particularly set designer Kris Eitrheim – get it mostly right.

Job Shadowing: "Working," at St. Ambrose University through October 5

Kelci Eaton, Becca Brazel, and Chris Galván in WorkingThe cast members in St. Ambrose University’s production of Working offer a somewhat unexpected and altogether delightful sincerity in their portrayals of American workers in various trades. These young actors, after all, presumably don’t have much, if any, career experience as full-time masons, receptionists, or prostitutes, among other professions. Yet they handle this musical as though possessing full knowledge of the experiences of the average worker, which, during Wednesday’s dress rehearsal, helped me connect with the oftentimes funny, sometimes touching material.

Delta Nu Attitude: "Legally Blonde: The Musical," at the Prospect Park Auditorium through July 20

Autumn Loose, Liv Lyman, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, and Becca Meumann Johnson in Legally Blonde: The MusicalLegally Blonde: The Musical is, of course, based on the 2001 hit starring Reese Witherspoon, a movie that led to a rather woebegone sequel in 2003’s Legally Blonde: Red, White, & Blonde. Yet while watching the original film’s stage version on Thursday, I felt that Red, White, & Blonde also would’ve been a fitting title for Quad City Music Guild’s terrifically peppy new presentation, considering that this solo-star-driven show came off, instead, as pretty wonderfully democratic.
