In Praise of the CAST Cast: "Don't Drink the Water" at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre

Perhaps the biggest pleasure in attending an entire season of summer-stock theatre lies in the chance to see familiar faces in show after show. If a company’s actors have impressed you in the past, just noticing their names in a new program is enough to make you smile, and I’ve now smiled throughout four consecutive shows at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre (CAST). By this point, I’m so happy just seeing Katherine Walker Hill and Nicole Horton and Chris Amos and Craig Merriman and Patrick Stinson and Sandee Cunningham and Michael Oberfield and the rest of CAST’s 2005 ensemble that it barely matters what show they’re in; with actors this enjoyable, audiences are all but guaranteed to have a great time. (It’s a wonderful argument for remaining faithful to a theatre … and for purchasing season subscriptions.)

Comic Subversion on the Showboat: "Ruthless" at the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre

Black comedy is tough to pull off, and camp is even tougher, so it’s no small praise to say that the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre’s production of Ruthless is a huge success. This savvy, ballsy musical about a mother-daughter duo who will literally kill to succeed in show biz is so mean and bitchy that it’s sure to piss off or offend all the right people, and it’s a credit to the comic subversion of the theatre’s artistic director, Jay Berkow, that he chose Ruthless as the theatre’s Sound of Music follow-up. The show is vicious and borderline inhuman … and I could barely see my notepad through my tears of laughter.

Surprise! Clinton’s "Sound of Music" Is Full of Surprises

I hate The Sound of Music, but on some level, doesn’t everyone? The sugar-coated sensibility, the repetitive songs we know far too well, the Julie Andrews wannabes trilling with relentless cheeriness, the use of Nazis as a pesky, simplistic plot device … . I know that the show is an assured cash cow for producers, but many of us would be happy for the book and score to disappear until the show’s hundredth anniversary in 2059. (I’ll be dead by then, right?)

"Bob" Not to Be Taken Lightly, Not to Be Missed: "Almighty Bob" at Circa '21

Though senior citizens, religion, sex, love, and the timely battle between good and evil are all poked fun at in Circa ’21’s current show, playgoers should be prepared to see more than just a lighthearted comedy. Almighty Bob is quite a funny play, but it also lifts the veil from the element that is our ever-present fear – death – and gives us the playwright’s take on how life and death work.
