the District Theatre's Avenue Q ensembleAvenue Q is one of a few musicals that I thought should maybe only be staged by Broadway professionals. However, it didn’t take long during Friday’s performance at the District Theatre for director Marc Ciemiewicz and his cast to prove they can handle Avenue Q, and handle it well.

Desmond Grasker, Curtis Wyatt, Joe Obleton, and Betty Cosey in A Lesson Before DyingI’ve been moved by several productions this year, but by none so deeply as the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s A Lesson Before Dying.

Kevin Brake, Don Hazen, Mike Kelly, Paul Workman, and Vicki Deusinger in See How They RunSee How They Run, currently being staged at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre, is described on the venue's Web site as "a classic farce of mistaken identity and slamming doors." But in actuality, only two parts of that three-part statement turn out to be accurate.
