The Mousetrap As the lights dimmed for the Clinton Area Showboat Theatre's production of The Mousetrap - based on Agatha Christie's mystery novel - I already knew whodunnit. But don't be fooled into thinking that I possess superhuman powers of deduction or anything. I was in a high-school production of the play some 20 years ago. (Fine. Twenty-three years ago. Happy, Mom?)

So I'm not exactly fit to comment on how successfully Christie's murderous plot plays itself out here. Yet my familiarity with the story didn't lessen my enjoyment of CAST's endeavor in the slightest. Quite the contrary: I loved this production, because the vigor with which the Mousetrap ensemble played their comically shady characters was positively exhilarating.

At roughly the halfway point of Richard Dresser’s two-man comedy Rounding Third – currently playing at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre – Michael (Jim Driscoll), a sweet-tempered assistant Little League coach, asks the team’s boisterous head coach, Don (Fred Harris Jr.), if they might enjoy a moment of silence; Michael and Don have shared a continual, often exasperated dialogue over several weeks of team play, and Michael wonders if perhaps quiet would be preferable to jabber. “Oh no,” says Don. “We don’t know each other well enough to not talk.”

New Ground Theatre’s presentation of Rebecca Gilman’s stalker drama Boy Gets Girl is sensationally entertaining stuff – the most consistently smartly acted and directed work I’ve yet seen from this organization – and the production becomes all the more impressive when you realize just how easily it could have proven unbearable.
