John Antonin Dieter and Anthony Natarelli in Angels in America: Millennium ApproachesWith its emotional language and poetic imagery, Tony Kushner’s Angels in America the playwright's “gay fantasia on national themes” composed of two parts subtitled Millennium Approaches and Perestroika – is among my favorite scripts. And there are times at which the District Theatre’s production of Millennium Approaches nails the nuances of Kushner’s writing, allowing the beauty of his intent to be on full display.

Mask Appeal: "The Suppliants" and "The Persians," at Lincoln Park through July 6

Pat Flaherty and ensemble members in The SuppliantsThis year, Genesius Guild’s annual Greek tragedy is a double-feature, as the local theatrical organization presents Aeschylus’ The Suppliants and The Persians – two plays for the price of one (which is still free). With each piece running less than an hour, the entire evening’s entertainment, even with intermission, falls just short of two hours, giving audiences one partial hour of what frequent Guild patrons expect from the group’s Greek tragedies, and one partial hour of some very welcome, though relatively minor, changes.

Secrets and Lies: "Other Desert Cities," at the Village Theatre through October 27

Jared Svoboda, Tracy Pelzer-Timm, Pat Flaherty, and Susan Perrin-Sallak in Other Desert CitiesWhile leaving Friday’s performance of Other Desert Cities, a friend told me that he thought it was the best play he’d seen by New Ground Theatre, and I agreed that, if not the best, it is at least among the best productions by the local company. Director David Turley’s staging of playwright Jon Robin Baitz’s smart, realistic dialogue and intriguing storyline has a tremendous palpability to it, both in the family dynamics of those on-stage and in the tensions and emotions they feel.

Depression? What Depression?: "Southern Crossroads," at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse through September 21

 Brad Hauskins, Tom Walljasper, Rachelle Walljasper, Lora Adams, Andrew Crowe, and Jody Alan Lee in Southern CrossroadsWith its charm, high spirits, optimism, and infectiously fun tunes selected and arranged by Steve Przybylski, there’s a wonderful specialness to playwright Warner Crocker’s Southern Crossroads. And in the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse's current production of the show, what's particularly special about what is already a good musical has a lot to do with director Curt Wollan’s cast members, who have an apparent love for the material and exude a palpable enjoyment in their performance of it. This piece transcends traditional musical theatre in a way that’s all too rare, pulling in its audience through a spell of song and hope.

The Down-and-Dirty Dozen: "12 Angry Men," at the District Theatre through August 10

the District Theatre's 12 Angry Men ensembleIt only takes the jurors of the District Theatre’s 12 Angry Men an hour to deliberate and arrive at a verdict in the play’s murder trial, but director Tristan Tapscott’s production in no way feels rushed or stunted. Instead, Thursday’s 60-minute trip through this classic piece of theatre did a fine job of showcasing the excellence of playwright Reginald Rose’s script. Plus, purists be damned, Tapscott’s decision to cast women in what’s traditionally – even titularly – an all-male drama proves not at all problematic, and allows for the inclusion of Patti Flaherty, and her infusion of humorous personality traits, in the role of Juror Four.
