Matt Mercer and David Turley in Waiting for GodotWith its themes of loneliness, reality, death, the meaning (and absurdity) of life, and the search for self, playwright Samuel Beckett’s tragicomedy Waiting for Godot is considered, by some, to be the most significant English-language play of the 20th Century. Frankly, though, I didn’t search for meaning in the script during Thursday night’s Godot performance at the Harrison Hilltop Theatre, as I was too busy being entertained, to the point of loud laughter, by the captivating oddity of the dialogue and performances.

History Bluff: "The Complete History of America (abridged)," at the Harrison Hilltop Theatre through November 27

Adam Overberg, Paul Workman, and Joseph Maubach in The Complete History of America (abridged)The Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s The Complete History of America (abridged) is moronic on the surface, yet has undertones of sharp wit. While Chris Walljasper’s direction makes the show play like a frat-boy presentation on the history of North America, there’s also an intelligence to the humor, which mixes pop-culture references – from Super Mario to Lady Gaga – with historical events from the past 50,000 years.

Bible Versus: "Hard to Believe," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through September 19

Wendy Czekalski and Paul Workman in Hard to BelieveI have little doubt that many patrons of the Playcrafters Barn Theatre will enjoy its current production of Hard to Believe, as there’s consistently an audience appetite for shows on themes of faith and God. The opening-night premiere of this locally written musical, however, reminded me too much of church performances of which I’ve seen or been a part. I’m not sure Hard to Believe will find a place in community theatres alongside other musicals, but it could very well find its place within many a church’s walls.

Puckishness: "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," at Lincoln Park through July 11

(seated) Ava Miller, Sarah Loula, Hannah King, and Michaela Garrison; (standing) Stephanie Moeller, Faith Rebekah, and Adam Overberg in A Midsummer Night's DreamI arrived at Genesius Guild's Friday-night performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream 10 minutes prior to the start of the show. What would otherwise be adequate arrival time for most of the Guild's performances proved a problem for this one - I could not find a seat. Other than a few spots on the not-comfortable-enough-for-more-than-two-hours bleachers, the seats were filled. With patrons already staking out spots on the surrounding lawn, I was forced to return to my car, grab a lawn chair, and jockey for a position to best view the night's performance.
