Susan Perrin-Sallak, Gregory Braid, and Patti Flaherty in Arsenic & Old LaceI won’t lie: I left the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s January 5 preview performance of Arsenic & Old Lace a little creeped out. This show could be titled The Original American Horror Story, although a version with a light seasoning of laughter, and director Donna Weeks did an especially nice job of casting the show's eccentric characters that brought us into its world of homicide and pleasantries.

Center-Stage CraftThe ends of calendar years always bring with them a certain amount of reflection, and questions that we find ourselves quietly grappling with. “Did I achieve personal fulfillment and happiness?” “Were there people I improperly appreciated or unintentionally wronged?” “What are we going to do about the Reader’s annual year-in-theatre article now that Thom White has moved to Kentucky?!”

Holmes for the Holidays: "The Game's Afoot," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through November 22

L-R  Bryan Lopez, Molly McLaughlin, Drew Pastorek, Teri Nelson, Tom Naab, and Stephanie Naab in The Game's Afoot“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of a man can invent.” This Sherlock Holmes quote is a perfect description for the mystery play at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre – at least in terms of the lives of those on-stage. Just when you think things cannot get any crazier and the coincidences cannot get more coincidental, Ken Ludwig’s script shows you otherwise. The Game’s Afoot is a comedy with a mix of nutty characters and a whodunit theme, and while it was clear that the cast was still getting comfortable with each other and the script during Thursday's dress rehearsal, there were improvements in energy and confidence by the second act.

Hare Today, Gone Tomorrow: "Harvey," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through September 20

Harvey and Mike Kelly in HarveyI’ve not seen the Jimmy Stewart take on playwright Mary Chase’s Harvey, so I cannot attest whether the movie's fans will appreciate the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production. However, in the absence of any comparison, I can say that I liked this presentation and now want to see the film – though it’ll have to successfully stand up against director James Fairchild’s version, rather than the other way around.

Just Desserts: "The Red Velvet Cake War," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through July 19

Ashley Hoskins, Lisa Kahn, and Sarah Ade Wallace in The Red Velvet Cake WarTwo of the things I miss most about reviewing theatre with greater frequency are raving about area artists whose talents I’m quite familiar with, and raving about area artists whose talents are brand-spanking-new to me. Happily, regarding the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s The Red Velvet Cake War, I get to do both. And that’s especially gratifying because one of the things I absolutely do not miss is explaining why certain well-meaning, lighthearted endeavors designed solely to entertain simply don’t work for me, and it looks like I have to do that, too.
