Kitty Israel in Doctor FaustusThere were moments during Friday’s performance of the Prenzie Players’ Doctor Faustus in which I was creeped out, but with a fascination that had me begging for more. Director Jake Walker, sound designer Elizabeth Spoerl, and lighting designer Tyson Danner create effectively ominous scenes, particularly those involving chanting or whispering from behind the black curtains surrounding the audience, or red light pouring forth from an opening in that cloth wall. Chills ran up my spine, goosebumps rose along my legs and arms, and the hair on the back of my neck stood up multiple times – all signs of a thrilling production.

Brotherly Loathe: "True West," at the QC Theatre Workshop through June 1

Jeremy Mahr and Mike Schulz in True WestThe approach that director Tyson Danner takes with the QC Theatre Workshop's True West frustrates me in that, with leading actors Jeremy Mahr and (Reader employee) Mike Schulz playing either Austin or Lee depending on the results of a flipped coin minutes before the metaphorical curtain rises, I want to see them in both roles. With the character assignments left to chance, however, it's possible to attend every performance of the play's run and not get an opportunity to see Schulz and Mahr ever swap characters. And in a way, that's too bad, as the performers were so remarkable in Friday's presentation that I imagine a switch would make a subsequent viewing all the more interesting.

Elizabeth and Emily Hinckler in My SisterWhen a play stirs emotions in a way that invites a change in one's perspectives on life or the world, that’s true theatre magic. Such is the case with the QC Theatre Workshop’s My Sister, which, after it ended, left me wanting to just be quiet and alone for a while, in order to digest what I’d observed and learned during Saturday’s performance.

One-Hundred-Word Moments in Time: Thom White, and a Few Others, on the Year in Theatre

Cara Chumbley, Lora Adams, Brad Hauskins, and Rachelle Walljasper in Things My Mother Taught MeAnother year of area stage productions has come and gone, and wanting to try something different this December, Reader theatre reviewer Thom White and I thought we’d bypass our traditional, end-of-year postmortem in favor of an alternate approach: requesting 100-words-or-fewer submissions from our readers on what people found particularly memorable about the 2013 stage scene. “It’ll be something new!” we thought. “It’ll be exciting! It’ll be filled with fresh voices that aren’t ours!” And, I must admit, we were dazzled with the overall response.

Well, “dazzled” may be overstating it.

Hmmm ... what’s the word I’m looking for ... ?

“Mortified,” maybe ... ?

Italian Beefs: "The Two Gentlemen of Verona," at the QC Theatre Workshop through December 15

Adam Michael Lewis and Sergeant Leon Maxwell Edison VonPepper in The Two Gentlemen of VeronaThe women of The Two Gentlemen of Verona shine in the Prenzie Players’ latest production. Maggie Woolley’s effervescent Julia and Catie Osborn’s enrapturing Silvia – characters courted by the two gentlemen of the title – are especially captivating, thanks to Woolley's and Osborn's layered portrayals of ladies in (and later out of, and then back in) love. They’re among a group of female actors here that offer dynamic, entertaining performances filled with notable nuance, aplomb, and, when called for, titillating humor. And they are a credit to director Andy Lord’s vision for what seems to me one of William Shakespeare’s weaker, less refined plays. The women help add emotional depth to the text, while Lord wisely places the comedic aspects of the tale at the forefront through his cast's energetic performances.
