The Wonderful World of Disney: Quad City Music Guild's "Beauty & the Beast"
Written By: Mike Schulz

As Belle, the heroine of the Quad City Music Guild’s Beauty & the Beast, Jenny Winn is a complete cartoon, and I mean that in the best way possible. It’s generally thrilling when performers deviate from the expectations associated with a well-known character, but playing a role exactly the way an audience expects it to be played has its own rewards, and in Beauty & the Beast, Winn gives such a flawless approximation of a living-and-breathing animated figure that you might find it impossible not to stare at her with a big, goofy grin plastered on your face.

Music Guild Presents a Huge, Handsome "Fiddler on the Roof"

It’s too bad that so many of us greet the news of another area production of Fiddler on the Roof with an audible groan, because the show itself is really, really good. The music is marvelous, the characters are enjoyable, the story is well-plotted and touching, it’s always funnier than you remember it being … if you’re a musical-theatre fan and if you’ve never seen it, you have no excuse. But, let’s face it, it can be a daunting musical to sit through. “I love that show,” you’ll hear people say, “but, Jesus, it’s long … .”

If you’ve seen Some Like It Hot, nothing that happens in the Quad City Music Guild’s Sugar will come as a surprise; this 1973 musical-comedy is almost slavishly faithful to the 1959 Billy Wilder film that inspired it. But it does feature a curlicue that makes me giggle: the tap-dancing gangsters.

Theatre is evolving. While some scripts still relate the story of a unique person or community, it seems more writers are attempting to use representative characters to capture something more universal. These shows often consist of monologues that revolve around a central theme, such as girls’ and women’s lives in A … My Name Is Alice and female sexuality in The Vagina Monologues. Sometimes, as in The Vagina Monologues, each component is the result of real-life research and interviews conducted and modified by the playwright.

Quad City Music Guild’s Kiss Me, Kate boasts an ensemble of twenty-some gifted performers, including a tap-dancer whose photograph belongs alongside the likes of Gene Kelly, and singers that demonstrate excellent unity in rhythm. The musical is an entertaining, humorous, colorful, and energizing romp through the onstage and back-stage lives of performers in a Shakespearean play, and this production shouldn’t be missed.
