John Donald O'Shea and Susan Philhower in Sex Please, Weire 60As suggested by the title, the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre’s current offering, Sex Please, We’re 60, involves men and women of a certain age and their libidos, but thankfully it maintains a modicum of decency by placing the “action” off stage. The piece also features many clichéd jokes and absurd situations, but while I cringed at the images conjured by the title, it’s when the work is at its (relatively) raunchiest that the play and the cast work best.

Katie Wesler, Marcia Sattelberg, and Erica Vlahinos in the Timber Lake Playhouse's The Spitfire GrillOn Thursday, I attended the Timber Lake Playhouse musical The Spitfire Grill, and caught another presentation of the piece – this time at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre – the very next night. I’m actually somewhat disappointed that no additional area venues staged the show over the weekend, because even after two outstanding Spitfire Grills in a row, I would’ve happily made time for more.

A Rogue by Any Other Name... : "The Importance of Being Earnest," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through July 17

Ray Rogers, Terri Nelson, and Jackie Patterson in The Importance of Being EarnestAbout two minutes into Thursday night’s performance of The Importance of Being Earnest, I panicked, knowing there were still two more hours of what had so far been – and seemed likely to continue to be – a flat, humorless presentation of playwright Oscar Wilde’s work. Fortunately, though, my fears were mostly unfounded, as the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre’s production improved as it progressed, and greatly improved with the arrival of the play’s female characters.

Pat Flaherty in King Lear“I think it came from going to church,” says area actor Pat Flaherty of his childhood interest in theatre. “Because I’d go to church, and I’d see this guy who was holding everybody’s interest through the whole service. It was very dramatic – they’d light the candles and ring the bells and everything – and for a while I thought I wanted to be a priest because of that.

“It turned out I just wanted to be on stage.”

Where the Buffalo-ians Roam: "Don’t Talk to the Actors," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through June 12

Kevin Maynard, Nicholas Waldbusser, Rosemary Ocar, Mollie A. Schmelzer, and Don Hazen in Don't Talk to the ActorsWhat strikes me most about the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre’s production of Don’t Talk to the Actors is the tone created by director Susan Simosky. While playwright Tom Dudzick’s script calls for a couple of roles to perhaps be played bigger than they are, Simosky maintains a simple feel that’s more natural than feigned. Watching Thursday’s performance, it seemed as if I was looking in on real-life scenes rather than designed ones. There’s a gentle, unforced flow to the effort that seems effortless.
