Jeremy Mahr and Mackenzie Kerr Jeremy Mahr may be our area's most effortlessly relaxed performer. There isn't even a trace of actor's phoniness in his line readings or physicality; there's so little artifice in Mahr's portrayals that he can easily fool you into thinking he's not acting at all. Mahr has a beautiful hangdog expression - he looks as if he's endured continual disappointment, and is prepared to endure more - and his focus is concentrated and imploring. Yet when he smiles, the warmth that exudes from him is a little overpowering; he acts like a man embarrassed to be receiving the happiness he deserves. Mahr is a supremely empathetic performer - I've now seen him in three productions since August, and for the life of me, I can't figure out how he manages to do so much while appearing to do so little.

Let me preface my review of the Richmond Hill Players’ The Sunshine Boys by saying that if the material itself makes you laugh, you may well be a fan of this production, and at Thursday’s opening-night performance, there were quite a few laughers among us.

Your enjoyment of the stage version of It’s a Wonderful Life – at least the James W. Rogers adaptation currently playing at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre – will likely depend on your familiarity with the classic film. I’m guessing that those who don’t already know the story will get more out of the experience than those who do, but how many of us, exactly, does that leave?
