Richmond Hill Plants a Not-Bad "Seed"
Written By: Mike Schulz

The Richmond Hill Barn Theatre’s production of Maxwell Anderson’s The Bad Seed is entertaining stuff, yet you might not believe more than a few words of it. The sincerity that director Jalayne Riewerts gives the piece is admirable, but also a little misguided, because the show often aims for penetrating insight and forgets why audiences love The Bad Seed in the first place – not for its psychology, but because of the inherent fun in watching an eight-year-old sociopath get away with murder.

At Friday’s nearly sold-out performance of Over the Tavern at Richmond Hill’s Barn Theatre, I found myself seated next to a charming couple who engaged me in conversation. I asked whether they had heard of the play previously, as Tom Dudzick’s comedy was unfamiliar to me. The gentleman responded that he’d read a little bit about it, but his wife said, “Not me. I like being surprised.”

A Pleasing, If Uneven, Walk Through "the Forest": "Another Part of the Forest" at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre
Written By: Mike Schulz

There are two styles of drama going on in Lillian Hellman’s Another Part of the Forest, or at least there are in the Richmond Hill Players’ current production of it: domestic and melo-. A prequel of sorts to the author’s more widely known The Little Foxes, Another Part of the Forest features, as its central figure, patriarch Marcus Hubbard (Stan Weimer), the richest man in Bowden, Alabama, circa 1880. A cruel, conniving, even murderous despot, Marcus is universally reviled, especially by his children – Benjamin (James V. Driscoll), Oscar (Steve Mroz), and Regina (Keri Cousins) – all of whom, for reasons of their own, want their hands on the family fortune.

Richmond Hill’s "You Can't Take It with You" Is All (Kaufman &) Hart
Written By: Mike Schulz
Section: Theatre

Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman’s 1938 comedy You Can’t Take It with You is so sturdy and reliably entertaining that it doesn’t take much more than a mediocre version of it to make audiences happy. The current production at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre is significantly better than mediocre – vibrantly played and almost consistently pleasurable – but what’s completely surprising is the cleverness and skill behind Vicki Deusinger’s staging of it.

The time: the present invaded by the past. The setting: sanctuaries in the southwest desert. The play: Altar Call. And the playwright: Melissa McBain, who has appropriated one of the country’s most volatile current debates – where the church stands on the subject of homosexuality – as her play’s subject.
