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.

The Prenzie Players are so serious about presenting innovative interpretations of Shakespeare’s scripts, they promise audience members “won’t forget our shows, ever.” Pretty lofty standards for a small group of Quad Cities actors who hold performances in rented found spaces (currently the Rock Island Housing Authority building) and use minimal props, costumes, staging, and production.

The Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's "Desk Set" Full of Laughs, Promise

Richmond Hill Players Theatre has done a very good thing. Instead of usual attempts to “wow” audiences with edgy (and, in my opinion, too brilliantly written for community theatre) scripts such as Steve Martin’s Picasso at the Lapin Agile or efforts to appeal to the older generation with shows such as On Golden Pond and Driving Miss Daisy, the organization’s current production of Desk Set settles contentedly into a much-needed middle ground.

Richmond Hill Serves Up Steve Martin’s "Picasso at the Lapin Agile"

Before Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein became icons of the 20th Century, they were dreamers. Steve Martin thinks so anyway. In his 1996 play Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Martin explores the unusual (fictional) meeting of young artist Picasso and science genius Einstein before they created history-changing works and ideas – during a time they had only the visions in their heads to rely on. Richmond Hill Players is performing the play in Geneseo through October 13.
