I don’t like to start reviews with questions, but New Ground Theatre’s current production of Lobby Hero raises some interesting ones. (1) Is a hero someone who, when faced with a moral dilemma, reveals deep dark secrets that will get a friend in big trouble? 2) Does sliding indifferently through life without ever changing viewpoints, challenging ideas, or standing up for personal rights gain someone hero status?

Compared to Chicago or even to Iowa City, the Quad Cities’ contemporary-theatre base is practically nonexistent. But that could change with the help of one of the area’s newest drama groups. With only two staged plays under its belt, the New Ground Theatre Company is already living up to its name.
