John VanDeWoestyne, Christopher Tracy, Mark Ruebling, Bryan Tank, Brian Nelson, and Paul Workman in CompanyAt the start of the intermission to Friday night’s District Theatre performance of Company, my partner turned to me and said, “I don’t remember this show being that funny.” He was right, because director David Turley accentuates the funny parts in this musical by composer Stephen Sondheim and writer George Furth. He does so, however, with subtle nudges and winks that almost cross over into silliness but don't, and that keep the production from sinking into sappy sentimentality.

Christina Myatt and Kelly Lohrenz in ChicagoI really like Chicago. Its tuneful score, uniquely vaudevillian presentation, and delightfully naughty nature make it one of my favorite stage musicals. There’s one number in the show, however, that tops them all for me: “Cell Block Tango,” which is sexy, fun, and what I consider the benchmark for the overall production. And on Friday night, my entertainment needs would’ve been met, and then some, had the District Theatre’s production actually ended after this number, even thought it’s only the fourth song in the piece.

Jesus Christ Superstar in rehearsalOdd as it may seem now, there actually was a period in the Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s history – a run of 12 shows, to be precise – in which the company didn’t produce any musicals whatsoever. Yet after staging a dozen plays between June 2008 and May 2009, co-founders Tristan Tapscott and Chris Walljasper chose to open the theatre’s second season with a production of Jonathan Larson’s rock musical tick ... tick ... BOOM!

Christina Myatt in GypsyAs if she hadn’t already proven so in the previous three hours of Friday’s Countryside Community Theatre performance, Christina Myatt left no doubt that she’s worthy of the larger-than-life role of Mama Rose with Gypsy’s final song, “Rose’s Turn.”

Sara King, Kevin Grastorf (front seat), Adam Overberg, and Cari Downing (back seat) in I Love You, You're Perfect, Now ChangeI fall for Adam Overberg’s onstage charm with every new performance. He has a demeanor, a presence, that captivates me, and he proves his diversity as an actor over and over again. With the Harrison Hilltop Theatre’s I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, though, he adds singing to the long list of talents he possesses, and while his voice may lack polish, Overberg’s vocals remain enthralling through his interpretations and comedic delivery.
