Courting Danger: "A Few Good Men," at the District Theatre through July 12
Written By: Mike Schulz

Tristan Tapscott, Sara Tubbs, and Jacob Kendall in A Few Good MenWith its ornate ceiling and fascinating, borderline-gaudy hanging light fixtures in the District Theatre's new home in the former Rock Island Argus building, A Few Good Men seems an appropriate inaugural production, in that the space looks like a courtroom – at least while you're looking up. Following the company's sometimes uncomfortable (for patrons) stint in its previous, rather cramped venue, this open area with the ceiling rising two stories above the floor is a much welcome relief, allowing director Lora Adams’ staging of Aaron Sorkin‘s courtroom drama to breathe in ways that, for the District Theatre, it otherwise couldn’t have.

Kaitlyn Casanova and Sara Tubbs in Fancy Nancy: The MusicalFrankly, I was surprised to see so many boys in attendance at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s Tuesday performance of Fancy Nancy: The Musical. Based on Jane O’Connor’s book Fancy Nancy & the Mermaid Ballet, the play would, I thought, appeal more obviously to girls, and prior to the opening of the (proverbial) curtain, I expected the lads populating my seat section to be disappointed. Fortunately, though, there’s plenty of content here that appeals to both girls and boys, and judging by the young males' positive reactions, they were delighted by the show – as was I.

Tristan Tapscott in High FidelityThursday’s preview performance of the District Theatre’s High Fidelity was, during its first act, a painful experience … because by intermission, my facial muscles actually hurt from smiling so much. While this musical – composed by Tom Kitt and Amanda Green, with a book by David Lindsay-Abaire – is, in itself, a lot of fun, director James Fairchild and his cast rocked the hell out of it, presenting its story of a record-store owner’s most recent breakup (in a long line of them) with infectious energy.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like ... : "Irving Berlin's White Christmas," at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse through December 28

the Irving Berlin's White Christmas ensembleAnnoyed by local radio stations that switch to 24 hours of holiday music on November 5, as well as stores that set up holiday displays before Halloween, I wasn’t all that keen on seeing a Christmas musical in early November. However, Irving Berlin’s White Christmas is my kind of holiday production: It’s light on its emphasis on Christmas cheer, and plays out as a musical that just happens to take place ahead of the holidays.

Delta Nu Attitude: "Legally Blonde: The Musical," at the Prospect Park Auditorium through July 20

Autumn Loose, Liv Lyman, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, and Becca Meumann Johnson in Legally Blonde: The MusicalLegally Blonde: The Musical is, of course, based on the 2001 hit starring Reese Witherspoon, a movie that led to a rather woebegone sequel in 2003’s Legally Blonde: Red, White, & Blonde. Yet while watching the original film’s stage version on Thursday, I felt that Red, White, & Blonde also would’ve been a fitting title for Quad City Music Guild’s terrifically peppy new presentation, considering that this solo-star-driven show came off, instead, as pretty wonderfully democratic.
