Anthony Natarelli, Liv Lyman, Erin Platt, Sara Wegener, Nancy Teerlinck, Jason Platt, Jennifer Sondgeroth, David Miller, and Christopher Tracy in The Addams FamilyTaking The Addams Family as a sign, I’m excited about the District Theatre’s future in downtown Rock Island's former Argus building, and while there are still a few growing pains to overcome, the company is clearly off to a good start.

The Sound and the Furry: "Cats," at the Prospect Park Auditorium through July 19

Dolores Sierra in CatsOne of the biggest stars of Quad City Music Guild’s take on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats never appears on stage, though her mark is rarely invisible the entire time, as designer Sara Wegener is responsible for the costumes, makeup, and wigs worn by the musical's cast of felines. Obviously drawing inspiration from the original West End and Broadway productions, it’s a bit of a shame that the intricacy in her makeup, in particular, isn’t fully discernible from the audience, because the detail in her work is exceptional. Adding her spiked-fur wigs with plush fabric ears, and her bodysuits and loose shirts and pants colored to look like various cat coats, Wegener's contributions are award-worthy.

ensemble members in Angels in America: Perestroika[For Thom White's review of part one of the District Theatre's Angels in America, visit "Darkness and Plight."]

Something clicked for the cast and crew of the District Theatre's Angels in America: Millennium Approaches since November, and now Angels' second half, Perestroika, is notably better for it. Director Deb Shippy and her cast have embraced the humor of playwright Tony Kushner’s magnum opus, and the result is an emotionally layered staging that’s superior to last fall's production.

John Antonin Dieter and Anthony Natarelli in Angels in America: Millennium ApproachesWith its emotional language and poetic imagery, Tony Kushner’s Angels in America the playwright's “gay fantasia on national themes” composed of two parts subtitled Millennium Approaches and Perestroika – is among my favorite scripts. And there are times at which the District Theatre’s production of Millennium Approaches nails the nuances of Kushner’s writing, allowing the beauty of his intent to be on full display.

Eric Landuyt, Jamie Bauschka, Melissa Hummel, Terri Nelson, Shawn Sutton, David Lane, and Victor Angelo in Marrying TerryReading through the program for the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s Marrying Terry filled me with eager anticipation for Friday’s performance, as the cast is mostly composed of newcomers to either the Playcrafters stage or any stage. While it’s fun to see familiar actors in different roles, it can be even more exciting to see fresh faces take to the theatre, and with this production, the new talents are a blend of fine actors and those who, with time, could become fine ones, too.
