Jake Walker, Stephanie Burrough, Chris Sanders-Ring, and Kitty Israel in Love's Labour's LostWhile waiting for the Prenzie Players' Thursday-night dress rehearsal of the William Shakespeare comedy Love’s Labour’s Lost to begin, I realized it had been a long time since I had seen one of the Bard of Avon’s plays performed live. I pondered whether I would be able to follow the plot and comprehend the dialogue. I worried that the show might be too stuffy for my unrefined sense of theatre. “Holy crap, I'm supposed to write a review – what if I don’t get it?” Yet as the show began, the Prenzies put my neuroses to rest very quickly.

Harvey and Mike Kelly in HarveyI’ve not seen the Jimmy Stewart take on playwright Mary Chase’s Harvey, so I cannot attest whether the movie's fans will appreciate the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production. However, in the absence of any comparison, I can say that I liked this presentation and now want to see the film – though it’ll have to successfully stand up against director James Fairchild’s version, rather than the other way around.

The Skittish Play: "Macbeth," at Lincoln Park through August 9

Sarah Ade Wallace and Todd Schwartz in MacbethBefore Saturday’s opening-night presentation, executive director Doug Tschopp took the stage for Genesius Guild’s traditional pre-show announcements and T-shirt giveaway, and kindly asked the crowd for continued financial support, especially given the organization’s decreased support since 2008 from the State of Illinois. Not to make light of a very real monetary concern, but I wish power players from Nike had been there for Tschopp’s request. Because after seeing Macbeth, they might’ve happily handed over a check, considering the motto for everyone involved in director Michael King’s inspiriting production appeared to be the same: "Just do it."

Just Desserts: "The Red Velvet Cake War," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through July 19

Ashley Hoskins, Lisa Kahn, and Sarah Ade Wallace in The Red Velvet Cake WarTwo of the things I miss most about reviewing theatre with greater frequency are raving about area artists whose talents I’m quite familiar with, and raving about area artists whose talents are brand-spanking-new to me. Happily, regarding the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s The Red Velvet Cake War, I get to do both. And that’s especially gratifying because one of the things I absolutely do not miss is explaining why certain well-meaning, lighthearted endeavors designed solely to entertain simply don’t work for me, and it looks like I have to do that, too.

2015 Playwrights Festival: One-ActsNew Ground Theatre's 2015 Playwrights Festival: One-Acts was, for me, a mixture of “Ha ha ha!” and “What the hell?!” I either laughed heartily during the five debuting works or sat confused as to the points their playwrights tried to make.
