Parent Trapped: "Baby with the Bathwater," at Scott Community College through April 29

Melanie Hanson in Baby with the BathwaterChristopher Durang’s irreverent Baby with the Bathwater is the current production at Scott Community College, and upon my arrival about 25 minutes prior to showtime, I enjoyed a few moments of the sweet music-box soundtrack, thinking it a clever juxtaposition to the darkly comedic farce that was to follow. However, a few minutes of it were enough for me to get the idea, and because those sounds were all that was in the offing regarding pre-show music, the next 22 minutes of waiting seemed, well, a bit long. Perhaps the music box also ignited my inner grump, because, with only a few exceptions, I did not find much comedic respite in the words and actions that followed.

Center-Stage CraftThe ends of calendar years always bring with them a certain amount of reflection, and questions that we find ourselves quietly grappling with. “Did I achieve personal fulfillment and happiness?” “Were there people I improperly appreciated or unintentionally wronged?” “What are we going to do about the Reader’s annual year-in-theatre article now that Thom White has moved to Kentucky?!”

Shannon O'Brien, Karina Monrreal, and Hannah Murray in The Dinner PartyWhen attending a student production, I'm excited for the young performers, and hope the evening ends with the audience standing and cheering. Such were my hopes on the opening night of Neil Simon’s The Dinner Party for the Scott Community College actors , who gave it their best shot with some standout performances. But to have a great production, it helps to have great writing and a great story to tell.

Parent-Screecher Conference: "God of Carnage," at Scott Community College through April 18

Sara Bolet and Amanda Dugan in God of CarnageGiven its sharply funny script, Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage is one of the few plays I could see over and over again. And while Scott Community College’s presentation of this story about two sets of parents discussing a fight between their young sons doesn’t quite live up to the brilliance of Reza’s dark comedy, director Kevin Babbitt and his cast and crew still nail the play’s most important points. That includes the necessary on-stage puking, which is just one enjoyable element in what ends up a rather humorous production.

My "Crossing" to Bear: "Crossing Acheron: The Tragedy of Antigone," at Scott Community College through April 19

William Marbury in Crossing Acheron: The Tragedy of AntigoneIt’s unfortunate that William Marbury’s angry, domineering King Creon and Analisa Percuoco’s defiant, strong-willed Antigone don’t share more stage time in Scott Community College’s production of Crossing Acheron: The Tragedy of Antigone. The actors share a similar energy in their performances, creating a palpable tension as the king condemns Antigone to be buried alive for, against his decree, twice attempting to bury her slain brother. Marbury and Percuoco are equally gifted at gleaning emotional meaning out of director/author Laura Winton’s Greek-tragedy adaptation and delivering their words with conviction, and their performances and chemistry are so captivating that they left me hoping the two will appear in a future production that involves more interaction between them.
