Not Exactly Hot, but Awfully Sweet: "Sweet & Hot: The Songs of Harold Arlen" at Playcrafters

About four months ago, my schedule forced me to catch the first dress rehearsal of Playcrafters’ Over the River & through the Woods as opposed to a paid performance, and so I took some personal responsibility for my dissatisfaction with the show; a lot of what seemed to be lacking, I thought, could easily have improved by opening night. It seemed a little unfair to be critiquing a rehearsal. (What better place to err than rehearsal?)

Well, circumstances dictated that I again catch a Playcrafters production before its official opening – I saw the Barn Theatre’s Sweet & Hot: The Songs of Harold Arlen at a preview on Monday, May 8 – for which I apologize. But I don’t apologize much, because this revue already has the right spirit and a host of good feelings (and good performances) exuding from it. This didn’t feel like a rehearsal; it felt like a performance, and a delightful one.

When you hear director Kevin Pieper describe the Quad City Music Guild’s production of A Christmas Carol as “a new show to the area,” it’s easy to be skeptical. Haven’t we already seen this holiday chestnut – and in this area, no less – more times than we can count? (Hell, I’ve been in it twice since 1994.)

Quad City Music Guild's "Sugar": Not Quite Wild(er) Enough

If you’ve seen Some Like It Hot, nothing that happens in the Quad City Music Guild’s Sugar will come as a surprise; this 1973 musical-comedy is almost slavishly faithful to the 1959 Billy Wilder film that inspired it. But it does feature a curlicue that makes me giggle: the tap-dancing gangsters.
