Brandon Jess Ford, Dryden Meints, and Hanah Nardone in Boeing-BoeingEven if you entered the Timber Lake Playhouse’s Boeing-Boeing unaware that author Marc Camoletti’s play was a farcical comedy – its elbow-in-the-ribs title somehow not divulging that information – all it would take is one look at Nathan Dahlkemper’s scenic design to know that some serious slapstick was bound to be in store.

the Footloose ensembleThe inherent danger in seeing any production of Footloose, whether on stage or screen, is that you risk having those maddeningly catchy pop tunes trapped in your brain for days. I’m therefore pleased to report that, less than 72 hours after attending the Timber Lake Playhouse’s speedy and sprightly take on the musical, I no longer have “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” “Holding Out for a Hero,” and the rest playing in an endless mental loop. It’s actually the performances by Karl Hamilton and Elizabeth Haley that I can’t get out of my head.

Erica Stephan, Dreiden Thomas Meints, Judy Knudtson, Sharriese Hamilton, and Andrew Way in WorkingBased on the justly celebrated 1974 nonfiction by Studs Terkel, the musical Working is a two-act series of vignettes on the joys and frustrations of professional life, and the search for satisfaction in even the most mundane of careers. It’s somewhat ironic, then, that in the Timber Lake Playhouse’s current, wholly engaging, superbly performed production of the show, the most effective segment in it concerns a man who actually doesn’t work for a living.

Fire and Dice: "Guys & Dolls," at the Timber Lake Playhouse through June 17

Guys & Dolls ensemble membersOn any given day, the musical I consider my all-time favorite will either be Sweeney Todd or Guys & Dolls ... unless that day is the day after I’ve seen a production of Guys & Dolls, in which case it’s the clear winner. Heaven knows there are plenty of entertaining, tune-filled warhorses from Broadway’s golden era, but do any of them have the effervescent fizz and pop of composer/lyricist Frank Loesser’s 1950 triumph, a beautifully constructed musical comedy so funny and clever and sweet that it can keep you happy and humming for hours – like, 100 hours – after it ends?
