Mitch Donahue, Alexander Robin Kass, Samantha Pauly, Kristin Gilbert, and Tristan Layne Tapscott in the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse's Legally Blonde: The MusicalFor our third-annual conversation on the Year in Theatre, Thom White – the Reader’s chief theatre reviewer – and I thought we’d shake things up a bit. So instead of meeting for an hours-long breakfast to discuss the area stage scene, we met for an hours-long dinner to discuss the area stage scene.

And while I managed to keep things lively by spilling a completely full glass of water not 10 minutes after sitting down, we also managed to touch on many of the varied experiences that Thom (occasionally accompanied by his partner’s daughter Madison) and/or I had during another eventful year for fans of the theatre. Pack a lunch, sit back, and dive in ... .

Kameron Cain, Sarah Butcher, and Isaac Scott in Don't Talk to the ActorsPlaywright Tom Dudzick’s Don’t Talk to the Actors seems a good fit for the actors at Scott Community College. This story of a young playwright’s first play to be produced in New York City includes a range of characters to suit many acting styles – from meek and innocent to hammy and bawdy – and director Steve Flanigin’s cast elicited many laughs during Thursday night’s handling of Dudzick’s material.

Where the Buffalo-ians Roam: "Don’t Talk to the Actors," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through June 12

Kevin Maynard, Nicholas Waldbusser, Rosemary Ocar, Mollie A. Schmelzer, and Don Hazen in Don't Talk to the ActorsWhat strikes me most about the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre’s production of Don’t Talk to the Actors is the tone created by director Susan Simosky. While playwright Tom Dudzick’s script calls for a couple of roles to perhaps be played bigger than they are, Simosky maintains a simple feel that’s more natural than feigned. Watching Thursday’s performance, it seemed as if I was looking in on real-life scenes rather than designed ones. There’s a gentle, unforced flow to the effort that seems effortless.

Whether you attend stage works sporadically or, like me, you saw 85 shows in the past year, anyone who enjoyed even one will understand that feeling of leaving a venue thinking, "Wow ... that was really good." I experienced that sensation numerous times this year, and while this list is hardly exhaustive, it'll hopefully give you an idea of just what you've been missing if you missed out on 2009's offerings.

Nicholas Charles Waldbusser, Ryan Mosher-Ohr, Ryan Anderson, Angela Rathman, and Kevin Maynard in The Last Mass at St. Casimir'sOver my many years of theatre-going, there isn't a stage trilogy I've enjoyed quite the way I've enjoyed the Pazinski-family comedies of author Tom Dudzick, a trio of lightly philosophical, understatedly touching, devastatingly funny plays that began with 1994's Over the Tavern and continued with 1998's King o' the Moon.

And I don't think I've ever loved a stage production quite the way I love the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's current The Last Mass at St. Casimir's, the climactic chapter (written in 2002) not only in Dudzick's trilogy, but in Richmond Hill's, as Geneseo's Barn Theatre produced Over the Tavern in the summer of 2005, and King o' the Moon in the summer of 2007.
