James Driscoll and Sara Laufer in A 1940s Radio Christmas CarolThere are some delightful moments in Quad City Music Guild’s holiday production A 1940s Radio Christmas Carol, including composer David Wohl’s fantastic arrangements of classic carols, and inspired performances by some of the cast members portraying radio actors. When neither of these elements are present, there’s also scenic designer Harold Truitt’s layered, multi-level set with a plethora of pleasing décor, as well as costume designer Heidi Pedersen’s impeccably-tailored period ensembles. It also boasts the fun of watching several local acting dynamos share the stage together.

Tom Naab, Jackie Skiles, and Stephanie Naab in The Last RomanceThe Richmond Hill Barn Theatre's The Last Romance is, for the most part, a refreshingly lighthearted romantic comedy. Watching Friday’s performance, I was delighted not only with much of playwright Joe DiPietro’s script, but also with the tempo of director Tom Morrow’s production. The characters' conversations are quickly paced, though not unnaturally so, and maintain the piece's joyful energy, but Morrow also gives his cast moments to breathe when appropriate, allowing the play's emotions and humor to sink in before the fast-talking exchanges continue.

One-Hundred-Word Moments in Time: Thom White, and a Few Others, on the Year in Theatre

Cara Chumbley, Lora Adams, Brad Hauskins, and Rachelle Walljasper in Things My Mother Taught MeAnother year of area stage productions has come and gone, and wanting to try something different this December, Reader theatre reviewer Thom White and I thought we’d bypass our traditional, end-of-year postmortem in favor of an alternate approach: requesting 100-words-or-fewer submissions from our readers on what people found particularly memorable about the 2013 stage scene. “It’ll be something new!” we thought. “It’ll be exciting! It’ll be filled with fresh voices that aren’t ours!” And, I must admit, we were dazzled with the overall response.

Well, “dazzled” may be overstating it.

Hmmm ... what’s the word I’m looking for ... ?

“Mortified,” maybe ... ?

Boo! Hiss! Hooray!: "The Curse of an Aching Heart: Or, Trapped in the Spider's Web," at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre through July 21

Jackie Patterson, Jackie Skiles, and Sarah Ade in The Curse of an Aching Heart: Or, Trapped in the Spider's WebSo far as melodramas go, The Curse of an Aching Heart: Or, Trapped in the Spider's Web is, for me, one of the more tolerable and entertaining works in its genre. Not being a fan of this brand of comedy, I still laughed quite a bit during Thursday’s performance at the Richmond Hill Barn Theatre, as playwright Herbert Swayne’s clever wit and director Tom Morrow’s pleasingly on-the-verge-of-over-dramatic tone made for an amusing night of comedy.

Hitchcocked: "The 39 Steps," at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre through September 16

Jason Platt and Ed Villarreal in The 39 StepsJudging by Friday’s performance of The 39 Steps at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre, it’s apparent that director Tom Morrow likes sight gags and British humor. He handles playwright Patrick Barlow's comically melodramatic take on the 1915 spy thriller – and Alfred Hitchcock's 1935 film – with care, avoiding over-the-top staging but highlighting the humor in ways that elicit a lot of laughs. (Whereas overselling the gags would likely elicit groans.)
