Tom Swenson and Daniel Ferguson Haughey in The Chronicles of Lincoln and GrantThe District Theatre’s The Chronicles of Lincoln & Grant is an historical account of the Civil War from the perspectives of two of the country’s leaders: President Abraham Lincoln and General Ulysses S. Grant. However, instead of discussing events from the actual war (though they occasionally do), the characters in this two-person play mostly share stories of their personal experiences leading up to, during, and following the war.

Tom Swenson and Bryan Lopez in Visiting Mr. GreenThe plot of playwright Jeff Baron’s Visiting Mr. Green is quite simple and predictable. And Baron’s script is not as poignant as it seems to have been meant to be, especially since its message of accepting people’s differences – particularly the differences presented in this play – has been heard before, and in far more effective ways. That being said, the Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s production of Baron’s work is truly touching, with its strong sentimentality helping to disguise the play’s weaknesses.

Jim Driscoll, Stephanie Moeller, John Weigandt (foreground), Alec Peterson, and Travis Hedman (background) in Treasure IslandThe Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s take on the classic Robert Louis Stevenson adventure novel Treasure Island – adapted for the stage by Ken Ludwig – certainly kicks off with a dynamic start. Director, lighting director, and set designer Jennifer Kingry’s impressive recreation of a lightning storm is ominous and tense, as is the first scene aboard a pirate ship, and if the play’s pirates portray any sense of threat, it is in these opening minutes, as they snarl at and descend upon a perceived traitor and treasure-map thief. The storm ends, however, as does the scene, and the rest of the play lacks the excitement set up at the start.
