Adam Michael Lewis and Tristan TapscottDegree of difficulty counts for a lot, so director Sean Leary and his estimable cast would earn points merely for the area existence of Martin McDonagh’s horrific fairy tale The Pillowman, the latest – and certainly riskiest – endeavor from My Verona Productions.

"I think my forte is storytelling. I just like to pretend. And any experience that I have where I believe the actor or actors are as close to pretending as possible? That's what gets me off, man. To me, that's what acting's all about." -- Tom Walljasper

Aesop’s Dynamic Duo – the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s new family musical – focuses on several of the renowned storyteller’s famous characters, and one of its first songs is entitled “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Bret Churchill plays The Boy, and the actor, with his usual exuberance and vigor, begins the number with: “I’m the Boy Who Cried Wolf / I’m the one who frightened the town / I told them the story / And, boy, it was gory / I told them the wolf ate / the Smith’s Bassett hound.”

Revenge of the Nerds: "Grease" at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse

The most telling moment in the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s splendid re-imagining of Grease is a minor one, and – like most of this production’s finest moments – nowhere to be found in the original script. (It’s actually an invention of director/choreographer Ann Nieman’s, designed to cover a scene change.) Danny (Jeremy Jonet) and Cha-Cha (Nicole Polzella) have just won Rydell High’s dance competition, yet instead of relishing the victory, Danny runs off to re-claim the heart of his true love, Sandy (Cheryl Hoffman). As the decorations come down and the stragglers depart, Cha-Cha – who has even been rebuffed by the nerdy Eugene (Mark D. Lingenfelter) – finds herself alone, and she takes a beat, gazes at the suddenly meaningless trophy in her hands, and quietly, sadly walks off stage.

Big Rewards in a "Little" Package: "Stuart Little" at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse
Written By: Mike Schulz

Stuart Little, the family musical currently being produced at the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse, is a near-perfect melding of actors and material, a musical comedy so creative and ebullient that you are instructed to secure tickets even if you don’t have any kids on hand to chaperone you. The show has the sweetness of spirit that E.B. White’s beloved tale requires, but it’s better enjoyed as an ingenious vaudeville entertainment; with little overt plotting to get in the way, Stuart Little gives audiences a bevy of delightful musical and comedy sketches, and even though some of the songs are humdrum, the presentation never is. Circa ’21’s production isn’t just a topnotch family entertainment; it’s a topnotch entertainment, period.
