the Holly Jolly Christmas ensembleNo show that opens with 10 sharply dressed, great-looking, terrifically talented performers dancing a spirited tap number can be all that bad, which is a good thing for Holly Jolly Christmas, the musical revue currently playing at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse. Considering, however, that the production has no loftier purposes beyond entertaining crowds with familiar holiday tunes and spreading a little yuletide cheer, I think audiences could be easily forgiven for turning to their theatre-going companions after the curtain call and saying, "Well, that was nice... but what the hell was it?"

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

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.

Christmas from the Heart, which opens the Circa ’21 Dinner Playhouse’s 29th season, is a holiday-themed musical revue, and as such, it has a built-in advantage that many stage works don’t: Audiences don’t make many demands of it. When presented with a piece of this sort – in which the production is essentially an excuse for linking together a diverse group of carols and holiday hits – no one really cares what the story is about or whether the characters have any depth; all we ask is that the numbers are well-sung and that the show maintains a lively pace, and if it’s funny or touching or particularly well-designed, those are just added bonuses.
