Audience: Thomas Tileston

Jul

The Comedy of Errors

A young, hi-energy ensemble grabs the audience from the beginning and never lets go. It's a whirlwind of Murphy's Law adventure where anything that can go wrong will and at hurricane pace. Two sets of humorously incompetent identical twins blunder from one site gag to another. It's a mix of Month Python and Keystone Cops all set in iambic pentameter with some au courant comedy tossed in. At one point Dromoio of Ephesus (Nikki Knupp) successfully engages some audience youngsters in a ‘which way did they go' routine that was hilarious. This is a super fun show for kids of all ages.

The Foreigner

The Foreigner is one of the best from Little Fish Theatre and Little Fish consistently puts on great shows! The first thing you notice is the impressive set. As the show progresses, the set becomes more impressive with its functionality. The chemistry among Charlie Baker (David Lawrence), Ellar Simms (Trip Langley) and Catherine Simms (Heather Tyler) is an absolute pleasure that needs to be experienced. The three establish a metronomic pace that increasingly builds in pace, intensity and laughs. Betty Meeks (Madeleine Drake) and Froggy (Don Schlossman) add fuel to this fire with insanely funny over-the-top bits. They drive Charlie, Ellar and Catherine closer and cement their bond. And of course, you wouldn't have the comedy without the villains. The Rev David Marshall Lee (Chance Dean) is just plain nasty mean! Owen Musser (Gregg Lawrence) is the dumb, bullying KKK clansman. They give Charlie, Ellar and Catherine the hilarious ammunition to reign justice over evil. In the end, you cheer loudly as Rev David and Owen both get what's coming!

The Christians

A strong cast comes together in a thought-provoking drama that shatters the foundation of Christian belief. Pastor Paul (Peter Hilton) divides the congregation with an ill-timed sermon that contradicts Christianity at its core. From there, each character, troubled and conflicted by the new direction coming from the pulpit challenge Pastor Paul. Emotions are deep and honest. Associate Pastor Joshua (Jeff Rolfe Jr.) and congregant Jenny (Cindy Cisneros) deliver poignantly emotional pleas that hit hard. Jenny, Pastor Paul's wife (Silvana Gargione) is torn between the love for and betrayal of her husband. Jay, a church elder, is forced to make hard business decisions when faced with the loss of congregation and loss of church revenues. All-in-all a strong drama that absorbs the audience.

Greater Tuna

The two actors did a fantastic job. The individual skits were not always that entertaining. The script lacked excitement.

BELLEVILLE

Great acting. Story lacked credibility. Never really believed the story line or character development
