THE POW AND THE GIRL

She and her elder repel with one another at times, but it all comes out as good in the end. This is the idea to what this play is all about without attempting to provide a lesson to what is proper or what should be done about it. This notion is shown throughout. Trace Oakley’s stage direction keep the pacing in gear following this conviction in a progressive stretch.

Lemur Mom

This single person one act program written and performed by Megan Dolan, takes a situation that may become a crisis for some parents, while develops a presentation that is comical in substance, in spite of the seriousness to what her son holds emotionally. Her performance is rather bouncy, high in spirit, and shows that she is teetering close to being on the verge of having a nervous breakdown. But the trouper that she is, she rises to the occasion in the same notion that moms of this day and age holds on to!

Brilliant Traces

The dialogue and drama moves within a quick pace once it gets itself going. With an eighty minute or so running time, one won’t know what will occur next! Kiff Scholl directs this program with those same rapid intentions in mind.

It Is Done

Jeff Rack, Theatre 40’s residential set decorator, directs this play that moves in a steady clip, never letting itself go from its opening scene to its taxing conclusion. The play itself may not please everyone through its result as it doesn’t necessarily hold a traditional conclusion that one could expect. But to those that appreciate its sense of mystery, it hits the mark hard!

Special

Although the comedy is well paced and the premise of the plotting is interesting and amusing, one would have to view the originally source (The TV special) to have all what’s seen on stage to make some sense. Underground recordings of this special has been floating around for decades as made available through comic book and/or SciFi conventions and gatherings, as well as through internet portals as YouTube. But once the TV special is seen, then the ideas expressed in this show keeps its comedy in high gear.

Wink

The play itself is just as dramatic as it’s comical as it’s heartwarming! It’s not sweet, nor it’s bitter. It’s expressed as a basic case study of a honest and trusting friendship. Michael Allen Angel direct this show as a story full of characters that desire to belong. Some with specific labels, and with one (Wink) who just wants to be Wink!

PARFUMERIE

The robust cast that appears in this production is a cross blend of roles that can be humorous in nature, yet shows some dramatic interludes throughout. The comedy depicted isn’t of the “laugh-out-loud” stance, and the drama isn’t anything that can be called as “heavy”. The cast that perform these forms of dramatic comedy episodes (and vise versa) keep everything in check thanks to Brandon Ferruccio’s stage direction.

Villainy

VILLAINY shows that such multiple killings did occur back when opportunity was ripe to only those that knew what they were doing, rather than being the works of an amateur. And unlike the evil to the killings, nothing graphic is seen on stage. It’s up to the imagination of the audience to witness what was set within the mind of Holmes fulfilling his quests of power and eventually infame.

Resa Fantastiskt Mystisk

The writers that “revised” Mattsun’s original concept (Carolyn Almos, Matt Almos, Jon Beauregard, Joel Marshall, Todd Merrill, Katharine Noon, Victor Ortado, Laura Otis, and Selina Merrill), created a piece that is deep in words, deeper in concepts, and overall, a piece that really moves!

Showpony

SHOWPONY is indeed a very original comedy that keeps its pace for today’s domestic landscape, while showing the same respect that the changes of what’s right and what isn’t is making its grade. Kudos to the playwright and its on-stage cast to focus the attention on speaking for these matters without going too far (or deep) into what it’s really all about. It’s all presented with keeping things moving while focusing on the funny side! Those elements may be strange bedfellows, but it all works out to the final crowning point!
