The course of true love never did run smooth, but a good Shakespeare play often does. That is my take away from a recently viewing of Gamut Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. This show is fresh, fun, and funny. The remarkable 24 character show was performed by 14 actors, which calls for a lot of double and even triple billing.

I have been blessed with being involved in theatre for 64 years and have critiqued the arts for 35 years. Those of a certain age will remember News Journal theatre critics Phil Crossland and Otto Dekom of the 60’s through 90’s. Phil loved every show he ever saw and every actor on stage. We all wanted to be reviewed by him. On the other hand, the antagonistic Otto terrorized community theatre performers, often delivering cruel, personal attacks.

If playwright Matthew Lombardo's searing look at actress Tallulah Bankhead in Looped was the main course, then his spicy confection about Cindy Lou Who in Who's Holiday! - playing this December at The Human Race - is the decadent dessert we have been waiting for. Called a 'raunchy riff on Dr. Seuss,' Who's Holiday! is a wildly funny and heartfelt adult-only comedy about grown-up Cindy Lou Who, as she recalls that Christmas Eve when she first met the Grinch and the twisted turn of events her life has since taken. Who's Holiday! will fill the Loft Theatre with laughter, December 2 - 19, 2021.
