The Last Romance at River Street Playhouse (CVLT)

Chagrin Valley Little Theatre is not so little anymore. The present production of THE LAST ROMANCE by Joe DiPietro is produced at the River Street Playhouse, right next door to the main theatre. Voila, a theatre complex right beside the falls. The play is very funny and will be a delight for an older crowd, because it treats the mature characters as alive and capable of love. No retirement homes here, just great comedic gold from area veterans that prove that picking up chicks is not just for the young. But this journey also includes issues of family, trust and the heartbreaking reality of life as we age gracefully with our partner, or without.

This is the story of Ralph (CVLT vet Don Edelman), a widower in his senior years, who spots the slightly younger Carol (Mary Jane Nottage) walking her Chihuahua, Diesel, at the local dog park. Impressed with the elegant and distant woman, Ralph decides to take a chance on love one more time by pursuing her. His lonely sister and caretaker, Rose (Margo Parker), does not approve. Carol isn’t particularly interested in Ralph at first, but they soon bond as Ralph tells her about his missed chance to sing for the Metropolitan Opera (with vocalist Andrew Kondik appearing as young Ralph), and Carol tells of her romance–however, leaving out an important part. There are secrets to be revealed about both of them…will their relationship blossom? THE LAST ROMANCE is a heartwarming comedy about life, loss, and the transformative power of love.

Cindee Catalano-Edelman does a fine job as a first time director. She is blessed with three veteran actors, and a young up and coming vocalist blessed with a beautiful voice.

The main actors in this production are a treasure chest of bravado. Don Edelman is a delight as Ralph. A gifted actor, he is smooth as silk as he navigates meeting a new woman who spikes his interest, while cleverly peeling away the wall built up around his love interest. Parker makes Rose a lovable sisterly curmudgeon with gruff and realistic emotion when necessary. She is a blast when taking control of the situation and “telling it like it is.” Nottage is radiant as Carol, delivering a funny, confident layered performance. Watching her take on her potential suitor, his over protective sister and her own truth is a delight. Kondik, described only as “Young Man,” performs his opera vignettes with confidence and a clear and confident voice. And, belting out opera at 2 in the afternoon should be worth applause as well, which he received throughout the performance.

Special shout out to Peaches, the dog playing Diesel, who was incredibly behaved and cute as all get out.

Technical elements were great for an intimate space.  Stage Manager Karen Paktinat called a great show. Light and Sound design James Barron adding just the right amount of atmosphere and barks. Candy Clemson and Marge Zellmer create a cozy bench habitat. Edmond Wolff does a great job of pulling it all together as Tech Director.

KIN at Dobama Theatre

Kin

Boy meets Girl. It is such a short, sweet sentence that seems to be so simple, but who the hell are we kidding? Each boy and girl comes with family, friends, baggage, fears, hopes, dreams, medical problems, angst, occasional rash and, well, need I go on? Most of the fun stuff of relationships comes from our family members and our emotional friends. Can I get an Amen in here? But along this ride come comedic journeys and moments of deep resolve and depth. I found all of that in the recent production of “Kin” by Bathsheba Doran currently playing at Dobama Theatre. Beautifully directed by Shannon Sindelar, this play is funny and fascinating as it glides through two lives coming together with a series of vignettes that weave a love story with all the trappings involved. It is like watching all the stories at a Thanksgiving dinner, where you are blessed and reminded why it should only happen once a year.

This play features a fierce cast of players at the top of their game, and technical elements that haven’t been seen in Cleveland for a long, long time. I will rave about that later on. But these actors!  Elana Kepner* plays Anna, the “girl” of this play. Kepner is sublime, as she navigates through an overzealous best friend, a literary creation with a dangerous title, dealing with family matters, and finding, possibly, true love. She is a pleasure to watch and becomes a compelling thread throughout this fabulous story. As her father, Pete Ferry* (Adam) is terrific. He has a dashing John Wayne command of the stage and is wonderful at showing the damaged but loving sides of his character, allowing a flawed character to come back and reemerge a better man. Then we come to Helena, played with frenetic brilliance by Leighann Delorenzo. Delorenzo plays the heck out of this character so well, if she were to show up at Pamplona, the bulls would run the other way. But there is also a beautiful undercurrent of desperation that keeps Helena interesting and fun to watch.

Geoff Knox as Sean, the “boy” of this piece, is terrific. With athletic looks intact, Knox brings brooding electricity to his scenes, not overdoing anything, but centering his character in truth and focusing on achieving his desires to move past love and reacquire it. His mother Linda, as played by Lenne Snively*, is a treasure. Supreme confidence and emotionally open about what haunts her and what she wants for her son. Snively clearly depicts all the character aspects of having a son away, dealing with a tragic past, and accepting what the future holds. As Uncle Max, Bob Keefe deserves a life time achievement award for getting through the treadmill scene in one piece. Trust me, it is a scream. Keefe is awesome, whether slinging Jameson with sis or sharing advice with the nephew. Great stuff.

David Bugher plays two roles in this piece. We meet him first as Simon, and boy do we meet him: giving one of the funniest “I am breaking up with you” speeches ever. And a lot has to do with his deft comedic timing. Too funny. Then he pops up again, gun in hand, as Gideon, a hunter who saves Helena from a bear, which is another great comedic bookend. There is even a moment of tenderness thrown in for good measure. Great work. Jeanne Task is in top form as she brings humor and honesty to Kay, the other woman in Adam’s life. Task takes on a reserved persona but still generates laughs, and touches your heart with simple, beautiful acting. And then there is Rachel Lee Kolis as Sean’s ex, Rachel. It is rare that an actor has one scene but it is so honest and brilliant that you can’t forget the performance. That is the case with this young actress. It was a privilege to watch such purity of acting.

And speaking of fabulous, the technical elements of this show are just that. WOW. Particularly, the projection effects designed by Mike Tutaj are the coolest thing I have ever seen in Cleveland. I don’t want to spoil anything by describing what happens to the set, but you have to see this fine artistry. Scenic Designer Tiffany Scriber produces a fascinating set that ignites when lit. Marcus Dana’s Lighting Design is terrific as usual. Costume Designer Jenniver Sparano is in top form. Sound Designer Richard Ingraham sounds terrific. (See what I did there?) Technical Director David Tilk did an excellent job of pulling all the elements together. Kudos to Stage Managers Megan Mingus and Joel Rathbone for calling a great show. I also understand the technical assistants did some yeoman work on this piece, so congrats to Mary Rathell, Bryan Ritchey, and Jeremy Dobbins.

This is one hell of a way to end a season.

Informed Consent at Cleveland Play House for the New Theatre Festival

Informed Consent

It is time to break new ground at Cleveland Play House (CPH). To empower that mission comes the CPH “New Ground Theatre Festival,” which showcases new theatrical works and play readings from nationally recognized artists.  The first offering is the fascinating “Informed Consent” by Deborah Zoe Laufer, co-produced with Geva Theatre Center; half the cost and twice the thrill. Beautifully directed by Sean Daniels, this play tackles questions of Bio-ethics. As a person, would you want to know your genetic defect? As a medical professional, should you tell someone they have a genetic defect, when in fact the reason they are there is for something else? And when you sign that paper before you take a blood test, what are you really consenting to?

The story which examines these questions follows Jillian (Jessica Wortham), a genetic anthropologist who finds herself on a frantic journey to find a cure for early onset Alzheimer’s. She has learned she has inherited the defective gene, and she wants to solve the problem to prevent passing it on to her children. At the same time, she is asked by her colleague, social anthropologist Ken (Gilbert Cruz) to assist in a study of the isolated Havasupai Tribe, who is dying out due to type 2 diabetes. In her overzealous quest for self preservation and medical research, she makes some dire decisions. As a result, she sets a collision course with Ken, her husband Graham (Fajer Al-Kaisi), the tribe contact and spokeswoman Arella (Larissa FastHorse), and Dean Hagen (Tina Fabrique). It is a 90-minutes-plus journey that is fascinating.

We find a company of actors spread out on a “baked earth” set, (Scenic Designer Michael Raiford), which propels us to desert essence, representing the base of the Grand Canyon, where the Havasupai Tribe resides. A genetic code consisting of lit boxes permeates the set. With the ability to change colors and function as prop containers, the set tells the story all on its own. Add in effective lighting (Brian J. Lilienthal), clear sound (Matt Callahan), and perfect costumes (Amanda L. Doherty), and we are ready to get our genetics on!

The cast is led by Wortham, who embodies Jillian with excellent choices. Wortham handles the frantic pace and unstoppable desire with flawless execution. She is both funny and intense. Al-Kaisi is so realistic as the husband and almost full-time daddy. He brings a beautiful awareness to Graham, and the scene where the couple meets for the first time is hilarious. Great work.  FastHorse is powerful as the tribe spokeswoman. She provides a regal personae bathed in tradition and pride, and deft execution of her characters. Cruz has all the right moves within his characters. Whether perfectly playing the social anthropologist or the lawyer, he is on target and brings the passion when called on to do so. Fabrique is funny, stern when needed, and has a beautiful voice. All combine to make a huge contribution to the evening within Laufer’s characters.

Kudos to playwright on being able to generate an excellent play about bio-ethics and still make it funny. The blend results are a beautiful and fulfilling evening of theatre. And let’s not forget Stage Manager Jennifer Matheson Collins for calling a great show.

Moonlight and Magnolias at Workshop Players Theatre

“Gone With The Wind” is one of my favorite movies. I can’t imagine how this classic movie could be produced today without the Fed printing more money. Legendary performances and one of the most famous “see ya later“ lines in cinematic history. Playwright Ron Hutchinson was also impressed by the movie but, more importantly, how it was made, so he was inspired to create “Moonlight and Magnolias.” The scenario focuses on producer David O. Selznick (Jonathan McCleery), who has fired the original director of “Gone With The Wind” and is in need of a script revision. He has five days to rewrite and begin shooting or the production will shut down. Enter Victor Fleming (Dennis Runkle) to direct and screenwriter Ben Hecht (Dale Hruska) to rewrite the script. Throw in a few problems, like Hecht hasn’t read the book, Fleming is still working on “The Wizard of Oz”, and the fact that it is hard to get anyone to agree on anything. How does Selznick solve that problem? Simple. Just lock the door and have your secretary, Miss Poppenghul (Kristina Rivera), hold your calls, and bring in a steady supply of bananas and peanuts. Apparently, fiber is a key ingredient to success. But, within those five days, a lot of hilarious and poignant moments come together to achieve the goal.

At the helm of this mockumentary is Brad Sales. He pulls together a solid cast of professional crazies to set this script in action. This collection of community theatre veterans turns in a fun evening of theatre-in-the-round for a packed house. Sales uses a great sense of movement and staging to ensure all sides are thoroughly entertained.

McCleery is the anchor of the ship of brilliant foolishness. He navigates the script with plenty of deft choices as his character handles egos and deadlines. He is a blustering vehicle of somewhat controlled chaos and pathos. Hruska’s madness can be measured by the state of his hair. He starts off together and somewhat flustered with the task, and then turns into a hot mess of talent and comic frustration. Runkle is a towering figure of comic gold. Watching him interpret the female characters is a true delight. With great confidence, timing, and a dead pan mug that triggers laughter all night long. Rivera brings great comedic energy as Miss Poppenghul. It would not surprise me if she ended up with a tattoo which read “Yes, Mr. Selznick” after the run. Delightfully, somehow Rivera finds different ways to say that one line that always keeps it fresh and funny. And, her unkempt chassis at the end is a blast, reflecting the harried journey they have all been through.

There were some distractions. The script itself seems to overplay the same arguments over and over again. The cast fell into a “line-reaction-line-reaction” pattern that slowed the pace unnecessarily. There were some delays in the sound and fade blackouts in the scene-ending tableaus. I expect as the run continues, these will tighten and resolve themselves.

The production team put in some great work: Stage Manager Kathy Whitmore, Scenic Designer Brad Sales (doing double duty), Costume Designer Judie May (getting the looks just right, totally digging Rivera’s costumes), Lighting Designer Matt Gould, and Sound Designers Pat and Joe Price.

Theatre-in-the-round is a challenging endeavor, and Workshop did a fine homage.

Love in Pieces by Sarah Morton

Image

Photo: Carrie Williams & David Hansen

There is something wonderful about mystery, especially when it comes in the form of a random email inviting you to be a guest at a random destination for an immersive play experience. And what wondrous rewards await the immersed as your consciousness is transformed by being surrounded by a virtual and artistic environment that is literally inches away from you. That was my experience tonight as I took a house tour from top to bottom, which included watching famous historical couples dealing with a variety of situations as presented in “Love in Pieces” by Sarah Morton.

This delicious recipe for adventure was written in 1997 by playwright, actor, educator, and activist Morton and, after winning the Chilcote award, the play was given a full production at Cleveland Public Theatre. Tonight, artistically marinated artists take the piece for a physical and visual ride.

The evening is hosted by Ellen Nicole Morales. The guides for the tour are Elaine Feagler, Chennelle Bryant-Harris, Khaki Herman, and Michael Silverstein. We go in groups of three, predetermined by our playing card symbol. I was a Diamond. Thank you. Donning a mask, our silence is requested and it begins.

You have no program, so there is no way to know what you are going to encounter. Each scene is directed by a “Master of Scene.” Our first destination is the basement, where we meet Orpheus (Andrew Gombas) and Eurydice (Llewie Nunez). The eerily lit basement provides an ethereal environment for these lovers to kick some “Don’t look at me, because I’m beautiful” ass.  Both actors display deft representations of angst for the ages and heartbreaking realness that sometimes love comes with a heavy price. David Hansen provides Master of Scene. The after-party is held in the kitchen, where we dance with each other to the beautiful voiced Gombas hauntingly drifting up through the stairwell partnered with a folk guitar.

In the attic awaits Cupid (Christopher Sanders) and Psyche (Katelyn Cornelius). Lit by cellphone light, the pair is painfully effective at displaying a tortured love, and an attempt to repair wingless ambition with beautiful, emotional connections. Master of Scene is Tim Pringpuangkeo (the best last name ever).

Master of Scene Michael Silverstein ignites the raucous pair of the evening, Antony (David Hansen) and Cleopatra (Carrie Williams). Ok, these two are gold. Watching the fiery Williams try to solve Antony’s “engine” problem is a scream. And Hansen kills it as he becomes an accidental drag queen which apparently prevents him from having to order Viagra online. I have to have a drink with this couple.

We head into the bathroom as Master of Scene Chennelle Bryant-Harris present Laertes (Brett Radke) and Ophelia (Brittany Nicole Gaul). This scene is physically the bravest of all, with Gaul bearing all in emotion, acting and herself. Gaul is fierce, as is Radke who provides an interesting consort with intelligent interplay. Incredible fearless work.

A shout out to Musicians Andrew Wise (Piano) and Liam McMillin (Bass) for providing some classy jazz infusion to the evening.

This is a great unexpected experience. Immerse yourself whenever you can.

Ghosts performed at Oberlin College Theater

Henrik Johan Ibsen was a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. He is often referred to as “the father of realism. His major works include “Peer Gynt,” “An Enemy of the People,” “A Doll’s House,” “Hedda Gabler,” and “Ghosts,” which just played this weekend at Oberlin College Theater, translated by Rolf Fjelde,  and directed by the brilliant Matthew Wright.

Several of Ibsen’s plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theatre was required to model strict morals of family life and propriety. Ibsen’s work utilizes a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality, conditions that have hardly changed in today’s society. And, under the creative team led by Wright (Associate Director, Associate Prefessor of Theatre), this collegiate production of “Ghosts” was spectacular.

The story you say?  Well, “Ghosts” would be a grand exhibit in the television series Ibsen Abbey. Helen Alving (Katy Early) is about to dedicate an orphanage she has built in the memory of her dead husband, Captain Alving. She reveals to her spiritual advisor, Pastor Manders (Brian Gale), that she has hidden the evils of her marriage, and has built the orphanage to deplete her husband’s wealth so that their son, Oswald, might not inherit anything from him. Pastor Manders had previously advised her to return to her husband despite his philandering, and she followed his advice in the belief that her love for her husband would eventually reform him. However, her husband’s philandering continued until his death, and Mrs. Alving was unable to leave him prior to his death for fear of being shunned by the community. Moving among them all is Jacob Engstrand (Danny Prikazsky), a carpenter working on the orphanage, who not only has plans of his own, but also has Regina thinking that he is her father. SPOILER ALERT: During the action of the play she discovers that her son Oswald (Colin Wulff), whom she had sent away so that he would not be corrupted by his father, is suffering from inherited syphilis, and has fallen in love with Regina Engstrand (Sarah Rosengarten), Mrs. Alving’s maid, who is revealed to be an illegitimate daughter of Captain Alving, and thereby Oswald’s own half-sister. The play concludes with Mrs. Alving having to decide whether or not to euthanize her son Oswald in accordance with his wishes. Her choice is left unknown.

The play opens to haunting music (Designer Jonathan Maag and Music Consultant Early), and then dramatic lighting (Designer Jeremy K. Benjamin) gradually rises on a gorgeous set (Designer Christopher McCollum). Beautiful depth and detail immediately take hold of our senses, as a macabre presentation of characters appear before us, and stimulates our intellect to devour “what the Sam hill?” is about to happen to us.

Early is full of blistering characterization. Watch her hold on to the moral high ground, bury secrets, and navigate family histrionics, all done with excellent precision and execution. Gale pastorally glides through the piece with committed strength and moral fiber, and delicately showing the cracks in the armor, with deft choices. Wulff presents a disturbing descent into hell, producing an arc of character that is fascinating to watch, and heartbreaking to bear witness to his own solution. Rosengarten is a feisty presence with complete command of her nature, embodying her character with inherited strength and guts. Prikazsky does creepy and slimy well, but I hear he is a great guy. He creates a limping shell of a man, whose conniving is brought forth with sublime acting.

Director Wright delivers this classic with adept pace, with three acts that feel like two, guiding these future artists with skill and editing prowess. It is a masterful evening, aided by the glorious costume design of Chris Flaharty. Amazing work.

Kudos to Assistant Director Abigail Barr, and the trio of Stage managers bringing this piece to life on the outside and inside: Calling a great show was Production Stage Manager Julia Perez, and her assistants Hannah Montgomery, and Andrew Hartley.

The Oberlin theater productions must be put on the “go see” list of any aspiring actor. It is a beautiful environment to take in, and the experience will greatly empower and enlighten you as an artist. Be sure to check out the summer festival season.
