This week, Christian looks back at four underrated shows from the 2013 theater season.

Space Voyage: The Musical Frontier

By Nicholas Connors and Quinn Elmer

Directed by Amanda Connors

Come check out InterMission Theatre's World Premiere production!

'Space Voyage: The Musical Frontier' is a new full scale, 2-act musical that parodies classic science fiction. With a wholly original plot and story, this hilarious musical follows the bumbling Captain David Drake and his crew aboard the U.S.S. Derivative as they try to save the galaxy from one of its greatest threats. The musical features original music and lyrics by UW-Madison student Nicholas Connors as well as a script co-written by fellow undergraduate Quinn Elmer and Connors.

Produced by InterMission Theatre at Bartell Theater's Drury Stage, 113 E. Mifflin St., Madison

Are We Delicious? The Play?

By Lee Waldhart, Scott Stanley, Matt Sloan, Christian Neuhaus, Kelly Maxwell, Jenny Maahs, Odari Kimani, Erin Baal

Directed by Tony Trout, William Bolz

Are We Delicious? is bold, fresh, fast-paced fun.

We take 8 organically grown scripts and 8 free-range performers, add freshly squeezed adrenaline, put in a pressure cooker for one week and see what we get.

Care for a taste?

July 2013 ensemble:
Lee Waldhart, Scott Stanley, Matt Sloan, Christian Neuhaus, Kelly Maxwell, Jenny Maahs, Odari Kimani, Erin Baal

Produced by Are We Delicious? at Bartell Theatre's Evjue Stage, 113 E. Mifflin St., Madison

The Stoughton Village Players is pleased to announce audition and production dates for our fall musical, "Company.” Stephen Sondheim's brilliant groundbreaking study of love, friendship, marriage, isolation and commitment offers excellent singing/acting roles for 14 performers, 8 women and 6 men, approximate age range mid twenties to mid forties.

The Eight - Reindeer Monologues

By Jeff Goode

A dark, dark Christmas comedy. Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment.
As mass media descends upon the event, the other members of the sleigh team demand to share their perspectives, and a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, which seems to implicate everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself.

With each deer's confession, the truth behind the shocking allegations becomes clearer and clearer. ...and murkier and murkier.

Produced by know better productions at Broom Street Theater, 1119 Williamson Street, Madison

The Pain And The Itch

By Bruce Norris

Directed by George Gonzalez

During a holiday gathering with Clay and Kelly's extended family, their daughter’s nasty genital itch serves as a catalyst to reveal uncomfortable truths, including fraternal hatred, infidelity, a failed marriage, and venereal disease. As the story is narrated to their visitor, his relationship to the events become clear – as does the emptiness of the families supposed benevolence and sensitivity.
