Review: Mamma Mia at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas

"Mamma Mia" returned to the PAC stage Tuesday, November 3rd in front of a full house. The Broadway musical, which features the music of ABBA, is definitely a crowd-pleaser. Worldwide, over 60 million people have seen the hit musical since its 1999 debut.

The show is about a young girl who is about to be married. The child of a single mother, Sophia has always wondered who her father was. After discovering her mother’s 1979 journal, she narrowed it down to three suspects and invited them to the wedding. As the story unfolds, it blossoms into a decades-long lost-love story between Sophia’s mother and one of the potential fathers.

It’s fascinating how a band’s lyrics, written decades earlier and without a thought of this musical in mind, can combine to tell such a fun and loving tale. I could see heads nodding and toes tapping during the hit songs like “Dancing Queen,” “SOS,” and “Take a Chance on Me.”

Personally, I felt like the cast lacked the chemistry and charisma I expected from a nationally-touring company, but a quick read through the Playbill shows that for most of the actors, this is their first national gig. They just need a little time. I saw plenty of positive comments on Facebook following the show, so I know the audience did not walk away disappointed.

Review: Kamikaze Fireflies at Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas

“An acrobatic act of some kind.”

With a setup like that, what can you expect from a show? Plenty, as it turns out. 

Kamikaze Fireflies, a one-hour show at Kent State University’s Performing Arts Center on October 15th, was a fantastic, entertaining show the audience seemed sorry to see end. Rob Williams and Casey Martin filled the hour with juggling knives from atop stacked chairs, rolling across the stage in a huge wheel while drinking water, climbing audience members to stand on their shoulders, and escaping from straight jackets.

Williams explained: “We’re a sort of Vaudeville act in a true sense, not as most people think of Vaudeville.” The show harkens back to a time when you might see anything from touring acts, which is just what Kamikaze Fireflies is. They tour the world, doing ren-fairs and television, with memorable turns on America’s Got Talent.

At one point, they brought a volunteer from the audience onstage to eat a baloney sandwich made entirely with Williams’ feet— lettuce, mustard, pickle, all assembled with just his toes. Like a good sport, the reluctant woman bit into the sandwich while Williams applauded—with his feet.
Martin was astonishing in her abilities to thrill with juggling and acrobatics.

The show wound up with a remarkable spinning light performance featuring highlights from numerous Disney films. 

You might see anything, indeed.
