Raise that curtain.
QUICK HIT: The last play of the 2013 season at Timber Lake Playhouse in Mt. Carroll is the perfect ending to a wonderful season. In fact a "'S Wonderful" season. Sorry, had to do that. The last play is titled "'S Wonderful: The New Gershwin Musical." The subtle gestures, the songs and the sensational dancing sets the audience up for a wonderful (there's that word again) trip down memory lane. It takes you on a journey by using the song and dance as its storytelling. Travel along to five different destinations, including 1940s Hollywood, 1920s New York, 1930s Paris, 1950s New Orleans and the present day. To get there, it takes a cast. And these five get the job done. They are Genna-Paige Kanago, Sarah Larson, Zak McMahon, Lexie Plath and Tim Wessel. They weave in and out of these stories with poise and perfection. Two guys, three woman. The women are sexy, sultry, and very talented, plus upbeat and energetic, too. And they have been all season. A potent mix of beauty and talent. Call 815-244-2035. It runs through Sunday, Aug. 25.
