Take an 1880 short novel by Henry James, filter it through a 1947 script by Ruth and Augustus Goetz (who also wrote the 1949 screenplay that starred Olivia de Haviland and Montgomery Clift), and fill the stage with a Victorian richness and intense performances, and you have the latest 2nd Space offering by the Good Company Players, The Heiress, which runs through June 17.

Last weekend was a weekend of contrasts for me-I saw the farcical comedy Noises Off in Reedley, and the very dark and serious play, The Crucible, in Visalia at the College of the Sequoias.

Nana’s Naughty Knickers, a delightful farce, bursts onto the Ice House stage on Friday, April 13, with gaiety for all. Even the title makes you smile, and that’s just the beginning.

This has become my year of changing opinions. I always hated the song “Tomorrow” from Annie because I associated it with small children singing loudly off-key…until I saw the Good Company Players’ production, and now I love it. Now, I have to admit something I never expected to say…Mamma Mia! is a great show!

I saw the Woody Allen movie Bullets Over Broadway many years ago, and I really enjoyed it. So when I saw that COS in Visalia was doing the musical stage version I couldn’t wait to see it.
