Le Petomane: Anatomy of a Fartiste
It might be hard to imagine that a story about a man who breaks wind for fame and fortune could be called "sweet," but Tongue and Groove Theatre's original musical Le Petomane: Anatomy of a Fartiste, about the extraordinary French vaudevillian Joseph Pujol, combines good humor, fun song, bawdy dance, and just enough ribaldry to make for an engaging theatrical show.

The Head, Hands, and Toe Show: Where's the Rest of Me?
With The Heads, Hands, and Toe Show, Tongue and Groove Theatre literally takes out the middle, man, using low-tech effects to create a series of movement pieces where only the arms, feet, and heads of the performers are visible, and the overall effect is simple fun.
"...and grand. From musical trio to nontorsoed company, director David Yeakle has his ensemble comfortably confident and ready to..."

Eggheads
Eggheads pays fond tribute to the cinematic screwball comedies of the 1930s, and though the specific style of those comedies was old decades before the actors in Tongue and Groove Theatre's production were born, they breezed through it, cracking wise and slinging slang, as nimbly as Busby Berkeley chorines tapping down 42nd Street.
"...What follows in this script, adapted by David Yeakle from an unproduced screenplay by Blessing on the..."

Pinocchio Commedia: I'm Your Puppet ... Still
The familiar misadventures of the wooden puppet who wants to be real get a high-spirited comic treatment in JohnnySimons' Pinocchio Commedia, and Tongue and Groove Theatre's spirited and playful production make the hundred-year-old tale delightfully fresh.
"...characters familiar from this improvisational comic theatre form. Director David Yeakle has his company of "enterprising and energetic players"..."

Tornado in Slo Mo
Tornado in Slo Mo, the autobiographical album by Darcie Deaville, contains songs drawn from Deaville's tumultuous past that ring with a saving not-gonna-take-it-anymore grace, but her one-woman show at Hyde Park Theatre based on the same material falls way short of compelling.
"..."Listen long enough," writes poet David Jewell, "and everybody is interesting and a little destroyed."..."

Back Bog Beast Bait
While its Sixties-era script gives Sam Shepard's early, kooky drama Back Bog Beast Bait a hallucinogenic clunkiness, the look and feel of the Tongue and Groove Theatre production is impressively atmospheric and its company of performers have a terrific time.
