Performed over the weekend at Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center, dancer-actor Mimi Quillin’s solo performance memoir, “Call Fosse at the Minskoff,” is a skillfully told up-close-and-personal account of the making of a Broadway musical revival and, not coincidentally, the coming of professional age of a Broadway dancer.

With “Kamloopa: An Indigenous Matriarch Story,” Canadian Indigenous playwright Kim Senklip Harvey (Syilx and Tsilhqot’in Nation) has given us a thoughtful comedy about two sisters who, over the course of the play, come into their own as they each claim their power and heritage as Indigenous women. With all its cultural and human richness and theatrical opportunity, “Kamloopa” deserves better treatment than it is getting in director Estefanía Fadul’s loosely formed, hit-and-largely miss production for WAM Theatre, which opened over the weekend, with an all-Indigenous female cast, in Shakespeare & Company’s Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre.
