Dealing with death and deformity

Written by Bob Wilcox
Some one-person shows have one character. Some have many characters. "The Purpose Project: Thao's Library" has one actor and one character, and they are the same person.

'Emergency': Welcome to the land of liberty

Written by Bob Wilcox
Some one-person shows have one character. Some have many characters. "Emergency," currently at The Black Rep, has one actor and many characters. Like most one-person shows, it's more storytelling than drama, though it has moments of theatrical excitement, thanks both…

The passing parade

Written by Chuck Lavazzi

"Never safe - always R-S" is the somewhat cryptic motto of R-S Theatrics, a local small professional theatre company that boldly goes where many other groups have rarely, if ever, gone before.  An outgrowth of the now defunct Soundstage Productions, which specialized in staged readings of new and rarely-performed scripts, R-S is fearless about bringing different and challenging material to St. Louis audiences.  Their current project, Jason Robert Brown's 1998 musical drama "Parade," just might be the Platonic Ideal of an R-S show.

Gimme shelter

Written by Chuck Lavazzi

My friend the playwright/producer Joan Lipkin (of That Uppity Theatre Company fame) once remarked that theatre in St. Louis was mostly about real estate. What she meant was that there are far more theatre companies in town than there are spaces in which they can perform.

Star chamber

Written by Chuck Lavazzi

For some years now the classical music world has been all abuzz with news of ensembles reaching out beyond the usual performance venues and taking the classics places where they've never been before.

Stray Dog Theatre's New Works Laboratory presents an opportunity to participate in the development of new plays, and its free performances offer St. Louisan's a unique look at the creative process. The collaboration between playwright, actors and audience serves the…
Torture, trust and the unknown are deep subjects to cover in an evening that combines modern dance and a short play. The Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble has chosen to take a bold path with its presentation of "Nine," a provocative…

Mama’s Pride: 'The Lyons'

Written by Andrea Braun
If Joan Crawford had lived long enough to see Nicky Silver’s outrageous dysfunctional family matriarch, Rita Lyons (Judi Mann), poor Joan would have felt more like Mother of the Year than “Mommie Dearest.”
St. Louis Shakespeare is now performing The Two Noble Kinsmen because scholars have by and large agreed that Shakespeare wrote about half of it, probably when John Fletcher asked him to help give the Globe Theatre's audience something fresh. So…

Tower of Song: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and 80th Birthday Party

Tower of Song: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and 80th Birthday Party Leonard Cohen started out as a poet, and poetry -- ecstatic, spiritual, erotic and political -- suffuses all of his work. When he launched a career as a songwriter and singer in the '60s, only Bob Dylan could match his visionary...
