I can sum up the Opera Theatre production of Donizetti's 1832 romantic comedy "The Elixir of Love" in one word: bravi. Or maybe that should be "bravissimi," since every aspect of this funny, endearing, and beautifully sung show deserves heaps…
Circus Flora's "The Pawn" is the strongest show they've done in years. The unifying concept—a chess game—provides a simple, easily understood thread to link the various acts and doesn't require a lot of narration.

Disgusted with the way your Facebook friends are cheerfully spreading bogus news items without bothering to fact check them? Convinced that the Internet is turning us into a nation of credulous chumps who will buy anything? As Opera Theatre is demonstrating this weekend, P.T. Barnum's observation about a sucker being born every minute is nothing new.

One of Shakespeare's best loved and most well known plays, "Henry V" tells the continuing story of Hal, introduced as a young ne'er do well prince who brilliantly redeems himself and earns the throne in "Henry IV." Now crowned King…

Going to Florissant to see the Alpha Players' production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” I was thinking, do I really have to sit through “Spelling Bee” again? Yes, it's a charming and clever piece, but four or…
"Meskerem":  We'd call it September, but in the ancient calendar of Ethiopia Meskerem is the first month of the new year.  It follows three dismal months of gloom and heavy rain.  It's bright and sunny and it brings the renewal…
"August, Osage County" is a deeply thoughtful, often intensely disturbing look at the secrets families keep and the ways those same secrets are used as ammunition to wound or control other family members. It isn't a pretty show, but it…
