Written by Bob Wilcox
Footloose turns almost surreal at times as the irrational cruelties pile up on poor Ren McCormack, newly arrived in little, backward Bomont from big, hip Chicago. His life is a nightmare, an adolescent paranoid fantasy - until the nightmare turns…

The Aristocats

Written by Sheila R. Schultz
Call it brio, chutzpah or pizzazz. Cats have attitude! That's why felines have nuzzled their way into so many cartoon roles from Felix to Top Cat to Garfield. It's not surprising that the folks at Disney developed an animated musical…

Psychopathia Sexualis

Written by Andrea Braun
Arthur (Tom Lehmann) and Howard (Stephen Peirick) are friends, though on the surface they have little in common. Arthur shambles around in sloppy, mismatched clothes and red Converse sneakers. He's a “starving artist.” Howard wears an ascot, a navy blazer…

Anton in Show Business

Written by Andrea Braun
If I were to tell you everything I didn't like about SLS's production of Jane Martin's Anton in Show Business, this page would be blank. In fact, I loved it all so much that Alvy Singer would say, “I lurved it.”…

Written by Laura Kyro

Written by Chuck Lavazzi
Union Avenue Opera is one of the hidden gems of the local musical theatre scene. Their productions may sometimes be a bit rough around the edges and their theatre in the remodeled sanctuary of the Union Avenue Christian Church may…

God's Ear

Written by Andrea Braun
What can you say when your heart is shattered? If you're a member of the family Jenny Schwartz has created in God's Ear, quite a lot. Some of the statements sound like nonsense but make sense. Some observations are hilarious,…

The Sound of Music

Written by Bob Wilcox
The Sound of Music was the last musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and for me, it is the least. It leans too heavily on cute children, romanticized nuns, and sentimental melodrama, and the music suffers for it. But many…

Our Town

Written by
Our Town, written by Thorton Wilder in 1938, was produced in response to the disconnect Wilder believed was occurring between the "real world" and the "theater" world. The end result was a profoundly simple play, capturing the smaller moments that…

Written by Bob Wilcox
The text for Heiner Mueller's Hamletmachine is very dense - barely nine pages of concentrated writing. I'm probably pretty dense too, because I'm afraid I had trouble making consistent sense out of what I saw and heard at the Slightly…
