Theater Reviews
It was a striking visual moment:  in the spotlight the pretty blonde girl;  the short little black dress, heavily fringed—almost flapper in style.  And—-quite startlingly—long scarlet silk opera gloves.  Ah, that was a true touch of inspiration!  This is the…
Kirkwood Theatre Guild recently unveiled its 80th season with an audience-pleasing presentation of Noel Coward's charming comedy, Blithe Spirit. It's the type of show and production that has pleased patrons of the venerable community theater for eight decades.

A maginificent Curse at Washington University

A fine, full, Long Day's Journey Into Night

Written by Bob Wilcox
Eugene O'Neill created one of the masterpieces of American theatre – of world theatre – out of the agonies of his own family. His father became a wealthy matinee idol in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, made miserly…
