A maginificent Curse at Washington University

Written by Mark Bretz
Sam Shepard shocked the sensibilities of American theater when his literary voice first was raised in the 1960s and '70s. At first specializing in absurdist works, his style evolved into an alternate realism, a landscape where emotions and thoughts are…

Meramec's Miss Julie misses the mark

Written by Andrea Braun
A group of hardworking actors, their director, and a big crew give it their best shot, but SLCC Meramec's production of August Strindberg's Miss Julie mostly falls flat. Strindberg wrote this play in 1888 when he was experimenting with expressionism…

Tom Stoppard Czechs in at the History Museum

Written by Steve Callahan

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…
The Washington University Ovations Series continued its 2010–2011 offerings with a performance of 500 Clown Frankenstein, by 500 Clown, a theatrical group out of Chicago. Taking over the University's Edison Theatre for two nights--the first night with their take on…
In this thoughtful comedy, Amanda Blue (Rachel Hanks) steps out onto a stage nearly bare but for some chairs, music stands and drapes, and begins to talk. She is 25 years old, in a relationship with a guy supposedly destined…
