Almost perfect in Almost, Maine

Written by Steve Callahan
St. Louis University offers such a spectrum of fine theatre! Last May I thrilled to their dark, weighty expressionist Machinal. Last week I delighted in their production of a play that's as light and insignificant as a snowflake. Almost Maine,…
Universities are generally a wonderful source of drama that you can't see anywhere else. They're undaunted by large casts or complex technical demands or even by box-office considerations. They can do a play simply because it's great. Webster Conservatory's latest…

St. Louis Shakespeare sails through The Tempest

Written by Bob Wilcox
He conjures storms, renders his enemies defenseless, creates Hollywood spectacles out of thin air, and even arranges for a handsome prince to fall in love with his daughter. Marvel Comics should create such a superhero.

The Sunset Limited serves up food for the soul

Written by Andrea Braun
The subtitle of Cormac McCarthy's The Sunset Limited is “A Novel in Dramatic Form.” Therefore, it's not surprising that nothing really happens during the play, other than two black-and-white dudes sittin' around talkin'. But most of the time, that is…
