If ever a show were more elevated by its direction/choreography and performances, I haven’t seen it.

Time and again the Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University mounts productions that are marvels of excellence.

Caryl Churchill has had an amazing career since she graduated from Oxford University’s Lady Margaret Hall women’s college with a degree in English Literature in 1960. Her plays often focus on sexual politics, the abuse of power and a non-traditional look at history from a feminist point of view.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre /The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; /Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere /The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst /Are full of passionate intensity.

There’s nothing I love more than seeing young people participate in live theater, and I have a real soft spot for the works of Shakespeare. So I looked forward to experiencing Washington University’s production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It.

A bloody uprising is revisited.Upstream Theatre brings us "Conversations with an Executioner".  A Nazi general and a Polish Resistance fighter face each other in a shared prison cell.

In the Black Rep production of "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," the cancers of racial inequality and overt cruelty are laid bare with a finessed, punch-to–the-gut impact, one that left me with a renewed sense of outrage for a brand of casual racism that must never, ever be tolerated again.

Mary Zimmerman comes by her academic standards naturally, as the daughter of two college professors at the University of Nebraska. Her writing skills, however, are the product of a fanciful imagination that has guided her artistic achievements since childhood.

Once upon a time, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) was an automatic death sentence for anyone who contracted it.* There was no known cure and the progress of a patient from its diagnosis or its precursor, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) was unstoppable.

Not all one-person shows are created alike. Some are like quality off-the-rack suits that can be worn effectively by anyone of the right physical type; think “Belle of Amherst” or “Barrymore”. Others are like custom-tailored outfits designed for a unique individual; think most cabaret shows.

I'm not a fan of Tennessee Williams. I find most of his plays dark and rather hard to watch, like witnessing a family fight at Christmas dinner or watching a freight train approach a group of bunnies.

Killer Joe is a sordid, sick tale of violence, depravity, greed, drugs, nudity and sex all set in a Texas trailer park, peopled by the disturbingly dysfunctional Smith family and their hired gun – a cop by day, a hit man by night - Killer Joe.

The necessary ingredients for a successful production of “Fiddler on the Roof” aren’t that much different from those for a successful production of any musical.

Carter W. Lewis' play Camden and Lilly felt like a strange, almost esoteric experience. I didn't understand the plot.
