In the beginning there was the word. And in the middle and in the end, more words announce our arrivals and departures from this world. Words inform us of the past and outline our hopes for the future. But what if we knew the future through words given us by a magical machine?

How much can you downsize Wagner without putting him out of business? The late musical satirist Anna Russell once famously cut the entire “Ring” cycle down to twenty hilarious minutes and some change while still telling the bare bones of the story.

It hardly seems possible that it has been almost nine years since I first saw "The Lion King" at The Fox. The show seems as fresh and lively as it did back then, and the current tour, which has been running continuously for ten years, is rock solid.

Once I thought that Gilbert and Sullivan were quaint, old-fashioned, sometimes mildly amusing Victorians. Then I saw several very clever productions of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, like The Mikado a couple of years ago at Opera Theatre of St. Louis. They were about as much fun as should be legally allowed in a theatre.

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