A little nostalgia always seems to brighten spirits and add cheer to the holiday hustle and bustle. Dramatic License Productions successfully tapped into that feeling with its thoroughly enjoyable "A Holiday Musical Revue."

Introducing young children to the magic of theater is no small challenge. Luckily, the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis has found the perfect balance of story, song, and warmth to entice little audiences.

"Elf," the musical based on the 2003 movie of the same name, is cute the way snow is damp. It's sentimental the way an ice-covered road is slippery. It's heart-warming the way "The Little Drummer Boy" and that damn Christmas version of Pachelbel's "Canon in D" are annoying. And it's so family-friendly it made my teeth hurt.

As a friend and I were leaving Webster University's small Stage 3 after seeing "Smokey Joe's Cafe: The Songs of Leiber and Stoller," he observed that the productions of the Webster Conservatory of Theatre Arts are a great bargain. You can see terrifically talented young people, directed by top-flight theatre folks, young people who may go on to be multiple Tony Award winners. Some have them have done so. And you can see them for less than one-tenth what you'd pay to see them later on Broadway.

R-S Theatrics evening of one act plays, comprised of David Mamet's "Bobby Gould in Hell" and a suite of staged poetry from Shel Silverstein under the title "The Devil & Billy Markham," is, without question, not a traditional Christmas show.

When you step back and take a deeper look, William Missouri Downs' "Kosher Lutherans" is less about religion and more about adaptation. Though the play centers on a "perfect" Jewish couple, it is not their religion but how they handle the challenges and surprises, the "curveballs," that life throws their way that propels this show forward and provides its theme.

"Thou shalt not kill," the Commandment says. But what if you DO kill a whole lot of people and rather than officials arguing over the choice of "death drugs" you'll receive—oops, wait, that's a state of Missouri thing—you get a medal for your actions?

Get out your tweeds, your twinset, order a hot cup of Earl Grey and prepare to be happily entertained by Agatha Christie's "The Mousetrap", a play that has been performed continuously for an incredible sixty – one years and has been crowned the "longest running play of all time."

It find it interesting that an IMDB listing on screenwriter and playwright William Gibson — he of “The Miracle Worker” fame — fails to mention his 1975 Christmas play, “The Butterfingers Angel, Mary & Joseph, Herod the Nut and the Slaughter of 12 Hit Carols in a Pear Tree” (hereafter “Tree”). Although, once you’ve covered dramatizing the early life of Helen Keller, tackling the birth of Jesus with talking trees and animals, a psycho Herod, a confused but patient Joseph, and a Mary who could probably reconcile the parties involved in the war in the Middle East, I think we’d all focus on the success with Helen.

Falling snow greeted my niece and me as we left the Fox after the Nebraska Theater Caravan's production of "A Christmas Carol," a fitting close to an evening filled with the oft-told tale of Ebenezer Scrooge. If the audience wasn't in the holiday spirit when they arrived, I am confident the theater's sparkling lobby decorations and the sweetly reverent tone of this holiday classic quickly put them in the mood.

‘There are stars whose radiance is visible on earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for Mankind.’ –Hannah Senesh
