They say the 2011 musical “The Book of Mormon” is crude and funny and, judging from the tour at The Fox Theatre right now, it certainly is. But what you hear less often is how very smart and well-constructed it is. Anybody can be a smart-ass. Being a smart-ass with a little heart is more difficult, but this show pulls it off.

So: Take the 40 dancers of the Nashville Ballet; add 120 singers and 60 musicians, including The University of Missouri-St. Louis Orchestra and Singers, The Bach Society of Saint Louis, and The St. Louis Children’s Choir; then set them loose on Carl Orff's 1936 "Carmina Burana" on the Touhill Center's big stage. What you get is an impressive piece of dance theatre that succeeds both as Spectacle and as Art.

The one-man show, "Winning History - The Branch Rickey Story," is an entertaining evening of theater, and a nice reminder that spring training is just around the corner. As a baseball fan myself, I was predisposed to like the subject matter, and author/actor Ralph Kalish does a nice job of interweaving personal anecdote with historical fact.

Stray Dog Theatre’s production of Charles Busch’s “Psycho Beach Party,” is a spirited romp through the “golden age” of beach and surf movies that playfully, occasionally darkly, jabs at the funny bone.

So, opera fans, let’s consider Douglas Moore and John Latouche’s 1956 opera “The Ballad of Baby Doe.” Is it a classic that deserves its position as one of a small number of American operas in the standard repertory? Or is it a dated effort whose time has come and gone? Or perhaps a little of both?

The world premiere by Lia Romeo at HotCity Theater offers a fresh and funny look at the lives of Ladue high school students and their use - and misuse - of social technology

In the 1950s, William Inge could be named with Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams as a leading American playwright. He seemed to be dealing boldly with ordinary Midwestern Americans and their struggles with a society that repressed sex and celebrated material wealth.

Tower of Song: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and 80th Birthday Party Leonard Cohen started out as a poet, and poetry -- ecstatic, spiritual, erotic and political -- suffuses all of his work. When he launched a career as a songwriter and singer in the '60s, only Bob Dylan could match his visionary...
