Cole Porter’s 1934 hit “Anything Goes” has undergone three major revivals, each one of which involved significant alternations in the script and score. The latest, produced for New York’s Roundabout Theatre in 2011, is the version playing the Fox right now, and it’s a winner.

Time was when St. Louis Savoyards could expect an annual Christmas present from Opera Theatre in the form of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta presented at Washington University’s Edison Theatre. Alas, either the present proved too expensive or the school had other plans for the space. These days we have to be content with the occasional production as part of the regular season by Opera Theatre or one of our other local opera companies.

Every boy of ten needs a Mrs. Mannerly—a much older woman to show him the ways of the world.  Now, I’m not talking about a Mrs. Robinson, oh, no (though that, of course, is always nice).  No, I mean someone who will teach the lad proper customs and behavior that will allow him to pass smoothly into adult society.

The Fox was a rockin' recently with three performances of the US touring production of "Rock of Ages." Rather than having anything to do with the Christian hymn of the same name, this extravaganza of 80's rock standards had the audience playing air drums and air guitars throughout the house.

Not everyone enjoys a monologue-based show, but I find that when done well, monologues offer an actor a chance to really develop character and story. The St. Louis Actors’ Studio production of Alan Bennett's “Talking Heads,” a selection of three monologues from the series of the same name originally airing on the BBC, takes a straightforward approach to its presentation that largely works.

What if you were foolish, and yet thought you were smart? Now extend that to everyone you know, all laboring under same delusion. Add music, color, costume, and a talented cast, and you have the world of "Shlemiel the First."

If it were possible to bottle and resell whatever powers Michelle Collier's "A Tribute to the Hollywood Blondes" show, the nation would never experience an energy shortage.

Let's be totally honest here. The words "family entertainment" most often inspire dread in the adult, and even teen-aged, members of the family. Thankfully, St. Louis Shakespeare's Magic Smoking Monkey Theatre has returned with their laugh-out-loud, pop culture stuffed riff on the Harry Potter series. This briskly paced adventure succeeds by staying true to the essential story while playing fast and loose with the surrounding details.

How many times have you thought about unplugging from the perpetually connected modern world? Perhaps you've caught yourself wishing for a simpler time? A time before wireless devices and the 24/7 news cycle, a time like the 1950s. The characters in Jordan Harrison's "Maple and Vine" are presented with just that opportunity, and their choices create an interesting and thought-provoking evening of theater.
