Stray Dog Theatre's New Works Laboratory presents an opportunity to participate in the development of new plays, and its free performances offer St. Louisan's a unique look at the creative process. The collaboration between playwright, actors and audience serves the company and the theater community well and I applaud Stray Dog Theatre for its commitment.

Torture, trust and the unknown are deep subjects to cover in an evening that combines modern dance and a short play. The Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble has chosen to take a bold path with its presentation of "Nine," a provocative and brutal short play, and "Sketch," a dance by the Leverage Dance Theatre.

The actor-focused Theatre Lab makes a bold statement with its inaugural production, "The Sunset Limited," directed by Ryan Foizey. Focused on character and intellect, the show benefits from strong performances by Robert Alan Mitchell as Black and Zachary Allen Farmer as White.

The Muny in Forest Park closes out the 2013 season with "West Side Story," the much-loved musical that's still an audience favorite. Featuring music and lyrics by Leonard Bernstein and a young Steven Sondheim, and a book by Arthur Laurents, this modern retelling of Shakespeare's classic Romeo and Juliet still feels fresh and exciting, even though it has been more than 50 years since its debut.
