Lonesome Hollow is a small town in a natural bowl shaped by the hills around it. It seems peaceful here in a time identified as “soon-ish.” The residents have no particular duties that we can ascertain. Meals and housing are provided, as you would expect, for Lonesome Hollow is a prison.

That a man named Lincoln would portray President Lincoln in an arcade role playing game is an interesting twist; that the same man would have a brother intentionally named Booth is a recipe for an unhappy ending. It is on this premise that "Top Dog / Underdog" revolves, ever so quietly, and the story unravels, ever so painfully.

The idea of bringing Shakespeare to the streets and directly involving the community in the production is more than admirable; it is necessary to keeping the arts alive and to inspiring generation after generation to keep moving art forward. Shakespeare Festival St. Louis once again takes theater to the people with "Old Hearts Fresh" a modern tail of love and hope inspired by Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale."

I visited China a few years ago, but am sorry to say I saw none of any native Chinese theatrical arts while there. When I heard the Beijing Opera was coming to the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the campus the University of Missouri, I hoped to rectify my lack of exposure. I must say I came away enchanted and impressed.

“Beulah Annan” wouldn’t make a very good song title, but “Roxie Hart,” works just fine. And that girl Roxie has really been around. She was based on Beulah who shot her lover dead (they both reached for the gun) and was acquitted in 1920s Chicago with her stalwart mechanic husband by her side. Beulah divorced him soon after, saying he was “dull.”

At times, it was if the stage almost shimmered. The audience applauded the set (well, the costumes really) twice and the singing and dancing were spectacular. Despite a three-hour length, a few draggy parts in Act II while plot points are getting sorted out, and one of the most familiar stories in the world, we loved it all. Michael Hamilton’s "My Fair Lady" is the most beautiful show I’ve seen this year, and it is a lot more than just a pretty face.

The rape and murder of an innocent 13-year-old factory girl and the subsequent incarceration and trial of the accused rapist is most definitely not a standard musical theme. R-S Theatrics production of "Parade," a musical by Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown, bravely explores this story in a moving, and often emotionally compelling, show.

Mr. Sloane is a gorgeous young thing and everybody wants him.  Mr. Sloane hasn't had a single scruple for ever-so-long.  Mr. Sloane's polite demeanor is marbled with streaks of blazing viciousness.  Mr. Sloane is quite a piece of work.

Some one-person shows have one character. Some have many characters. "The Purpose Project: Thao's Library" has one actor and one character, and they are the same person.

Some one-person shows have one character. Some have many characters. "Emergency," currently at The Black Rep, has one actor and many characters. Like most one-person shows, it's more storytelling than drama, though it has moments of theatrical excitement, thanks both to playwright Daniel Beaty and actor Ron Conner.

Dr. Seuss, in his 1961 story, "The Sneetches," taught a lesson against prejudice that no Sneetch was different or better than any other Sneetch, whether or not they had stars on their bellies. Playwright Alfred Uhry is exploring a very similar issue of prejudice in The Theatre Guild of Webster Groves' current production, "The Last Night of Ballyhoo."
