Where is God in a world full of violence, corruption, and hatred? That is the question this play seeks to answer. Through a series of stories, some true and some fictional, seven actors portray a variety of characters seeking evidence of God’s existence in our daily lives.
Ken Haller’s The Medicine Show peddles miracle cures compounded by Jason Robert Brown, Adam Guettel, Stephen Sondheim and other noted practitioners of the healing arts. In song and story, Ken shows us how becoming a doctor is just the first step in becoming a healer.Ken Haller is a renowned cabaret singer based in St. Louis. He performed his first original cabaret, “Song by Song by Sondheim” in June 2009 and reprised it multiple times to sold out audiences. This was followed by “The TV Show” in 2012 and “Mama’s Boy” in 2014. Ken has also performed his shows at Don’t Tell Mama in New York, Davenport’s in Chicago, and Feinstein’s at the Nikko in San Francisco. He was named Best St. Louis Cabaret Performer in the 2015 GO! List in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Ken is also a professor of pediatrics at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine and Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. In addition to caring for patients and teaching the art of medicine to students and residents in clinical settings, Ken teaches an elective course for first year medical students called “Acting Like a Doctor” about how to use the principles of improvisational theater to be a more compassionate physician. Ken’s latest cabaret, which premiered in 2016, is “The Medicine Show.” This 65-minute show is a collection of songs and stories about becoming a doctor – and the realization that this was only the first step toward becoming a healer.BEST ST. LOUIS CABARET PERFORMER! The GO! List, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Sunday, April 26, 2105:“Cabaret performers come and go, but Ken Haller, a pediatrician by day, is a St. Louis legend.

After its smashingly trippy debut production in November, PRIME is back with a brand new festival of six original theatrical works. The Classified Show: A 24-Hour Conspiracy Festival will kick off at 8 p.m. April 8 in The Southampton Church (4716 Macklind Avenue). Tickets are $15 at the door.
The first production of PRIME’s four-show 2017 season, The Classified Show will feature six plays that dive down the rabbit hole of America’s fastest growing cottage industry: conspiracy theories. Prepare your mind for six bold new scripts that will explore everything you're not supposed to know: assassination plots, alien visitations, false flag operations and more.
In addition to the plays themselves, visual artists will create a piece of tactile “evidence” for each of the six featured conspiracies.
As with all PRIME productions, the entire festival will be written, rehearsed and performed in a 24-hour frenzy of creativity. An ensemble of local actors, directors and visual artists will team up to produce the work of playwrights from across the nation.
“This show asks our audience to investigate the world they live in, and to unlearn all they think they know,” said PRIME Artistic Director Andrea Standby. “We strive to reform and to enlighten, to confound and to amaze, and to perhaps cause a little cognitive dissonance along the way.”
Standby and Managing Director Kyle Kratky launched PRIME in November with The Transmigration Show, a 24-hour theatre festival themed around reincarnation.
PRIME dubs itself “The Home of the Now.” Its mission is to create raw, welcoming, and unorthodox theatre for all, encapsulating the ephemeral while encouraging community engagement.
The rest of PRIME’s 2017 season will feature three more 24-hour play festivals that will all center around a single unifying theme: question everything - history, stories you thought you knew, identity, even reality. Look for announcements on these shows in the near future.

“Reflective Accumulations,” an exhibit of paintings by Kansas City-based artist Grant Miller, will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School from Friday, April 7, through Wednesday, May 17. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on April 7.
Miller begins his paintings with an architectural grid and then builds on that initial structure through a chain reaction of controlled, determined layers. Once the angles and lines come together, the forms that exist within the gaps come forth creating a striking dichotomy. These fluid forms begin to take center stage in Miller’s work, while the initial structure that brought the effects together slowly recedes. Some of his works have between eight and 18 layers.
