Life is a construct. So the good folks at New Line Theatre suggest with their current offering, Passing Strange. It's the autobiographical Alice in Wonderland story of a real-life musician Stew, reflecting on his most formative years. A privileged, angst-ridden would-be artist seeks identity through sex, drugs, and deconstructionist European ideology. You know, same old.

Once upon a time, there were a couple of white chicks named Alice Kinsella and Debra Sharn. They liked to sit around. And sing, now and then.
They don't have any eggnog or gingerbread...but Dramatic License Production's staging of This Wonderful Life serves the heartwarming charm you might be craving this holiday season. As you may guess, This Wonderful Life is a stage adaptation (written by Steve Murray, conceived by Mark Setlock) of a certain 1946 classic film bearing a similar title. If you're not a fan of the flick (nor a Jimmy Stewart enthusiast) this particular piece probably won't do it for you...but if you are an annual Frank Capra junkie, then this is a great new way to get your seasonal fix.
Are you a virgin? If you have not yet seen the Immediacy Theater Project's (ITP) evening of shenanigans that is Drawn & Quartered, then the answer is "yes" - in the same way that those naive to the world of The Rocky Horror Picture Show are virgins to midnight movies. It is unlike any theater, or sketch work for that matter, that St. Louis is currently offering - and sweetheart, you don't know what you're missing.
