Anthony Wininger's "Theater for Men" was an interesting set featuring two short pieces accompanied by a lecture. The two pieces were a speech by Cato the Elder, performed in contemporary dress, and a subversively funny short play by George Kaufman that parodies gender behavior with deceptively sharp observations delivered in sweet words and coded phrases.

Magic Smoking Monkey Theatre, the wild child of St. Louis Shakespeare, turns to the golden age of network television in its latest production, an action-packed, played for laughs "The One-Hour Twilight Zone: Live" now showing through May 17, 2014 at the Regional Arts Commission.

"The Nerd" is a delightful, if somewhat insubstantial, bit of theater mischief teeming with wry references and affected mannerisms from the "golden age of Hollywood." Filled with engaging performances built around snappy remarks, witty comebacks, comic expressions, and a dash of pure silliness, the show is a bit romantic comedy, a bit slapstick, and a bit of a mystery.

The Washington University Performing Arts Department production of "Twelfth Night" is a well-acted, well-interpreted production that does a lot to please its audience. The set and lighting design, by Quinlan Maggio and Sean M. Savoie, is simple, location, time and mood are suggested by projected shadows of bar tops and palm trees, as well as simple tables and benches. This simplicity by design helps to keep the long show moving at an enjoyable pace, energizing the actors and ensuring the audience remains engaged.

Plays, movies and books about men's "midlife crises" are a dime-a-dozen; it's much less common to see a show that delves, artfully and thoughtfully, into the secret desires of a middle-aged, married woman. Luckily, Dramatic License Productions' humorous, yet realistic, one-woman show, "Shirley Valentine," is here to fill that gap.

'The Little Dog Laughed' and he was not alone

Though "The Little Dog Laughed" is filled with biting and insightful humor that keeps the audience laughing along, I can't remember the last time a "happy ending" made me feel so blue. The short scenes, well defined characters and sharp direction complement Douglas Carter Beane's Tony Award winning play in Stray Dog Theatre's enjoyable production.

The Washington University Ovations Series continued its 2013–2014 offerings with a couple of one-man performances of "The Wonder Bread Years," by writer, playwright, actor, producer, director, comedian Pat Hazell.

With "Solemn Mockeries," the Midnight Company has once again succeeded in producing a memorable, and thoroughly enjoyable, evening of theater on a smaller scale. This "true story" introduces contemporary audiences to William-Henry Ireland, a man who nearly found success by creating forgeries of William Shakespeare's personal documents. If his reach hadn't exceeded his abilities, Ireland might have escaped discovery during his lifetime.

"The Hothouse" is a dark, sinister play with plenty of laughs to go around - classic early Pinter and very well done.
