"The Hothouse" is a dark, sinister play with plenty of laughs to go around - classic early Pinter and very well done.
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."
That is 2 as in the number, the second in a series, not "t-o-o," as in "also." This film gives sequels a good name although it's hardly "Godfather II." It picks up where "Despicable Me" left off, that is, with the main character, named Gru, becoming a family man.

NonProphet Theatre Company's 'Montana: A Shakespearean Scarface' finds humor, pathos in adaptation of film.
Yes, it's derivative, and, yes, it's violent with bullets going through foreheads, bang in the bangs. Yes, it's vulgar with the F bomb dropping like acid rain. But "The Heat" is also delightful. Just watching Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock bash each other, verbally and physically, is worth a lot.
Sitting in the dank, humid depths of a sad Porta Potty on day three of Bonnaroo, a poor soul sits and contemplates his life with a beer in one hand and a cigarette in the other for an early morning movement.
Need a break from sequels about hangovers and fast cars? Need a movie that is so well written that you’ll want to see it twice to catch all the good lines? Then “The Kings of Summer” is the indy movie for you, a film that sneaks into the summer roster this year the way “Moonrise Kingdom” did last year.
