In Ken Ludwig's fanciful farce, a golf tournament, an impending engagement and an ill-advised bet between old rivals converge to create an over-the-top comedy that offers easy laughs and physical comedy even if, at times, it tries a bit too hard to please. "The Fox on the Fairway" quickly introduces us to the various characters while setting up a plot that, though not particularly original, is well suited for the far-fetched twists, improbable revelations and comic misunderstandings of farce.

The New Jewish Theatre keeps their audiences laughing with a lively mix of humor and sex therapy in "Becoming Dr. Ruth," a delightfully informative production.

St. Louis Shakespeare's Magic Smoking Monkey Theatre company once again strikes gold, this time with "Cannibal: The Musical," a hilariously twisted homage to the classic Hollywood musical written by Trey Parker, half of the creative team behind "South Park" and "The Book of Mormon." Cannibal tells the ill-fated story of a group of miners who met their demise on the trail to Colorado gold.

Love has no age limit in 'Rembrandt’s Gift'

It is not uncommon to see a romantic comedy that features a love-triangle even one in which an historic figure come to life in modern times. It is, however, considerably less common that the three characters involved are well past the bloom of youth. Dramatic License Productions' staging of "Rembrandt's Gift" is a touching, funny and sometimes bittersweet look at love, and life, that fearlessly tackles the subject of growing older in uncertain economic times without losing it's light, comedic touch.

The play overflows with sharp observations and broad humor, and the company meets the upbeat, eternally romantic tone in an enjoyable production that's constantly in motion, but never hurried.

Richard Bean's laugh-out-loud interpretation of Carlo Goldoni's "The Servant of Two Masters," with songs by Grant Olding, follows the misguided adventures of Francis Henshall, a man attempting to fatten his belly and pockets by serving two gentlemen at the same time.
