I went to "Blue Man Group" at the Peabody last night and my eyes, my ears, my intelligence, my taste and my patience were all violently assaulted. This sort of production is aimed at audiences who won't be satisfied unless they're left staggering out the doors, reeling from sensory overload.
The Peabody Opera House recently played host to several performances of the Tony-winning “Peter and the Starcatcher,” based on a novel of the same name, and in subject a prequel to J. M. Barrie’s 1904 play and subsequent 1911 novel about Peter Pan, “Peter and Wendy.”
Audiences at the beautiful Peabody Opera House were treated to a brief escape from the winter's chill in St. Louis with a warm and inviting production of "Man of La Mancha" from Chasing Windmills LLC. The cast is strong throughout and the story an interesting and engaging interpretation of Cervantes life, as well as his most famous tale.
