In his director's notes for "Soups, Stews, and Casseroles: 1976," Seth Gordon notes that the play "asks questions that are important for us to contemplate and then leave us to work it out in the end. I've heard many an audience member tell me that his or her favorite play is the kind that keeps one talking about it for a long time after viewing."

'Opus' Redux

I wonder how many reviewers will mention West End Players Guild's (WEPG) production of "Opus" in 2013 when they review this one. Is it appropriate to do so?

An old classic adapted for the stage

The mood is set for "Double Indemnity" the minute you walk into the theater. Small windows let in rays of eerie white sunlight. A smoky haze swirls above the stage. The terra cotta roof and plastered walls paired with streaks of sunlight makes it unclear as to whether the scene is set inside or outside, during night or day.

Submitting to the allure of 'Venus in Fur'

"Venus in Fur" is a clever, funny, and slightly creepy piece from David Ives, the master of the ingenious one-act and the inventive historical adaptation. At 100 minutes or thereabouts it may be a bit repetitious in places, but overall it's a classic example of the "well-made play" a la Terrence Rattigan or J.B. Priestly.

The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's production of "Sense and Sensibility" is polished and entertaining. The story, adapted from the Jane Austen novel, follows two sisters on their quest to find husbands.

Unsentimental journey: '4000 Miles' at the Rep

Like its protagonist, Amy Herzog’s comedy/drama “4000 Miles” seems a bit aimless and not really sure of what it wants to be. The cast does fine work and the technical aspects are, as usual, exemplary, but ultimately the emotional stakes in the script aren't high enough to make it more than moderately interesting.
