So often, the days that have the most impact on our lives are the ones that start just like any other day. "Eat Your Heart Out," a St. Louis premiere written by Courtney Baron, focuses on the everyday in an affecting, moving tale of love and need in contemporary America.

Somewhere in Lebanon, in a dark, cold prison cell, three men wait to learn their fate. Will they be killed by their captors? Will their respective governments negotiate for their freedom? Will they lose their minds and slowly go insane as they wait in the small, cramped cell for release, or at least some news from home? "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me" examines these questions in this gut-wrenching drama set in a single, dark cell.

Unconventional theme keeps 'Parade' marching along

The rape and murder of an innocent 13-year-old factory girl and the subsequent incarceration and trial of the accused rapist is most definitely not a standard musical theme. R-S Theatrics production of "Parade," a musical by Alfred Uhry and Jason Robert Brown, bravely explores this story in a moving, and often emotionally compelling, show.

The passing parade

"Never safe - always R-S" is the somewhat cryptic motto of R-S Theatrics, a local small professional theatre company that boldly goes where many other groups have rarely, if ever, gone before.  An outgrowth of the now defunct Soundstage Productions, which specialized in staged readings of new and rarely-performed scripts, R-S is fearless about bringing different and challenging material to St. Louis audiences.  Their current project, Jason Robert Brown's 1998 musical drama "Parade," just might be the Platonic Ideal of an R-S show.

"Gun Club"
Alex Phillips and David Reddick

There are two types of cafes in the movies. There's the hive of romance -- think Brad Pitt and Claire Forlani in "Meet Joe Black" -- a cozy room with warm, milky drinks and longing eyes.

Cherries Jubilee

One of R-S Theatrics’ promotional slogans is “Never safe. Always R-S.” I think this means that the company doesn’t put on tired old shows, and is true to its self-definition, but I’ve never thought it made much sense until now.

This business is dying

Somebody at R-S Theatrics likes weird. Last year, they produced a staged reading of Andrew Hinderaker's play Suicide, Incorporated. Now they're doing a fully staged production of Suicide, Incorporated. Actually, it's not that much more fully staged that the previous, pretty fully staged one – well staged in both cases.

More than ‘Zero’

Mr. and Mrs. Zero (Chuck Brinkley, Kimberly D. Sansone) have been married 25 years. Mr. Zero has worked as a bookkeeper for 25 years. Mr. Zero is unhappy. Mrs. Zero is unhappy. When Mr. Zero is fired instead of getting the promotion he expected, he kills his boss, is executed and eventually learns the secret. The end.

'Autobahn': More than just a highway.

Neil Labute's Autobahn is a pleasant twist from the usual structure of plays. It is a compilation of seven short plays, presented as one. Each vignette, or short one act takes place in the front seat of an automobile with two characters, and of course, different situations that range from  serious to funny to absurd.

Caught in the train lights!

Jesus would have hopped the ‘A’ Train to come watch this performance.  Spectacular!  Guirgis’ masterful story telling was obvious from the beginning.  The play starts with Angel Cruz (Adam Flores) front center on his knees attempting to pray in a prison cell.  And from there on out I was hooked.
