I was looking forward to our visit to the new Boo Cat Club about which we've recently been showered with printer's ink. It's the renovated old Artists' Guild building on Union -- just across from the Union Avenue Opera -- and it's the venue for a production of "Stairs to the Roof" by Tennessee Williams.
To criticize Andre Previn, the German-born American composer, pianist, conductor and jazz performer, would seem the height of folly.
I'm not a fan of Tennessee Williams. I find most of his plays dark and rather hard to watch, like witnessing a family fight at Christmas dinner or watching a freight train approach a group of bunnies.
St. Louis currently has a rare opportunity to see two productions of the best play set in St. Louis, Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie.
