From Hendrix to Shostakovich, the transforming world spread its message though the music of the times. As some artists protested against war and tyranny, others broke the molds of established forms. The Chamber Players perform an uplifting, entertaining ode to this rebellious era. (more...)

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's Compelling ALL MY SONSBWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's Compelling ALL MY SONS
by Chris Gibson - Jan 17, 2017

It's hard to believe that award-winning playwright Arthur Miller crafted ALL MY SONS as a last ditch effort to produce a commercially successful work after his initial offering failed after less than a week of performances. Based upon a true story, Miller's work is a compelling story that succeeded and sent him on his way to writing some of the most powerful plays of the twentieth century. For the second half of their 50th anniversary season, the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis produces an excellent rendering that features stellar direction and an excellent cast. I highly recommend this show. (more...)

by Jack L. B. Gohn - Jan 30, 2016

There is no perfect way to realize Shakespeare's vision, but employing an all-female cast is apt to be among the less successful ways. In the alternative, you can say the hell with realizing Shakespeare's vision, and simply have fun with your own. And that, I think, is the approach that director Wendy C. Goldberg has chosen to pursue at Center Stage (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Rep's Uplifting and Amusing GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNERBWW Reviews: The Rep's Uplifting and Amusing GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER
by Chris Gibson - Jan 14, 2015

It seems like more and more films are being adapted for the stage these days. Some for the better and some for the worse. Which brings us to the classic film, GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, which starred Spencer Tracy (in his final screen appearance), Katherine Hepburn and Sidney Poitier, in a wonderfully inspiring and humorous production being presented by the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. One might think that this particular piece of cinema is outdated, but the fact is that this story is one that will still resonate with audiences today, and maybe that's a just a sad dose of reality that we all have to face. Todd Kreidler's script follows the movie fairly closely (based on the original screenplay by William Rose), but includes large doses of laughs that neatly leaven the dramatic aspects of the piece, making it an engaging and thoroughly entertaining theatrical experience that I cannot recommend highly enough.

Review - Katie RocheReview - Katie Roche
by Ben Peltz - Mar 1, 2013

While several of New York's non-profit theatre companies have been pursuing the noble cause of creating more exposure for contemporary women playwrights, the Mint Theatre Company has been cornering the market on the dead ones.  Fourteen of the company's forty productions were scripted by women, a statistic that gains stature when you consider that they're reviving from a pool of material with a percentage of work by women far below that rate.  A prime case in point is the nearly forgotten Irish playwright Theresa Deevy, arguably the most famous female playwright of the first half of the 20th Century.
