12 STEPS: THE MUSICAL by Elise Maurine Milner12 STEPS: THE MUSICAL by Elise Maurine Milner
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2016

The funny thing about ADDICTION is, everyone has one! This comedic and heart warming story follows Graham Chili, a country boy from Texas who has just moved to New York City to follow his dreams as a wall street stock broker by day and a cabaret singer by night. Looking to make friends and connect with his new surroundings in the spirit of his hometown 'mega church capital,' and fresh off the bus in Timesquare, he enters a Manhattan Mega church in search of the 'choir practice' room. Instead he erroneously stumbles upon four different 12 step addiction meetings going on in the church basement that divert his attention, inspire his love life, and creates new friends and life realizations! '12 Steps' both entertains and educates also with light parody, both using the popularity and the mystery of the infamous self help program without mockery, but with clever direction and understanding using humor, gentleness, and ingenuity. Come get your 'Higher Power' on! (more...)

BWW Review: St. Louis Actors' Studio's Intriguing LABUTE NEW THEATER FESTIVALBWW Review: St. Louis Actors' Studio's Intriguing LABUTE NEW THEATER FESTIVAL
by Chris Gibson - Jul 26, 2016

We're so lucky to have the privilege of having the St. Louis Actors' Studio present the Labute New Theater Festival each year. Submissions come from around the country, are whittled down to a few, and then presented in two parts, with each section receiving a full two week run. In addition, there are staged readings of the High School finalists who also submit their new works. While I was unable to attend the first part, I did get a chance to see the second, and was pleased with the results of this years' choices. It was a good mixture of styles and approaches, and it continues to be something our region should be very proud of. (more...)

BWW Blog: Director Gary Condes on Neil LaBute's SOME GIRL(S)BWW Blog: Director Gary Condes on Neil LaBute's SOME GIRL(S)
by Guest Blogger: Gary Condes - Jul 8, 2016

When I was first approached to direct this play I wasn't sure I wanted to do it. Some Girl(s) has a main character who appears, on first and second reading, to be a prize cock who exhibits a host of unflattering male traits. On the page he was not a likeable man. Add to that the play's simplistic and seemingly undramatic form, basically four two-handers in a row taking place in one hotel room - I didn't respond warmly to it. (more...)
