BWW Reviews: St. Louis Shakespeare's ANTON IN SHOW BUSINESS
by Chris Gibson - Aug 8, 2010

However, it comes off as more a collection of interesting and amusing bits and pieces, than the pure farce it masquerades as. St. Louis Shakespeare has concocted an engaging production of this work that's occasionally hilarious, and definitely worthy of your time and attention. (more...)
