BWW Review: JULIA MIGENES SINGS KURT WEILL European Style at the Odyssey
by Shari Barrett - Nov 30, 2015

Migenes' performance was like taking a step back to the 1930s, watching the remarkable Lotte Lenya performing her husband's songs during the time he collaborated with Bertolt Brecht to create atonal melodies meant to shock audiences into realizing the masses were, like today, being controlled by the wealthy, upper 1% of society. "Lotte Lenya herself came backstage after I performed Mahagonny and gave me a rose," Migenes says. "That is one of my most precious memories." No doubt the two women were connected to their souls, given how Migenes interpreted her songs. (more...)

Nottingham Playhouse Sets ANY MEANS NECESSARY Cast
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2016

Full casting has been announced for the world premiere of Any Means Necessary by Kefi Chadwick, Nottingham Playhouse's first major production of 2016. In 2011 a major legal scandal broke as it was revealed that that an undercover police officer had for years been living amongst political activists in Nottingham. Not only had he been spying on legitimate protest groups but, in his undercover persona, he had been engaging in long term intimate relationships with individuals within. Dismissed by police as a 'rogue officer', it soon became clear that he was not alone and many undercover police had been spying on activists for decades, forming supposedly loving relationships and even fathering children with the female members of these groups. All this was fully sanctioned and funded by Special Branch. With the subsequent collapse of high profile legal cases following these revelations, in July 2015, Lord Justice Pitchford opened a public inquiry into undercover policing. (more...)

BEST OF 2015 by Chris Gibson
by Chris Gibson - Jan 4, 2016

My lists for the best plays/musicals in St. Louis is in chronological order. I'm not limiting myself to any specific number of entries either. These are simply the best productions and performances in various categories that I witnessed during a packed year filled with companies closing and new ones opening. It continues to be a great time to be a theater-goer in our town, with many, many choices of quality shows available for your viewing pleasure on any given day or evening. My favorite show among all thesel selections just might be Upstream Theater's THE RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER. My son and I attended, and were simply delighted by the mix of music and drama occurring on stage. It was a magical experience that I was able to share with my then nine year old little boy, and we both highly recommend that you check out the band Sleepy Kitty. (more...)
