BWW 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.

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...)
