by BWW News Desk - Jan 10, 2017

Following 2012's production of Miss Julie, Classical Theatre Company will produce its second play by the Swedish great August Strindberg in The Ghost Sonata. This dark examination of family was originally produced in 1908 and has disturbed audiences ever since. "Strindberg had a very unhappy family life - particularly his childhood. This play was his attempt to exorcise those Ghosts through this supernatural drama," says CTC chief John Johnston. "We're excited to bring this rarely produced play to our Houston audiences. We've done a good job over the years in exposing our audiences to age-old plays that they've never seen on stage before. Most theatergoers are familiar with his other plays like Miss Julie, The Father, or A Dream Play, but The Ghost Sonata was his last great play, and perhaps his most overlooked." (more...)

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's Timeless Classic A CHRISTMAS CAROL
by Chris Gibson - Dec 16, 2016

Perhaps the best way to approach Dickens' venerable A CHRISTMAS CAROL is straight-forward, with a generous helping of music, sterling performances, and some cool effects to liven up the proceedings. After all, the story, which dates from 1843, has been reworked, parodied, and used as a device by nearly every sitcom and animated show ever made. So, what's old seems new again in The Repertory of St. Louis' current presentation for the holidays. And, what a treat it is. David H. Bell's adaptation is faithful to the spirit and language of the story, which occurs when the industrial revolution has wreaked havoc on the lives of both the old and young. Filled with energy and enthusiasm, this is an absolute must-see for the Christmas season! (more...)
