Based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling

How did the Elephant get his trunk?br



How did the Leopard get his spots?br



How did the Rhinoceros get his skin?brbr



In the "Just So Stories," Rudyard Kipling created a magical world as he told his daughter fables of the animal kingdom. In "Just So," George Stiles and Anthony Drewe ("Honk!") have created a new musical that weaves five of Mr. Kipling's most famous tales together into a fanciful lesson about personal courage, individuality and friendship.

BWW Reviews: Opera Theatre of St. Louis' Unique and Amusing Take on THE BARBER OF SEVILLEBWW Reviews: Opera Theatre of St. Louis' Unique and Amusing Take on THE BARBER OF SEVILLE
by Chris Gibson - May 28, 2015

I think I bring this up every time I write about an opera, but it's Just So funny to me that most of my early exposure to the medium came through films that I saw on TV when I was kid. Whether it was an Our Gang short (the one where Alfalfa wants to give up crooning to become an opera singer), a Bugs Bunny cartoon (Carl Stallings frequently drew from famous classical works), or even something from Tom and Jerry, I was privy to melodies that would eventually work their way into my musical subconscious. That's just one of the reasons I found the Opera Theatre of St. Louis' production of THE BARBER OF SEVILLE so engaging. Add to that the fact that the brilliant, sexy, funny, and colorful films of Pedro Almodovar provided the inspiration for the look and feel of this particular presentation, and you have a match made in heaven. You should make it a point to catch all of the Opera Theatre's productions, because they're always innovative, and I especially recommend the wacky comic delights of composer Giochino Rossini's THE BARBER OF SEVILLE.

Metal Scribe Al Necro Releases New BookMetal Scribe Al Necro Releases New Book
by BWW News Desk - May 13, 2015

If you've been a fan of Alaric Al Necro Cabiling's work for Cvlt Nation, Echoes and Dust, and formerly for Summoning Spirits at SummoningSpirits.net and for Metal Rules at MetalRules.com, 'Insanity By Increments' will reveal a different side of his love for writing. 'Insanity By Increments' is a contemporary rendition of the Gothic fiction template popularized by authors such as Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley and Nathaniel Hawthorne. 'Insanity By Increments' will feature contemporary themes, plotlines and/or dialogue used by the aforementioned greats of the sub-genre, to exciting results. 'Insanity By Increments' has been given five star reviews by Diane Donovan of Midwest Book Review and Jack Magnus of Reader's Favorite. 'Modern literary short fiction is not unusual: many attempt it; relatively few do it well - especially in the style of the gothic horror approach so aptly explored by Poe, Hawthorne, and other greats. That's why it's such a pleasure to read 'Insanity by Increments': it takes some of the methods and madness of these greats and moves a step further, presenting nine short stories of contemplation and quiet horror.' - Diane Donovan 'Cabiling is a master at creating moods, especially those which border on the macabre, the obsessive and the melancholy. Each word seems selected carefully, examined and put in place Just So, and the flawed and flailing characters he peoples his work with become almost familiar to the reader as he himself is...and that's a pretty scary thing, and the handiwork of a powerful and creative writer.' - Jack Magnus 'Insanity By Increments' will delight and shock fans for years to come. Check it out and get a copy today. Promo special: Barnes and Noble is now selling the Nook Book download of Insanity By Increments for just $0.99 Promo copies of Insanity By Increments are also available to interested reviewers.

by Brian Rivera - Jun 8, 2015

I want to express the deepest gratitude to the director, Igor Goldin, for not directing his actors into a corner with this show. Each and every person onstage had a story to tell, and not Just Some façade to put on: a worry I typically have when viewing a comedic musical. Even each member of the ensemble had fantastic individuality and characterization that it makes one wonder whether an ensemble needs to necessarily “blend together” – which, in fact, is quite difficult not to do when the show decks out its actors in outrageous costumes that make Betsy Johnson and Alexander McQueen look (I won't be forgetting you, anytime soon, Sausage Dress…). Though, it's the joint effort between the lead players and supporting players that create magic on that stage, and this cast did just that. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Antaeus Offers Sumptuous and Scintillating PICNICBWW Reviews: Antaeus Offers Sumptuous and Scintillating PICNIC
by Don Grigware - Jun 28, 2015

William Inge's Pulitzer-Prize-winning Picnic depicting a small Kansas town in 1952, its strict code of morality and the inner longings of its people to break away, is perhaps his finest. Now in a stunning production at Antaeus directed ever so lovingly by Cameron Watson and boasting a superlative ensemble - actually three alternating casts: 'Deviled Eggs', 'Stuffed Peppers' and 'Pork Chops', Picnic still holds up some 60 years later, proving the omnipotence of human fragility. My visit was with the 'Deviled Eggs'cast. The music, the clothes, the hairstyles, and the cars are distinctly 50s, but goals, motivations and emotions remain the same. For those unfamiliar with the play or the uber popular 1956 film Picnic starring William Holden and Kim Novak, let's recap the plot briefly. (more...)

Let's start from the very beginning with Durango High School's Les Miserables. Our Director, Kristin Winchester, knew that a lot of kids would be auditioning for the musical, so for auditions she had us choose two contrasting songs from the musical. I often play the ingenue in shows, so it was a big change playing Eponine. I worked almost solely with Curtis Salinger, a freshman at the time, who played Marius. His curiosity and enthusiasm for this art really reminded why I love theatre. Our opening night was incredible. There was this buzz in the theatre unmatched by any other performance. I am so humbled be my experience with Les Miserables. It was an unforgettable journey.  (more...)

BWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre's SLEEPING BEAUTYBWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre's SLEEPING BEAUTY
by Barnett Serchuk - Jun 17, 2015

Remember history class in high school? The teacher presented a lecture and told us how exciting a certain historical period had been, going on to incessantly bore us because we had no recourse other than to take indecipherable notes we couldn't understand later, finally coming to the conclusion that history was, and always would be, a painstaking bore, better consigned to the college professors we were bound to meet sooner or later on our educational journey to adulthood and, hopefully, a job. That's very much what I thought about the American Ballet Theater's new production of Alexei Ratmansky's 'Sleeping Beauty.' I hate to sound churlish, but so much ink, not to mention so many dollars, have been lavished on this production, that, beyond some more extra performances and, probably, a showing on Great Performances, it will disappear within two years. At least it will be in the archives for future generations to watch. (more...)

This review was first published by KDHX 88-1 St. Louis. Opera Theatre of St. Louis has opened a very fine production of 'Emmeline,' by Tobias Picker, with libretto by J. D. McClatchy. This remarkable piece premiered at the Santa Fe Opera in 1996 to great praise. It was done at the New York City Opera in '98 (with much the same cast)—again to considerable praise. It was deemed one of the great modern operas. Except for two 'reduced version' productions the work lay fallow until this full-scale revival by Opera Theatre of St. Louis. (more...)

BWW Review: JURASSIC WORLD is Exactly the Movie You Thought it Would BeBWW Review: JURASSIC WORLD is Exactly the Movie You Thought it Would Be
by Matt Tamanini - Jun 12, 2015

Just So we are clear, JURASSIC WORLD is everything that you would expect from a movie about a theme park built around real, live genetically engineered dinosaurs; especially in a world where it's not the first park of its kind. As you may recall, starting in the 1990s, there was an ill-fated incarnation known as JURASSIC PARK, which didn't end badly enough to dissuade anyone from trying again (either on or off screen). Needless to say, things don't exactly go well this time around either. If your credulity is not strained enough by the film's basic conceits, the minutia of JURASSIC WORLD will surely finish the job. The franchise's cliché fourth film has all of the hackneyed hallmarks you have grown to love and loathe in a summer blockbuster; a man vs. beast action movie that requires the suspension of every available ounce of disbelief, but is ultimately satisfyingly entertaining; either despite, or because of, its ridiculousness.

SOUND OFF Special Edition: Top 10+ Most Important Gay MusicalsSOUND OFF Special Edition: Top 10+ Most Important Gay Musicals
by Pat Cerasaro - Jul 1, 2015

The landmark Supreme Court ruling handed down late last week instating national legalization of marriage rights for all individuals is a cause celebre for the country at large, particularly the Broadway community who has vocally and vociferously fought for equal acceptance for all for decades. Given the preponderance of LGBT people in the theatre community itself, this victory is a particular joy for many to celebrate. As a result of this momentous event, now is the ideal time to take a look back at the most important and notable musicals that have appeared on Broadway in the last several decades to shine a light on the gay community, ranging from portrayals of closeted individuals trapped and unable to find acceptance in a conservative society all the way to the out and proud representations available to see in some currently running smash hits. Additionally, who could forget all of musicals that have touched upon LGBT issues over the years - from the campy to the controversial to the highly acclaimed. (more...)
