Eight people, twenty-five months, one room. Thanks to the kindness of a few loyal friends and coworkers, Anne Frank and her family were able to find a brief solace from the Nazi invasions of the 1940s. It’s an amazing tale showing that courage, strength of character and generosity can help you through the toughest of times, all told through the eyes of one bright young girl who had the foresight to keep a detailed diary that has allowed her memory to live on.

BWW Reviews: The New Jewish Theatre's Compelling Production of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANKBWW Reviews: The New Jewish Theatre's Compelling Production of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
by Chris Gibson - Oct 15, 2014

Few stories are as poignant and compelling as The Diary of Anne Frank, and this adaptation by Wendy Kesselman (originally scripted by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett) is made even more so by enhancing the elements already present that deal with her Jewish faith and burgeoning womanhood. The current production by The New Jewish Theatre is simply heart wrenching in its exquisite and engaging execution. A wonderful cast and sensitive direction allow this true and tragic tale to blossom fully. You can't help but be moved by the events that transpire, and you'll find yourself thinking how important it is that we never forget what happened so that we make sure it is never repeated.

The Group Rep presents as their first production of their 41st Season Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire directed by L. Flint Esquerra, produced by Kellie Brook Malone for the Group Rep. This Pulitzer Prize and Drama Critics Circle Award-winning play famously recounts how the faded and promiscuous Blanche DuBois is pushed over the edge by her sexy and brutal brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Considered to be one of the most remarkable plays of our time, the play solidified Tennessee Williams' position as one of the most important young playwrights of his generation. (more...)

BWW Reviews: POTS at The Works Series Takes a Giant Step with 4000 MILESBWW Reviews: POTS at The Works Series Takes a Giant Step with 4000 MILES
by Joseph Baker - Jul 13, 2014

Amy Herzog's family drama (albeit a drama with a number of very funny moments) 4000 MILES is unobtrusively generating a thoughtful, low-key alternative to the outsized HAIRSPRAY (already a sellout at 'Big Sister' Playhouse on the Square just a block or so away); and it's a safe bet that a number of theatre-going Memphians are already trekking south to DeSoto Family Theatre's epic presentation of LES MISERABLES. However, this intelligent, intimate little piece is currently providing a rewarding alternative at Theatre Works, quietly nestled across from the parking garage at Overton Square. (more...)

I thought it was time to start compiling my best of 2014 since this past year was such an exceptional time for theatre in St. Louis. Although we lost the wonderful contributions of the now defunct HotCity Theatre, there are still new companies starting up and producing quality productions in our region. HotCity will certainly be missed, but when one door closes it always seems like another one opens, and that's a good thing to remember. (more...)
