Review: TREEMONISHA at Opera Theatre Of Saint Louis

Tennesee Williams St. Louis presents The Brass Menagerie, starring Amy Jo Jackson runs May 31 through June 1 at 7:30 PM at The Curtain Call Lounge (521 N. Grand, St. Louis 63103).

Tennessee Williams St. Louis' The Brass Menagerie is a campy romp through the women of Tennessee Williams... in SONG! If you've ever wondered what it would be like to hear Blanche DuBois, Maggie the Cat or the Wingfields sing through their plays, wonder no longer - Amy Jo Jackson is here to bring all of the charm and vivacity, vivacity and charm that the South demands to these iconic women. Whether you're familiar with the works of Tennessee or not, you'll enjoy this ridiculous lark of a concert, taking you through such plays as A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Summer and Smoke, The Rose Tattoo, and many more, mashed up with the classic songs of the musical theatre canon. With Brian Nash on the keys, prepare yourselves for an evening of strong drinks, strong accents, and even stronger choices.
