I can’t believe it has already been a few years since the Riverdance Farewell Tour came through St. Louis in 2012. It was an incredible show (read the review here), as we sent off the legendary production that had been touring for the better part of two decades across the globe. Fortunately for audiences in […]

Extra! Extra! Read All About It! It has been probably twenty years since I watched the 1992 film Newsies, starring a 17-year-old Christian Bale as Jack Kelly – the leader of what would become known as the “Newsboys Strike of 1899.” Aside from starring the future Oscar-winning actor, and being directed by Kenny Ortega, there […]

Posted: October 8, 2015 at 7:38 am   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local

I’d like to say that I was surprised by just how amazing New Line Theatre‘s opening show of their 25th season was. But I can’t. Because honestly, at this point, what else did I expect? Is it a surprise when show after show, year after year, Scott Miller finds another musical that failed on or […]

Posted: June 2, 2015 at 7:13 pm   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local

Watching a huge production of a play or musical can be great. But there is something magical that happens when you enter an intimate venue like The Gaslight Theatre in the Central West End. Inside there are only ninety-nine seats, meaning the worst seat in the house is only a few rows away from the […]

Posted: October 17, 2014 at 2:17 pm   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local, St. Louis Events

Bonnie and Clyde (or Clyde and Bonnie, if you asked him) were a couple of American outlaws who captured the attention of the public in the early 1930s. While these two kids weren’t much more than a couple of petty robbers, commonly knocking over gas stations and small “mom and pop” stores, the media glamorized […]

Posted: June 5, 2014 at 12:31 pm   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews, Local, St. Louis Events

Chances are that if you’re watching live theatre in the Midwest, more often than not it’s tough to be genuinely surprised.
