The New Jewish Theatre

May 3-20

njt_jacob_and_jack_graphicA door slamming back stage farce, Jacob and Jack brings together the worlds of contemporary and Yiddish theatre. Jack Shore, a well-known television personality, is appearing for one night only in a tribute to his grandfather, Jacob Shemerinsky, great star of the Yiddish Theater. Backstage in his dressing room, Jack confronts his challenges as an actor - and as a husband to his co-starring wife. Simultaneously, 75 years in the past, Jacob has problems of his own. Actors play their past and present roles in a dizzying display in this time-traveling farce that is a smart and classic marital farce ingeniously complicated by historical layering and dual role-playing. From its Yiddish roots to its long obsession with Hollywood, it is a beguiling comic love letter to the American theater, and a clever tribute to Yiddish Theatre and to vain glorious stage actors.

Professional Theatre Council announces the 2012 Kevin Kline Award nominees

By Charles Robin

January 24, 2012 -- After a year of extraordinary theater performances throughout the St. Louis area, the results are in. With the Oscar nominations announced it is time to focus on St. Louis. This year’s Kevin Kline Award nominees will be announced at a reception to be held Monday, January 30 beginning at 6:00pm.

This reception is free and open to the public. Press, patrons, and artists are all welcome. Tucci & Fresta Trattoria and Bar will host the event at 15 N. Central in Clayton. Tito’s Handmade Vodka is sponsoring a complimentary signature cocktail and there will be a cash bar.

The announcement of the nominees will begin at 6:30pm. A celebratory reception will be held immediately following. All are encouraged to join the theatre community as it comes together to celebrate its successes as a community. Join us for the announcement or come down afterwards to congratulate the nominees.

The nominees for each category will be posted on the Professional Theatre Council Facebook page as they are announced. All are encouraged to visit the page in advance and “Like” it in order to get up to date information on the nominations and awards ceremony particulars.

Professional Theatre Council

The Professional Theatre Council was founded in 2004 in order to promote and celebrate excellence in professional St. Louis theater. The primary catalyst for fulfilling its mission is the annual presentation of the Kevin Kline Awards. The Kevin Kline Awards honors theatre artists and productions in 22 categories. In its six seasons of presenting awards, 148 trophies have been awarded, with 45 separate theaters nominated and 20 theaters receiving awards. The awards are named in honor of St. Louis’ own Tony and Academy Awards winner Kevin Kline.

Kevin Kline

A St. Louis native and Priory School graduate, Kevin Kline won Tony Awards for “On the Twentieth Century” and “The Pirates of Penzance” before leading roles in “Sophie’s Choice” (1982) and “The Big Chill” (1983) made him a Hollywood star. Adept at comedy and drama on stage and screen, Kline won an Academy Award for his madcap performance in “A Fish Called Wanda” and received accolades for his stage interpretations of “Richard III” and “Hamlet”. Refusing to abandon his passion for theater while working in films as diverse as “Dave” and “Cry Freedom,” Kevin Kline often has been called the “American Laurence Olivier.” He most recently received a Tony nomination for his portrayal of Falstaff in Shakespeare’s “Henry IV” at Lincoln Center. 

Tito’s Handmade Vodka

Tito’s Handmade Vodka is produced in Austin at Texas’ first and oldest legal distillery. It’s made in small batches in an old fashioned pot still by Tito Beveridge (actual name), a 40-something Geologist, and distilled six times. In 2001 Tito’s Handmade Vodka unanimously won the Double Gold Medal for vodka at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, beating out 71 high-priced vodkas. In 2001 and 2007 it was awarded four-star ranking from Spirit Journal.

Tucci & Fresta Trattoria and Bar

Kim Tucci and Joe Fresta opened their new venture in 2011 at the address vacated by Portabella. As co-founders of the Pasta House Company, they are fixtures in the St. Louis restaurant scene. Tucci & Fresta features a menu of upscale Italian food, provided by the kings of Italian cuisine in St. Louis.

New Discussion Series

HotCity Theatre has created a new arts management discussion series that will include professionals from around the St. Louis region. 

John Armstrong, managing director of HotCity Theatre states, “We have two arts administration interns from SIUE this semester, and while thinking about curriculum for providing practical experience, I thought that I would email a few people to help me teach the topics I have found fundamental and/or challenging to the management of a professional theatre company. After numerous positive responses, it made sense to think bigger and offer a venue for the public to discuss these subjects. With any luck, it will provide ideas on how to make starting or running an arts organization a little less painful.”   

The discussion series will take place at various times throughout the semester, and located at: 

Clayton High School Little Theatre
1 Mark Twain Circle
Clayton, MO 63105

Admission is FREE TO THE PUBLIC and following remarks by panelists, a 20-30 minute informal and casual discussion will be tailored to an audience who wishes to learn more about the general needs and challenges for running a non-profit. John Armstrong, HotCity’s Managing Director will moderate discussion.

Important details about who, what, why, where and how at:
