citilites_baby_graphicBABY tells the story in words and music of three couples on a university campus as they deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of this universal experience. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the 30-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started. A Delightful Musical Comedy.

10 Questions:

1. What is your favorite theatrical memory?
     I was 5 years old and I was one a group of kids that was chosen to go on stage with Robin Hood during the performance ( the pantomime “Robin Hood”) and we sang a song with him and then got a bag of goodies to take home. The first time I played to a house of over a thousand with lights and orchestra and everything! I was smitten!

2. When did you know you were going in to the theatre?
     I always knew I was going to do something in theatre even if it was not my full-time profession. I was just an applause junkie. With my interest in costume history I parlayed that into costume design as well!

3. What does St. Louis Theatre mean to you?
     It’s allowed me to do more of what I love to do. Meet wonderful people and have the theatre experience I didn’t think I would have. 

4. What’s in your fridge right now?
     NOOOOOOO… don’t go in my fridge the contents will eat you!

5. What was the first car you drove?
     The first car I drove on my own after getting my license was a canary yellow Audi that belonged to my father.

6. What’s the last book you read? 
    Game of Thrones by George Martin in preparation for the HBO miniseries.

7. What’s your favorite St. Louis restaurant?
     I would have to say Dressels because it’s a Welsh pub and they have great beer on tap and lots of artsy type people go there…

8. If you weren’t in the theatre, what would you be doing?
     If I wasn’t in theatre and doing my day job I would love to be an archeologist or marine biologist.

9. What is the most played song or artist on your iPod?
     Ooops don’t have an iPod.. can’t stand having earphones in my ears- it’s actually one of my pet peeves …. People usually have the volume up so loud that I can hear their music… drives me crazy.

10. What is your guiltiest guilty pleasure?
     SciFi movies and GhostHunters on the SyFy channel – yup I’m a geek!

The New Jewish Theatre

December 1-18

njt_ballyhoo_graphicAlfred Uhry sets his play in Atlanta in December 1939. "Gone with the Wind" is having its world premiere, and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta's elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. The conflict between social acceptability and cultural definition escalates when Brooklyn born Joe Farkas (of Eastern European heritage) is brought home to dinner at the Freitag family home. As events take several unexpected turns, the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are. The warm and delightful play delicately deals with issues of prejudice, assimilation and social and religious identity and faith.

stlas_mythreeangels_graphicNothing says the holidays like tropical weather and three paroled convicts! In this warm and witty tale set in French Guiana on Christmas Eve, a felonious triumvirate intervenes in the lives of an innocent family who is perched on the brink of financial ruin. Proficient in the illicit skills of theft, forgery, extortion and yes, even murder, these unlikely heroes arrive in timely fashion to remind us all of what is truly most important—confusing our long-standing moral convictions of what is right and wrong. An old fashioned and wonderfully crafted fable to take home for the holidays!
