stages_victor_victoria_graphicA woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman?! It’s a piece of cake for out-of-work soprano Victoria Grant in this hilarious, fun-filled romp through 1930s Paris. Based on the side-splitting seven-time Oscar-nominated Blake Edwards film and backed by an exhilarating Academy Award®-winning score by the great Henry Mancini, Victor/Victoria is a warm and wildly energetic look at gender perceptions as seen through the eternal battle of the sexes.

nonprophets_logo“Reasons to Be Pretty” by Neil LaBute is about Greg, whose tight social circle is thrown into turmoil when his offhand remarks about a female co-worker’s pretty face and his own girlfriend’s lack thereof get back to his girlfriend, Steph. But that’s just the beginning. Greg’s best buddy, Kent and Kent ’s wife, Carly also enter into the picture, and the emotional equation becomes exponentially more complicated. As their relationships crumble, the four friends are forced to confront a sea of deceit, infidelity and betrayed trust in their journey to answer the question, “How much is pretty worth?” “Reasons to Be Pretty” is a hopelessly romantic comic-drama about the hopelessness of romance.

St. Louis Actors' Studio

stlas_nuts_graphicA Broadway hit, Nuts has been called the best courtroom melodrama since Witness for the Prosecution and The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. Set in a courtroom in New York's Bellevue Hospital, the story follows a high-priced call girl incarcerated on a charge for killing a violent "john". The State, represented by a court appointed psychiatrist and an aggressive prosecutor, say Claudia Faith Draper is unfit to stand trial. As testimony from experts, physicians and her parents unfolds, with her psyche and childhood dissected, she proves to the judge that she isn't "nuts" and stands legally sane at trial for manslaughter.                                                                                                                                                                \
