How did Peter Pan become the boy who never grew up? The story behind the beloved character’s magical journey to Neverland will be unveiled during the Broadway play Peter and the Starcatcher, running today through March 9 at Peabody Opera House. The five-time Tony Award-winning production, which also garnered a record-setting nine nominations in 2012, is the Broadway adaptation of the internationally popular book series, Peter and the Starcatchers, a prequel to J. M. Barrie's classic tale of Peter Pan. Author Ridley Pearson, who has called St. Louis home for the past 14 years and penned the series with author Dave Barry, recently told LN more about the book’s transformation from the page to the stage.

It’s a grim prognosis. Wolfram syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that strikes the young, presents as severe juvenile diabetes, and gradually causes loss of sight and hearing, often leading to death before the patient’s 30th birthday. Today, there is no cure.
It happened almost a year ago on a perfect spring morning: A host of dignitaries representing St. Louis’ civic, business, philanthropic and arts communities were among those gathered at a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially launch the area’s new classical music station, Radio Arts Foundation-St. Louis (RAF-STL).
The weather has been teasing us lately; but at LN, we’re hoping a new spring look is just the thing to make the warm weather come a little more quickly. We asked tarte makeup artist Erin Griffin how to make the transition. Griffin is a 10-year industry veteran who has done makeup for Miami Swim Week and the Oscar de la Renta show. She also has worked behind the scenes for the likes of Lady Antebellum and The Voice winner Casadee Pope.

“A 2013 review study tells us that nine out of 12 studies showed an association between a Mediterranean diet and having lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease,” says Kathy Mankofsky of Mercy Hospital Dietitian Services.
Everybody has a cell phone, and almost everybody texts. Texting is easy, cheap, fun, mildly illicit, and it makes you feel cool—it’s kind of like the 21st-century’s version of smoking. And not unlike smoking, it can be offensive at certain times. The good news is, after a solid decade of text capability, certain rules of order have been established; an E-tiquette, if you will. Now before you decide to forward this to the closest teenager you can find, know that I have seen as many—if not more—offenses committed by an older demographic. Texting, like chewing gum, done anywhere but in the privacy of your own room, runs the risk of offense, so here are some basic parameters.
Let’s start with the back story: Russ Henneberry is a good friend and mentor. I have learned a great deal from him about building websites and Internet marketing, among other things. Regularly, I would go to his site to read his latest article. On one occasion, I noticed an audio icon near the top of the latest post. Not knowing what to expect, I clicked on it. To my delight, Russ was reading his post, with inflections and pauses that made the article easy to understand.
Brook and Amy Dubman were just barely more than kids when we started seeing them on TV commercials: They've practically grown up before our eyes. The brother-and-sister team are co-owners of Carol House Furniture—and because of those commercials, they’re two of the most recognizable business people in town.
It’s time. The Summer Olympics' less-popular younger sibling, the Winter Olympics, has arrived. As you know, 2014 takes us to Sochi, Russia, for the games. If I’m being completely honest, I’m not all that invested. I do, however, like to be what I refer to as ‘cocktail-party competent’ when it comes to current events. Before the media blitz, if you would have asked me what Sochi was, I would have narrowed it down to Icelandic pop star or Pacific Rim hot sauce. As it is, the only thing I really hear about Sochi is that it’s a snowless, mob-controlled wasteland where a terrorist attack not only is suspected, but apparently imminent. So let’s set the yellow journalism aside and find out some actual facts about these 2014 Winter Games.

Story: An ornate chair at stage left and a stately desk at stage right rather starkly adorn the stage for an appearance by one William-Henry Ireland in London in 1826. He’s there to publicly explain how, some 30 year earlier, he fooled the experts and conned the public into believing that he had unearthed a treasure trove of original letters, poems and even a hitherto unknown full-length play by none other than The Bard himself, William Shakespeare.
High school sweethearts Rachael Craig and Kyle Smith tied the knot in a manner that completely reflected their styles and personalities: colorful, eclectic and relaxed.

Travel increases during the holidays, coinciding with cold and flu season. Being cooped up in a plane with strangers coughing and sneezing their way through the flight, along with the added stress of travel and its potentially dampening effect on the immune system, can leave you vulnerable to illness.
Holiday traditions in St. Louis are so established that it might not even surprise you that we have a ‘head elf,’ if you will, in our midst. We all have our cherished things to do this time of the year: taking in the Symphony at Powell Hall, a carriage ride through Tilles Park, or maybe ice-skating at Steinberg Rink in Forest Park.
Story: The Black Rep looks at the holiday season from two different perspectives in this musical montage conceived and directed by producing director Ron Himes.
Story: When Ben and Franklyn met in college, they knew they’d be best friends, as in “Ben Franklin,” you know? Several years later, Ben is a successful Los Angeles businessman operating a string of ‘Big and Tall’ men’s shops, while Franklyn pays the bills as an employee of a prominent law firm run by his father-in-law. What he really wants, though, is a career as a writer, so he’s taking a night-school course to help in that endeavor.
