Story: The well-to-do Duncans of Main Line, Philadelphia seem to live in a TV sitcom from the ‘50s. Arthur is a bank president, his wife Grace spends her days dressed in heels and jewelry on shopping sprees and daughter Emma is a bundle of frazzled nerves from her wide eyes down to her bobby socks. She desperately longs for boyfriend Tommy to pop the question so they can get married and she can start her own idyllic family. Instead, Grace orders Tommy to put on a maid’s uniform and get busy with his new chores, since she’s unimpressed that he’s a waiter.
Story: Encouraged by his Uncle Mike, Mitch grew up wanting to be a jazz pianist. After college and briefly dabbling in his desired profession, however, he ends up in journalism. He does pretty well at it, too, as an ambitious sports reporter who eventually nabs a regular column for a daily newspaper as well as radio and TV opportunities that fuel the self-centered writer.

The best pitcher on Planet Earth right now is from our town. Max Scherzer is throwing a baseball better than anybody in the world. He's the pride of Parkway Central. He was a standout there, but nobody anticipated this: Scherzer leads the American League in wins and whip, and is second in strikeouts. He is the winningest pitcher in baseball in the last two years.

Play: The Lyons
Story: Ben Lyons is dying of cancer. He’s confined to a Manhattan hospital room, where a nurse periodically checks in on him. His wife of 40 years, Rita, sits in a chair by his bedside, thumbing through a magazine. He asks about his adult daughter Lisa, a recovering alcoholic, but couldn’t care less about his grown son, Curtis, a despised homosexual.
We’ve been but patient. We've ticked through the summer, faithfully buying tickets for flop after flop, in hopes that Hollywood would deliver—not an Oscar nominee, not a moving psychological drama, not even a complex thriller--just a solid, entertaining summer movie. I must admit I had high hopes for Elysium. The film boasts an Oscar-caliber cast and a trailer that seems to say, This is what you’ve been waiting for. Sadly, this too, is disappointing.
Story: Jeffrey is 10 years old and a bit too headstrong for his parents’ liking. So, they enroll him in Mrs. Helen Kirk’s manners class at their local YMCA in Steubenville, Ohio. It’s 1967, so Jeffrey and the other students in “Mrs. Mannerly’s” class dress in spiffy fashion which, after all, is part of being properly groomed and presented.
NOTE: The review below was written for the original presentation of Stupefy! last December. The latest production features three new cast members, including Chris LaBanca, Ben Ritchie and John Wolbers, who are replacing Blaine Adams, Rob Suozzi and John Foughty, respectively. Additionally, the new rendition includes a 5-minute video pre-show as well as new scenes and a new ending, all in a “faster than last time” 90 minutes.
I will be brief. It was all I could do to stomach the last seven or eight Twilight movies—at least it seemed like that many. Now, author Stephenie Meyer brings us The Host. Instead of vampires, we have aliens; and instead of…well, that’s about it.
DATE AND LOCATION CHANGED, CATERER ADDED FOR INAUGURAL ST. LOUIS THEATER CIRCLE AWARDS
Jerry Daniels, Max Scherzer
Shortly after marrying, John and Linda Armbruster built their first home in Wildwood, attracted to the area by the affordability and relative closeness to their new combined families. Almost 15 years later, that appeal has grown stronger as their family has grown, with three young girls: Julia, 9; Laura, 7; and Amanda, 6. John, a computer programmer, and Linda, a teacher at Conway School in Ladue, appreciate the family-oriented community and proximity to everything they need. We asked Linda to detail some of her family’s favorite things about Wildwood.
Performances by local professional theater companies, ranging in size from The Muny and its productions in the 11,000-seat Forest Park amphitheater to small companies performing in modest spaces throughout the area, will be recognized at the inaugural Louie Awards.
Carol and Max Schwartz
While the local theater scene felt less ‘busy’ than the last few years, a couple hundred productions were available to patrons in search of something new—or something familiar and beloved—to entertain them. Of the approximately 135 productions I viewed this year, dozens were splendidly presented. The following list ranks the 11 productions that made the most impact—in one reviewer’s opinion—in this fabulous year:
The year 2012 was tumultuous in many respects, so perhaps fittingly Wicked is the title of the production that brings down the curtain on the last 12 months. A record drought plagued the St. Louis area, temperatures sweltered in an elongated summer and the area’s economy staggered toward a slow but steady recovery. All of this took place in the face of impending doom predicted centuries ago by the Mayan calendar.
Story: Well, there’s this young wizard named Harry Potter who has great mystical powers. Harry is an orphan who now lives with his non-magical, “Muggle” relatives, dullards who hope that he will turn out ‘normal.’ Nonetheless, he and his best pals, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, become students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, presided over by Albus Dumbledore.
About a year ago, when Pamela Perlmutter took over as development director for Paraquad, she met with board members to learn more about the goals of her position. One such meeting took place in the Central West End with a board member who uses a powered wheelchair. However, when Perlmutter arrived at the designated restaurant, she discovered it was closed. She had to go to six different restaurants before finding one that could accommodate the wheelchair. When Perlmutter returned to the office, she told her staff, “If I am going to be in this line of work, I need to know the places in the community where I can go with someone who is disabled. Then I realized, if I need this, everyone needs this.”
