St. Louis' arts community is gearing up for a big season of live shows this fall! We went straight to the top and asked local arts and entertainment leaders what they're most excited about in the upcoming season:
Story: Travis has a predicament. He’s invited Shawn back to his apartment, and there’s a strong mutual attraction between them. Just as the relationship is getting intimate, though, Alyse walks through the door with her boyfriend, Ryan. Travis tells Shawn not to worry, that Alyse is just his wife.
Story: Fresh out of prison, Percy Talbott arrives in the middle of winter in the town of Gilead, Wisconsin in the 1990s, a place she selected based on a photo she saved from a travel book. Sheriff Joe Sutter meets her and, though puzzled why anyone would want to settle in the depressed hamlet, arranges for her to work at the Spitfire Grill, the only restaurant in town.
Story: It’s 1816, and a group of young poets, philosophers and artists has gathered at Lake Geneva in Switzerland for a summer of sailing, writing and late-night conversations. With steady rain forcing them to stay inside on many days, they entertain themselves by telling old German ghost stories. This inspires one of them, George Gordon (aka Lord Byron), to propose a contest in which each of them will write a ghost story.
A St. Louis first will be unveiled next month in the Grand Center Arts District: The Public Media Commons is being described as a 'playground for the mind and the senses.'
