Before the annual stroll around The Galleria in search of holiday gifts both selective and silly, it’s time to contemplate what occurred on local stages in the past 12 months.
Story: A performing troupe under the direction of a Leading Player presents the tale of a young man named Pippin for its audience. We are told that the story will unfold in a series of segments under such titles as “Home,” “Glory,” “The Flesh,” “Revolution,” “Encouragement” and “Ordinary Life,” followed by an all-stops-out grand finale in which Pippin will perform an act of derring-do.
Newport, Rhode Island, is a Christmas wonderland from November to January, with three of the most spectacular mansions (The Breakers, The Elms and Marble House) decked to the nines and the downtown harbor transformed into a quaint ice-skating rink with Santa and Mrs. Claus arriving via yacht.
Story: Singer/musician J.R. “Johnny” Cash was born in Arkansas in 1932 and died in Nashville in 2003. His impoverished childhood was grounded by a hard-working, God-fearing family, values that shaped his own philosophy. He was married twice, divorced once and briefly widowed after the death of his second wife, June Carter Cash, his spouse and oft-times performing partner for 35 years.
He is nothing like we have had in St. Louis lately: Jason Heyward is big, strong, athletic and yes, African-American. The last African-American starter for the Cardinals was Reggie Sanders back in 2005. Four years ago, the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Heyward was considered the consensus No. 1 MLB prospect. Why not? He has a rocket right arm, arguably the best in baseball. He has incredible range in right field. He could be the best defensive outfielder in the game right now. Not many in history have two gold gloves by the time they are 25 years old. He also is fast enough to steal 20 bases a season.
A St. Louis holiday tradition is making its 'entrée' onto The Touhill stage this month: Saint Louis Ballet's production of The Nutcracker is set for 10 performances, from Dec. 18 to 23.

Since the fear of public speaking is one of the main fears people have, facing it is the first step in lessening it. But we really don’t want to eliminate it completely! Toastmasters tells us to take the “butterflies in our stomach and teach them to fly in formation.” A Toastmasters club is the perfect setting for this. It is a nurturing environment where many have been in your shoes and can easily relate to the courage you’re demonstrating.
From its beginnings as a Catholic women’s college in 1915 to today’s global coed campuses, Webster University is celebrating a century of local and worldwide impact.
Sometimes, dreams do come true. And sometimes, it's not wildly difficult to make that happen. Gardeners, once they learn of it, dream about the Chelsea Flower Show. So do some of us who just love the beauty of botany. This year, I was able to go.
If you enjoy the finer things in life, you expect to travel in style and comfort. Fortunately, today’s automakers can provide luxury cars in a variety of price ranges.
Imagine traveling back to a time when pristine French furniture and decadent Danish dinnerware filled stunning Scandinavian castles. With Davidson Scandinavian Antiques, the dream of owning these rare pieces for your own home can become a reality.
Donna Heckler interviewed for a fantastic job and felt great about her prospects. Later that day, the St. Louis woman learned she had breast cancer. “The question became, Do I stay home and focus on fighting the cancer? Or do I go out, work at a job with considerable travel, and live my life? I chose to work. I chose to live my life. I tried to live like a lady every step of the way,” she writes in the introduction to her book, Living Like a Lady When You Have Cancer.

I awaken from an unexpected nap on the Sun Deck of the S.S. Catherine cruise ship. We are docked in southern France, on the Rhône River, just outside the Medieval walls of Avignon. A tarp over my lounge chair shades the sun and a gentle breeze from the dormant mistral, the famous wind of Provence, whisks away the heat. I had been replaying the morning sightseeing through groves of sunflowers and perfect picturesque villages graced with startlingly blue sky and lavender-scented air. Perhaps the dreamy glory of the moment and memory lulled me to sleep—-or maybe it was the rosé served at lunch.
Anne Allred and Drew Lammert added hints of Southern charm to their nuptials for an affair that was fun and care-free, much like the two of them.
To kick off the Saint Louis Art Museum’s new exhibit, Atua: Sacred Gods from Polynesia, George Nuku led a ceremony in the museum’s East Wing to prepare the space for the sacred objects that will be on display. Atua are a concept embedded in ancient Polynesian culture, and these sacred artworks are believed to be deities and the spirits of ancestors.
