Aristophanes, the towering giant of comedy, used every kind of humour from the slapstick through sexual jokes to satire and literary parody.
Louis' premier company when it comes to raw-nerve theatrics. Louis "Really good, well done adult theatre that nobody else really sttempts here in St. Single-cell organisms, singing and dancing in the primordial ooze, more of less simultaneously discover love and dynastic tragedy.
The voices are terrific, and the tie-dyed costumes are a hoot; who knew microbiology could be so entertaining? For those who are familiar with New Line, Yeast Nation features an all-star cast of actors. Yeast Nation is probably considered odd by Broadway standards, and most likely why it never found a home there.
But that is more the reason to love it, as it epitomizes the creativity we yearn for when discovering new art. The show is very smart, and surely benefits from a second viewing to truly appreciate all of the clever writing.
Yet at the end of the day, the sights and sounds will have you captivated — all while having a lot of fun.
Come for the nonsense, stay for the soaring musical artistry. There is an incredible amount of live theatre in St. Louis, and some companies are producing challenging and decidedly different fare. New Line Theatre embraces the odd and evolving world of Yeast Nation, giving it vibrant color and effective performances that are delightfully engaging and thoroughly satisfying.
Directors Scott Miller and Mike Dowdy-Windsor and their performers bring out the zany silliness of the concept. The usual outstanding ensemble does a wonderful job in backing up all this insanity.
A nice way to while away a couple of hours with the enormous talent on stage, some good music and a few laughs along the way. The musical elements, as is usual for New Line, are top-notch. Anything Goes is not to be missed. A must for New Line fans and a great introduction to the troupe for newcomers, this spirited, in-your-face production of the Cole Porter classic feels as sharp as the needle on a new Victrola.
The whole cast shines in this laugh-out-loud production, frequently punctuated by music thanks to conductor Nicolas Valdez and a smart little band and dance thanks to choreographers Michelle Sauer and Sara Rae Womack. The entire cast of Anything Goes is simply marvelous.
And the cast looks great as the dance to the terrific choreography of Michelle Sauer and Sara Rae Womack. New Line has yet another hit on their hands, as they introduce audiences to a version of Anything Goes that they are not likely to have seen before. And in my opinion, the very best version possible.
In a word, no—the New Line Theatre motto is alive and well. Think of a veteran baseball pitcher renowned for a nasty curve. This time, Scott surprises the hitter with a fastball down the middle. As usual, New Line gets it right.
Louis' self-proclaimed 'bad boy of musical theater,' New Line Theatre. Working with the version of the script and incorporating Miller's standard deep research into the original show's origins, the boys have found an Anything Goes that's sharper, tarter and more satisfying than you'd think possible.
In all honesty, I haven't laughed so much at any play in quite some time. And it's not just the zany comedy that gets you; it's the skewering of the super-rich, talentless celebrities, the British and indeed anything else that walks across the ship's deck.
Cole Porter knew how to write tunes with smart lyrics and snappy music, and New Line Theatre finds the heart in this version of the good-humored Anything Goes. Miller and company have proven once again that they can make their own imprint on any musical -- even a revered classic like this one.
Two obvious takeaways from opening night: Kicky and kooky, this Anything Goes is a buoyant blast from the past that revitalizes one of the great, grand old musicals with charm, humor and style. Not much has changed on that score. Between the unlikely pairings and the trashy fun, this low comedy classic is bound to leave you with a smile on your face.
