A *huge* congratulations to Fitz Patton – sound designer of our 2019 production of OSLO – for his Tony Award win last night! Fitz's sound design honor for CHOIR BOY was richly deserved. We work with such awesome people! . . . #tonyawards #sounddesign #theatre #reposlo #fitzpatton #choirboy
Hana Sharif's tour of St. Louis wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of our city's hottest arts districts! Our friends at @foxtheatrestl were kind enough to roll out the welcome mat for Hana. That's one more item checked off Hana's St. Louis To-Do List: ✅ "See my name in lights in Grand Center." We've been reading your suggestions for future St. Louis visits and love what we're seeing! Keep the ideas coming. . . . 📸: @patricklanhamphoto @grandcenterartsdistrict #stl #stltodolist #theatre #viptreatment
You'd better believe Hana had the @citymuseum on her St. Louis To-Do List! ✅ "Ride the most iconic slide west of the Mississippi." That's two St. Louis landmarks visited for our incoming artistic director. Where should we take her next? . . . #stltodolist #stl #slidingintotheweek #ontour #citymuseum
With Hana Sharif taking over as our artistic director in less than a month, we decided it was time to show her all the amazing things that St. Louis has to offer. This week, we started checking items off of Hana's St. Louis To-Do List. Item number one: ✅ "Meet the scene-stealing wildlife at the @stlzoo." Where should Hana visit next, STL experts? Your feedback will help us determine her future destinations! . . . #stl #wildlife #stltodolist #robbiethesealion #animalsalways #stlzoo
This June, The Rep welcomes an all-new artistic leadership team. We announced Hana Sharif’s appointment as our next artistic director in 2018, and earlier this week we did the same for our new associate artistic director: Amelia Acosta Powell. We cannot wait to start working alongside these two remarkable leaders as we begin our theatre’s next act! . . . 📸: @cheshiredave and @jennygrahamphotography #stl #theatre #leadership
Sometimes you really do get the perfect ending: Steve Woolf with the cast and director of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG after the show’s final bows. We think it’s fitting to close Steve’s 33-season run as our artistic director with a show that generated so much happiness and laughter. This is going to go down in the history books as a special, special production to cap off a marvelous season. Hats off to all involved! . . . #repgoeswrong #stl #theatre #stevewoolf #goodbyefornow
We are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Ed Stern, a tremendous director and theatre leader whose work is an essential part of our history. Ed directed 28 shows at The Rep, including profound tragedies (KING LEAR, 2001), uproarious comedies (NOISES OFF, 2014) and epic musicals (SWEENEY TODD, 1997). The thing that always stood out about Ed was the joy he brought to the rehearsal room. His sense of humor, compassion and intelligence were radiant, and those qualities always manifested in the shows he directed. This is an especially bittersweet loss for us, because Ed was originally attached to direct our current production of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG. He ultimately had to step down due to health concerns, but he continued to avidly follow the production from afar. Our artistic director Steve Woolf kept a regular correspondence going with Ed, updating him on the show's progress. On opening night, Steve emailed him a hilarious detail that set designers Margery and Peter Spack had included in their set for the show: an extravagant portrait of Ed's face superimposed on an armored figure in a powdered wig (pictured). Ed was obviously tickled. "Cannot tell you how happy I am," he wrote. "Please give my love to the company." Today we give our love to Ed, his family and his many friends and artistic collaborators. We've lost a true giant of theatre, but the rest of this run is dedicated to his memory. . . . #rip #edstern #stl #theatre

Everyday we fight call a bunch of the most challenging moments in the show...including the duel between Max and Robert. Having five or so minutes of scenic duet with MASTER physical comic @jackie_of_all_traits is as good as it gets, and a highlight of my show every single night.
Ready yourselves! The great @jrrapson is taking over our Instagram account tomorrow to bring you behind the scenes of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG. What could possibly go... ummmm... you know, we’re just going to stop right there. *Closes app.* . . . 📸: @giiitch #instagramtakeover #repgoeswrong #robertgroveinthehouse #stl #theatre #dontstandnearcloseddoorswhenhesaround
