Introducing Play at Home: Short Plays to Be Enjoyed at Home!The Rep has teamed with four nationally renowned theatres to present Play at Home, a series of micro-commissioned short plays from some of the American theatre's most exciting and prominent playwrights.
In honor of our online stream of The Cake going live yesterday, we would like to share with you these EXCLUSIVE, NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN outtakes from our publicity photo shoot with star Denny Dillon. We directed Denny to act as if she were stressfully struggling to finish a cake on time. So Denny, comedic mastermind that she is, went to work!

We are heartbroken at the loss of playwright Terrence McNally. His legacy in our industry is titanic – for both the incredible depth and variety of his work, as well as for his elevation of LGBT stories and perspectives on stage. The Rep produced McNally's MASTER CLASS in 1998 and MOTHERS AND SONS in 2016 – the latter production is pictured here, featuring @michaelkeyloun and @harrybouvy. Photo by @prophoto.stl. His family asks for donations to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Dramatists Guild Foundation in his memory.
Rep staff members are officially transitioning into "work from home mode" this week. We're going to miss seeing each other every day, and we definitely wish we could be sharing our on-stage art with you. Rest assured: we're still finalizing big plans for our offseason and 2020-2021. In the meantime, let's check in: how's everyone holding up? What creative projects are you pursuing? We're here to talk, commiserate and connect. • • • #repfromhome #virtualrep #repinoursweats #repquarantine #repstl #theatre #goseeaplay #stl #stlouis #stlouismo #stlouisgram #stlgram #stlmade #stlouisart #explorestlouis #stlrepresent
An update from The Rep: Following the declaration of a state of emergency in St. Louis County surrounding the spread of #coronavirus (COVID-19), The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis must place the safety of its patrons, staff and artists above all other considerations. Based on the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization’s recommendations against large group gatherings, The Rep has decided to cancel all performances and events beginning Monday, March 16 through the end of the season. We plan to postpone our Mainstage world premiere of Dreaming Zenzile, with the goal of mounting it this summer. We do not take this decision lightly, knowing that the communal connections made at public arts events are some of the strongest tools against the fears and anxieties of this moment. As we ride out this turbulent time together, we remain resolutely committed to the power of storytelling to change lives and uplift our shared humanity. Thank you for your understanding and for being a part of our Rep family. We look forward to welcoming you home again this summer. We will be reaching out to ticketholders shortly via email, phone and/or text with more details regarding ticket options. For additional updates, stay tuned to repstl.org and our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
