New Line Theatre
New Line Theatre was created in 1991 to involve the people of the St. Louis region in the creation and exploration of provocative, alternative works of musical theatre -- daring, muscular, adult theatre about politics, religion, race, sex, violence, the media, and other contemporary issues. New Line produces
concept musicals like Company, Assassins, Chicago, Sunday in the Park with George, and Cabaret
abstract musicals like Hair, Jacques Brel, and Songs for a New World
absurdist musicals like Reefer Madness, Attempting the Absurd, The Cradle Will Rock, and Anyone Can Whistle
important (though sometimes under-appreciated) mainstream works whose original depth and innovation is now largely ignored, like Man of La Mancha, Camelot, Pippin, Sweeney Todd, and Into the Woods
and brilliant, lesser known Broadway and off Broadway shows like Floyd Collins, A New Brain, March of the Falsettos, Passion, The Robber Bridegroom, The Nervous Set, and Bat Boy.
