Dennis Brown and Deanna Jent suss out local theater

Twelfth Night Think "Shakespeare meets Springsteen" and you'll understand director Edward Stern's concept, which plays out marvelously on Joseph P. Tilford's watery scenic design. The singing fool Feste (a blue-jeaned Kevin Orton) functions as emcee and stage manager for this comedy of mistaken identities and mismatched lovers. Stern's attention to character detail, beautiful stage pictures and true appreciation for Shakespeare's humor make this production a treat. Served up by the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis through November 12 at the Loretto-Hilton Center, 130 Edgar Road, Webster Groves. Call 314-968-4925. (DJ)
