What do you get when you add a cozy bar, a nice restaurant, outdoor seating and an attached theater that houses one of the city's premier professional theater companies? Why, the St. Louis Actors' Studio, of course! Sure, you may come for the food at the West End Grill & Pub, but you stay for the theater — and lately that theater's been nothing short of magnificent. From the LaBute New Theater Festival and striking dramas like Harold Pinter's The Homecoming, to off-site shows like Henry Schvey's take on Kate Chopin's The Awakening at the Missouri History Museum, or Daniel Damiano's Day of the Dog performed off-Broadway at New York's 59E59 Theaters, this ambitious company keeps it entertaining and engaging. And with upcoming shows by Noël Coward, Yasmina Reza and Edward Albee, the Actors' Studio shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. It's reason enough to raise a celebratory glass. Luckily, we know just the place.
