#MusicalTheatreAF

New Line Theatre, "The Bad Boy of Musical Theatre," was created in 1991, at the vanguard of a new wave of nonprofit musical theatre being born across the country during the early 1990s, offering an alternative to the commercial musical theatre of New York and Broadway tours. The New Liners believe in what Broadway and film actor Laurence Luckinbill once wrote in a letter to artistic director Scott Miller: "Go broke if you must, but always over-estimate the public’s intelligence. They will thank you for it."

The only company of its kind in the country, New Line was founded to involve the people of the region in the creation and exploration of provocative, alternative, politically and socially relevant works of musical theatre – daring, muscular, adult theatre about politics, race, violence, drugs, sexuality, religion, art, obscenity, the media, and other current issues. And a lot of four-letter words. And every now and then, a little nudity. And lots of rock and roll.

“This is musical theatre for audiences who think that musical theatre can't be hip.” – Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“If you want to see a show and feel like you're in New York or Chicago, go see a show at New Line.” – Christopher Reilly, The Patch

Lynn Venhaus reviews "Head Over Heels" at New Line Theatre
Another Great Review! "Two years later, Head Over Heels is back at New Line. The original production was splendid. So is the revival. . . The perceptive stage direction by Scott Miller in complete sympathy with the show. The score sounds wonderful thanks to New Line band under Miller’s musical direction. The dance numbers sparkle in the exuberant choreography by Michelle Sauer and Sara Rae Womack."

Under the artistic direction of Scott Miller, New Line Theatre opens its 30th anniversary season at The Marcelle in St. Louis' Grand Center arts district.
Nearly a week after seeing The Story of My Life, I'm still thinking about it ... Scott, your director's notes were enough to set the scene for me. What I found surprising was how complicated my thoughts were while watching the show. In addition to hearing the magnificent music, and the stories that were unfolding in the lyrics, my mind's ear was also hearing the harmony of my own experiences. Friendships, grief, stories and how to capture those sincerely in a 15 minute speech ... The show has stayed with me ... Not only the music, the stunning voices, and the great set ... but also the ideas. How friendships evolve, how stories ripen with age and how the skill of the story teller elevates reality to something super-real ... it's a great show and there shouldn't be an empty seat.
Meet a few of the metro area's top leaders in theater from Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, The St. Louis Black Repertory Company, Stray Dog Theatre and New Line Theatre.
Newline Theater June 2004 The first time I saw Leah Lola. Walked into Newline Theater's production of Re**er Madness. We had no idea what to expect. The film version would not be released until a year later. Newline was one of only two companies licensed the rights to the musical that season. I was in tears thru the entire show, tears of deep belly laughter. My date's childhood nickname was Mary Sunshine. https://youtu.be/jooQDcj2UTU
