Chuck Lavazzi

Chuck Lavazzi is the producer for the arts calendars and senior performing arts critic at 88.1 KDHX, the local correspondent for Cabaret Scenes magazine, the host of The Cabaret Project’s monthly open mic night at the Tavern of Fine Arts, and entirely to blame for the Stage Left blog at  He’s a member of the Music Critics Association of North America and the St. Louis Theater Circle. 

Chuck has been acting, designing sound, and occasionally directing theatrical productions since roughly the Bronze Age.  His one-man show Just a Song at Twilight: the Golden Age of Vaudeville, presented at the Missouri History Museum, was the opening production of the West End Players Guild’s 101st season.  He has also appeared with Stray Dog, Metro Theatre Company, The Rep, Midwest Lyric Opera, St. Louis Actors’ Studio, St. Louis Shakespeare, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, and even the St. Louis Symphony, where he narrated Peter and the Wolf. He and his lovely wife Sherry live in a house that’s older than both of them put together in the historic and utterly charming Soulard neighborhood.

With Easter weekend behind us, there's a lot of theatre coming up.

This week's events include a solo guitar recital and some big Romantic blockbusters.

The local premiere of powerful drama joins the hit list this week, along with a couple of cabaret shows.

With Easter weekend in the rear-view mirror, the local theatre scene is really hopping.

The Easter Bunny left some primo music (including a couple of Harry Potter film events) for us in our baskets.

Easter week is a traditionally slow time in local theatre, but there's still plenty of good stuff out there.

New theatre, cabaret, AND the St. Louis Theater Circle Awards this week!

Joining the hit list this week: drama from Mustard Seed and a comedy classic at the Rep.

As spring approaches, theatre and cabaret are busting out all over.
