Fresh-squeezed Limelight: New features and weekly e-newsletter


As we roll out a portion of our reboot today, we are debuting several new magazine features. We’re going to send out a weekly e-newsletter highlighting our content on Fridays, instead of individual email notifications for every post.

Beginning Monday, March 5, we are going to adhere closely to the following schedule, so come back to see us often! We will have articles uploaded daily and maintain a feature rotation.

Of course, we will post news releases, reviews, columns and other content throughout the week, without a specific schedule. For now, here are some of our fun new features:


A Monday Memo to briefly wrap-up what we saw on stages over the weekend, and what coverage will be coming during the week.


Our new breezy People column called “Bright Lights” will stitch together fun, topical light and bright items about our local arts and entertainment tribe.  You are welcome to provide suggestions and items:

(We are previewing it today, though):

New reviews will start going up. It’s a process.

(Recent reviews include “Infected” and “Blackbird”). We will be posting many more. Thank you for the time and patience to get this makeover up and running.)


“Go See a Play: What’s Happening This Weekend” will provide information about all the openings and plays that continue in our bi-state region — community and regional professional.

Here is yesterday’s post:


Our “Take Ten” Q&A Feature with a local talent. This replaces the Talent Spotlights.

In our STL Arts & Culture Features, we will post In-Depth Features/ Cover Story/ We will look at the bigger picture, innovators, special milestones, big events, and all sorts of arts topics – issues, the movers and shakers, and people in the news.

Extra, Extra, Read All About It!

Speaking of news, our News & Features section is chock-full of notices about seasons, shows, cast announcements, events, company announcements and more. We’ve placed them in STL News & Notes.
