Tuesday, April 6
The Midnight Company is taking theater out of the theater proper and bringing it to the people in a big way with its production of Conor McPherson's drama St. Nicholas. The one-man show (starring Joe Hanrahan, last seen as Beethoven in Midnight's The Hunchback Variations) plays at 7 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays in April (through April 20) at John D. McGurk's Irish Pub (1200 Russell Boulevard, 314-487-5305). The business-types call that synergy, but it's really just common sense. St. Nicholas is the story of a burned-out theater critic's unnatural obsession with a much-younger actress and said critic's spiral into an underworld of vampires; who's not going to need a nip or two while watching an Irish drama about an Irishman with a wretched love life and a monster problem? Tickets are $10, and reservations are recommended.
