So, says Andrew, what do they do to you? The "they" he means are Allisons parents, and her answer is succinct: They ignore me! Yeah, kids, its The Breakfast Club, the John Hughes teen epic that reminds us that it sucks to be in high school, whether youre a brain, a burnout, a freak, a jock, or a popular girl. The Breakfast Club is a timeless film that feels like a play since there are only seven characters (dont forget Sox-loving Carl the custodian) and really one set (the library) to go with the character-driven dialogue. The Marble Stage Theatre Company performs the stage adaptation of The Breakfast Club at Bayless High School (4530 Weber Road, Affton) what poetic symmetry. Its the perfect angsty antidote to the High School Musical nonsense sweeping the nation. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 3 through 6), so go ahead and grab some wood, bub. Tickets are $10.
