Zorba

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through March 25

Kander and Ebb's Zorba is a show that many critics feel hasn't aged well. It's important to keep in mind that critics are a sullen lot, and a musical that loudly and unashamedly declares that life is worth living because of the endless flow of joy and woe is perhaps too much for the mondo dismos of the press. Zorba is an older man who pursues women the same way he dances -- with lusty abandon -- and attaches himself to Nikos, a young man who comes to Crete to get the family's mine back in the black. Under Zorba's tutelage, Nikos learns to live for the moment, because the future is "a pig's behind," according to Zorba's philosophy. Together they chase women, sing, dance and enjoy the inevitable pain because it makes their too-brief joy that much sweeter. New Line Theatre presents Zorba at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (March 2 to 25) at the Marcelle Theater (3310 Samuel Shepard Drive; www.newlinetheatre.com). Tickets are $10 to $25. $10-$25

In the Realm of Trees

Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Sept. 3

Classical Chinese artists often used trees as inspirations or the focus of their works. Trees and the natural world are the focus of the new exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org), In the Realm of Trees, which includes photographs, paintings and decorative works that glorify the beauty found in nature. The centerpiece of the show is a set of contemporary photographs called Sacred Tree on Mount Lu, made by Beijing-based photographer Michael Cherney, which was acquired for the museum's permanent collection in 2016 and will be presented for the first time in this exhibit. In the Realm of Trees opens on Friday, March 10, and remains up through Sunday, September 3, in gallery 225. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is free. free admission

Rosalyn Drexler: Who Does She Think She Is?

Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through April 17

This full-career survey of playwright, novelist and visual artist Rosalyn Drexler offers a rare opportunity to see the breadth of the self-taught artist’s work. Her paintings feature bright colors and figures appropriated from films and print media, which she cropped, enlarged and printed on her canvases and then painted over them. The effect is somewhere between photo-realism, pop art and the visual language of a dream. Chubby Checker depicts a large Chubby mid-twist against squared fields of scarlet and blue and yellow, with couples dancing in 45-sized circles to the left; a smaller Checker echoes the larger one to the right. Love And Violence is far more sharp, a suited man looming over a crumpled blonde woman, grabbing her chin. A triptych of blue windows beneath the tableau show the same man helping to assault a fellow in a trench coat. free admission

Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form

Wednesdays, Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Thursdays, Fridays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Continues through May 13

Italian sculptor Medardo Rosso was ahead of his time. Rather than creating heroic sculptures of figures from myth or doing a lucrative business in the monumental bronzes that were popular in the late nineteenth century, Rosso's sculptures seem to be caught emerging from bronze or wax. These almost-manifesting faces and forms are incredibly responsive to light, giving his work a fluid, ephemeral nature not often associated with sculpture. Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form, the new exhibition at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation (3716 Washington Boulevard; www.pulitzerarts.org), includes almost 100 examples of the artist's best work, including some of his photographs and drawings. Experiments in Light and Form opens with a free reception from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, November 11. The show continues through May 13, and the museum is open Wednesday through Saturday. Admission is free. free admission

The Royale

Sundays, 2 & 7 p.m. and Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m. Continues through March 25

The scene is the early 1900s. Professional boxer Jay "The Sport" Jackson has a dream: to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. Unfortunately, the times are not kind to a black athlete like Jackson, with racial segregation being the norm even in boxing. The Royale, written by Marco Ramirez and presented by the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, draws inspiration from the life of Jack Johnson, who became a boxing legend after defeating the undefeated James J. Jeffries in a match that was called "The Fight of the Century." This defeat was seen as a moment of advancement for African-Americans. Step up to the ring and stand by Jackson as he fights for both his title and his humanity. The Royale will be performed Tuesday through Sunday (March 10 to 26) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $43.50 to $67.50. $43.50-$67.50

Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade

Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Continues through May 7

Edgar Degas may be best known for his paintings and sculptures of dancers, but he was also fascinated by high-fashion hats and the young women who made them in the fashion capital of the world. This multimedia exhibition includes 60 paintings and pastels that depict high-fashion millinery, some by Degas and others by his contemporaries Manet, Renoir, Cassatt and Toulouse-Lautrec, who were all influenced by Degas’ work. More than 40 period hats will be on display as well, many of them by the acknowledged masters of Belle Epoque millinery, including Madame Georgette and Caroline Reboux. The exhibit is free on Fridays; admission is otherwise $6 to $15. $5-$6, free on Friday

Motown the Musical

Sat., March 25, 2 & 7:30 p.m. and Sun., March 26, 1 & 6:30 p.m.

The story of Motown founder and songwriter Berry Gordy Jr. is one of determination and luck. He met singer Jackie Wilson through family friends, and sold him a song he'd written with the help of his sister and songwriter/producer Billy Davis. That modest hit led to more songs for Wilson and an eventual No. 1 hit. Gordy used his money to segue into producing, which is how he met Smokey Robinson. Before too long, he had a fledgling record company -- Motown Record Corporation, you may have heard of it -- and was well on his way toward chart domination, crossover success with a young white audience, and ascension to the top of the music business. Motown the Musical is based on Gordy's 1994 autobiography and uses more than 50 Motown classics to tell the story of Gordy's meteoric rise. Along the way it shines the spotlight on stars such as Diana Ross, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Rick James. The jukebox musical is performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday (March 21 to 26) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $25 to $95. $25-$95
