Audubon and Beyond

Mondays-Thursdays, 7:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m. Continues through June 15
,

Among those of the ornithological persuasion, the St. Louis region is of prime interest because of our natural flyways. The Mississippi River underwrites that status; it's a superhighway for migrating birds. We have another feathered fact to boast about: While the renowned birdman John James Audubon was still alive, the St. Louis Mercantile Library acquired a rare reserved copy of his masterwork, Birds of America, from his family. This is tantamount to owning a Gutenberg Bible. Celebrate it with the exhibit Audubon and Beyond: Collecting Five Centuries of Natural History at the St. Louis Mercantile Library on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-7240 or www.umsl.edu/mercantile). The extensive exhibit incorporates sections relating to not only birds but also reptiles, mammals, fish, insects, humans, astronomy, geology, meteorology and more. Audubon and Beyond is open 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday (November 9 through June 2017). Admission is free. free admission

Daniel Shular: Camp-Pain, 2016

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 28

Is it too soon to relive the 2016 presidential race? Daniel Shular is an independent photojournalist who followed the campaign from start to finish as it criss-crossed the country. He photographed the supporters and protesters who filled the streets as America struggled with the most unusual election season in recent memory. With no news organization to subsidize his journey, Shular resorted to sleeping on couches, in his car and occasionally springing for a room in a seedy motel. Camp-Pain, 2016 is an exhibit of Shular's best work, some of which you may recognize from Fox News, Al Jazeera, the Daily Mail or any of the other outlets that bought his photos as he followed the race. The show is open Tuesday through Saturday (January 3 to 28), at the Dark Room (615 North Grand Boulevard; www.thedarkroomstl.com) with the opening reception on Friday, January 6. free admission

An American in Paris

Saturdays, 2 & 7:30 p.m., Tuesdays-Fridays, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 29, 1 p.m. Continues through Jan. 29

American G.I.s Jerry and Adam decide to stay in Paris after World War II to pursue their artistic goals, Jerry as a painter and Adam as a composer. Joined by Henri, a wealthy heir who dreams of becoming a a song-and-dance man, the three get back to living life in peacetime. There's also the matter of Lise, the beautiful French dancer Jerry recently bumped into — she's worth sticking around for as well. But Jerry's not the only one dazzled by her charms, and the course of true love never did run smooth. The stage version of An American in Paris is inspired by the 1951 MGM film, and it features the same swooping romance and exceptional dancing that made its namesake a classic. An American in Paris is performed Tuesday through Sunday (January 17 to 29) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $25 to $95. $25-$95

One Last Job

Mondays, Tuesdays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 5 p.m., Tue., Feb. 7, 8 p.m. and Wed., Feb. 8, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 5

Ireland has had more than its fair share of woe over the past century. The 1916 Irish Revolution would become a drawn-out civil war, exacerbated by numerous factions with different ideas of what a free and independent Ireland should look like. Local playwright Patrick Conroy pays tribute to the centennial of the Irish Revolution with his new play, One Last Job. A young English soldier in Ireland meets an older IRA operative who has recently taken a step back from the armed struggle. But just because the older man is out of the game doesn't mean the players see him as off-limits — and being seen with an English soldier is a good way to get permanently retired. Cocktails and Curtain Calls presents One Last Job at 5 p.m. Sunday and 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday (January 23 to February 5), and again at 8 p.m Tuesday and Wednesday, February 7 and 8. All shows take place at McGurk's Irish Pub (1200 Russell Boulevard; www.eventbrite.com).Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25

Impressions of War

Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 12

War is often commemorated in statues and portraiture with a political slant. Our generals are heroic and our troops are manly, while the other guys are all slobs and monsters. But some artists document war without an official commission. Francisco de Goya made his print series The Disasters of War during Napoleon's occupation of Spain, and de Goya pulled no punches in depicting the inhumanity, cruelty and depredations wrought in the name of conquest. These 80 prints are part of Impressions of War, the new exhibition in galleries 234 and 235 at the Saint Louis Art Museum in Forest Park (www.slam.org). Impressions of War also includes Max Beckmann's portfolio Hell, which he created in Berlin in the immediate aftermath of World War I. Jacque Callot's series on the religious wars that rent apart Europe in the mid-1800s and Daniel Heyman's Amman Portfolio — the story of what occurred in Abu Ghraib prison, as told by Iraqi inmates — are also part of the exhibit. Impressions of War is on display from August 5 to February 12, 2017. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, and admission is free. free admission

Japanese Painting & Calligraphy: Highlights from the Collection

Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 12

Despite its recent expansion, the Saint Louis Art Museum (www.slam.org) does not have enough space to display all the art in its various collections. This is why exhibitions are rotated periodically, and it's also why the new show Japanese Painting & Calligraphy: Highlights from the Collection is noteworthy. A pair of folding screens painted by Kaihō Yūshō in the sixteenth century are the main draw, having not been on display for seven years. Yūshō painted an ethereal landscape using ink and gold that represents the illusory nature of the material world. Japanese Painting and Calligraphy is on display Tuesday through Sunday (August 19 to February 12) in gallery 225. Admission is free. free admission

Humans of St. Louis

Saturdays, Sundays, 12-5 p.m. and Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 4

If you do a lot of walking, you will encounter any number of people. You don't really meet them, though. To do that you'd have to stop and engage in conversation, which means listening more than speaking. It's an old-fashioned thing to do in a country dominated by social media, which is more about broadcasting our own beliefs and ideas. Humans of St. Louis (the local wing of the "Humans" movement started by Brandon Stratton's Humans of New York project), is a documentary storytelling collective that aims to meet in person individual St. Louisans and give them a platform to discuss what's on their mind. Photographers Lindy Drew, Caroline Fish and Dessa Somerside have met more than 1,200 people during the project. The art exhibition Humans of St. Louis is a collection of their favorite encounters. The show opens with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, December 9, at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; www.racstl.org). The show remains up through February 4, and the gallery is open daily. free admission

All My Sons

Wednesdays-Fridays, 8 p.m., Tuesdays, 7 p.m., Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Jan. 29, 2 & 7 p.m. Continues through Jan. 28

World War II has been won and done for just over a year, and Joe Keller's life still hasn't returned to normal. There is the pain of his missing older son Larry, presumed by most to be killed in action at this point, but Joe's wife Kate refuses to give up hope. There's also the matter of Joe's former business partner Steve, still in prison for shipping defective engine parts to the military. The corners cut by their factory resulted in the deaths of 21 American pilots, and the stain of it still clings to Joe. When his second son, Chris, proposes marriage to Steve's daughter Ann, Joe's life begins to fall apart. Arthur Miller's tragedy All My Sons is a stark look at the failures of a man who has the appearance of decency but not the morals. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis continues its season with All My Sons. Performances take place Tuesday through Sunday (January 6 to 29) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $18 to $81.50. $18-$81.50

Constellations

Wednesdays-Fridays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 2 & 7 p.m., Tue., Jan. 24, 7 p.m., Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m. and Tue., Jan. 31, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 5

Noted musical philosopher Haddaway had a minor but contagious hit single with his ruminations on love and what it is, but playwright Nick Payne frames the many possibilities of human romantic relationships through a prism of theoretical physics and its conception of the multiverse. Marianne, a physicist, meets Roland, a more regular sort, at a party; there is an undeniable spark between them. In one universe, the two pursue the relationship after the party breaks up. In a parallel universe, they don't. All of the possible permutations of their relationship (potential and real) lead somewhere, and all of these outcomes are contained within Constellations. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis presents Constellations Tuesday through Sunday (January 20 to February 5) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $43.50 to $67.50. $43.50-$67.50
