Titus Androgynous

Sat., Nov. 18, 8 p.m.

Titus Androgynous, YoungLiars' visceral adaptation of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus, has been packing in audiences for the duration of its current run. As a result, the company has extended the play for an additional weekend. The show is a comic celebration of the play's inherent violence, reveling in the gore and the madness. The final two performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (November 17 and 18) at the Centene Center for the Arts (3547 Olive Street; www.yltitus.brownpapertickets.com). Tickets are $20. $20

Independent Theatre Co. is proud to present Patience Davis, in Debbie Tucker Green's compelling, one woman show "Random." "This powerful, poetic and often comic play doesn't waste a word as it tells of a West Indian family who believe you should "never trouble trouble until trouble troubles you" – only to find it sitting in their front room, in the shape of three policeman bearing bad news." -The Guardian Run time: 50 Mins $18, $15 with Student I.D.

On Your Feet!

Sat., Nov. 18, 2 & 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 19, 1 p.m.

Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine went through the charts like a bolt of lighting in the early '80s, but the Cuban-American band had a long road of weddings and bar mitzvahs before they could get a record deal. On Your Feet!, the musical based on Emilio and Gloria Estefan's life and music, tells the story from the beginning. It's a story of love, parental disapproval, the American music industry's prejudice against Spanish-language songs and the Estefans' belief in each other, backed by the propulsive sounds of Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. On Your Feet! lights up the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com) Tuesday through Sunday (November 7 to 19). Tickets are $35 to $115. $35-$115

Of Mice and Men

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18

John Steinbeck's characters George and Lennie have worked their way into the American consciousness. The two migrant farm workers have dreams of getting their own spread and living happily after, as pure a definition of the American dream as you're going to find. But Lennie is too strong for his own good, and unable to control himself because of his mental disability. George watches out for him, because Lennie is a magnet for trouble — and trouble is relentless when you're a migrant worker, then and now. SATE closes its "season of adaptation" with Steinbeck's own stage adaptation of Of Mice and Men. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (November 8 to 18) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

Stones in His Pockets

Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 19

The high life has come to County Kerry, and Jake and Charlie are livin' it up. Hollywood is making a big-budget flick, and many of the locals are now making good money as film extras — well, better money than anybody normally makes in rural Ireland. But as the production drags on, movies, movie stars and Hollywood all lose their luster. The Americans have some strange ideas about what comprises the "real Ireland," the star can't master an Irish accent and being an extra ain't that great. Before long Jake and Charlie both feel like the film production may be the worst thing ever to happen to their home. Marie Jones' tragicomic play Stones in His Pockets requires two actors to make a village and its chipper invaders come to life. West End Players Guild presents Stones in His Pockets at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (November 10 to 19) at the Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Boulevard; www.westendplayers.org). Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25

Two characters' lives explode upon the stage: one a rebel, a creative and richly intuitive actor; the other a Bank Share manager, a conformist and assimilater. The two foils, whose paths are a mismatch, at last meet headlong in a stunning clash of counterfeit destinies. $15.00

SATE presents the stage version of John Steinbeck’s novel, Of Mice and Men. George, an affable migrant farm worker, and Lennie, a towering simple-minded pleasantly humble young man, have just arrived at a ranch to work for enough money to buy their own place. They are bound by George’s devotion and Lennie’s “pathetic helplessness”. George’s guardianship keeps Lennie out of trouble, but we soon see this is a slippery slope. Directed by Jacqueline Thompson Starring Carl Overly, Jr. and Adam Flores $15.00-$20.00

A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the old women quickly escalates into a dangerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden. $9-$13

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the Musical

Tue., Nov. 21, 7:30 p.m. and Wed., Nov. 22, 1 & 7:30 p.m.
,

The greatest debate of our time is not about politics, sports or even if a hot dog is a sandwich — it's which Christmas special is better, the Peanuts one or Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? In one hand, Linus van Pelt schools everyone on what the true meaning of Christmas is; in the other, Hermey the Elf uses dentistry for good. They both have their merits, but only one show is being presented live on-stage this week. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer the Musical brings the stop-motion classic to life, with Rudolph, Hermey, Yukon Cornelius and the ever-lovin' Bumble all learning that it's our differences that make us unique. Rudolph is performed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and 1 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday (November 21 and 22) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $23.50 to $68.50. $23.50-$68.50

During the 1950’s, the great era of Jewish humor, we meet irascible comedy screenwriter Bernie Lutz who is about to open a big movie. When he discovers to his surprise – and chagrin – that his name appears on Senator Joseph McCarthy’s infamous “black list,” Bernie is confronted with the dilemma of naming names and implicating his writing partner in order to save himself and his career. This poignant solo comedy shows one small man facing the tough American events of the mid-20th century. A story as relevant today as it was during the McCarthy era. Cast: Phil Johnson. Q&As 41-44

Barbara Robinson’s classic comedy comes to the Florissant Civic Center Theater. The Herdman are an awful bunch of kids. So when the Herdmans show up at church (because they heard there were free snacks) and suddenly take over the Christmas pageant, the other kids are shocked. It’s obvious that they’re up to no good. But Christmas magic is all around and the Herdmans, who have never heard the Christmas story, start to reimagine it their way. This year's pageant is like no other, but maybe that's what makes it so special. $10
