Into the Breeches

Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 18

As World War II rages in Europe and the Pacific, a group of St. Louis women have to keep the home fires burning. Those fires don't just burn wood, though; the ladies all miss going to the theater. With the men at war and the theaters closed for the duration, an idea is hatched. It's time for a new production of Henry V, with an all-female cast storming Agincourt. George Brant's comedy Into the Breeches! makes its St. Louis debut as part of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' In the Works program. The family-friendly play A Most Outrageous Fit of Madness (inspired by The Comedy of Errors) and two staged readings of Michael Saenz's The Thousand Natural Shocks round out the program. Into the Breeches! runs Wednesday through Sunday (October 28 to November 18) at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square; www.sfstl.com). Tickets are $25 to $55. $25-$55

Every Brilliant Thing

Sundays, 7 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Dec. 2

The unnamed child at the center of Duncan Macmillan's one-person show Every Brilliant Thing is only seven when her mother first attempts suicide. She takes it upon herself to create a list of worthwhile things in life, hoping her mother will find comfort in them and stop trying to die. She writes her favorites on numbered slips of paper ("1654. Christopher Walken's voice." "2001. Films that are better than the books they are adapted from"), and leaves them around the house for Mom to find. She grows to realize the list can help herself as well; depression is hereditary, after all. R-S Theatrics presents the life-affirming Every Brilliant Thing at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (November 16 to December 2) at the Kranzberg Arts Center (501 North Grand Boulevard; www.r-stheatrics.com). Tickets are $18 to $20. $18-$20

The Great Seduction

Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18

The great Alexandre Dumas began his writing career in the theater as a dramatist, with the occasional comedy as well. His Mademoiselle de Belle Isle was a five-act farce about lovers and a seduction contest. Vladimir Zelevinsky has loosely adapted and condensed the story down to a more manageable length in the two-act comedy, The Great Seduction. It's about a duke and countess who are paramours (but not exclusive), and Gabrielle, a fresh country girl just arrived in Paris. The duke is immediately taken with her, while the countess has set her sights on the handsome Raoul. Incensed by the young competitor's presence, the duke bets Raoul he can seduce the first woman he sees. Care to guess who shows up? (It's Raoul's fiancee, Gabrielle.) West End Players Guild presents the bedroom farce The Great Seduction at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (November 9 to 18) at the Union Avenue Christian Church (733 North Union Boulevard; www.westendplayers.org). Tickets are $20 to $25. $20-$25

Into the Breeches

Sun., Nov. 18, 2 p.m.

Building on its beloved summer productions in Forest Park and the acclaimed Shakespeare in the Streets program, the Festival now presents its very first season of contemporary American plays by writers in dialogue with Shakespeare, headlined by the regional premiere of Into the Breeches! Written by the award-winning playwright of Grounded, which starred Anne Hathaway in its New York run, Into the Breeches! is a hilarious and heartwarming look at the WWII home front and a group of ladies who band together to keep the local theater going with their very own production of Henry V. $20-40

Government employees Bob and Norma are given the job of rooting out “sexual deviants” in the U.S. State Department during the Cold War. The only problem? Both are in sham marriages to hide their own homosexuality. Told in the style of a classic TV sitcom and set during the Lavender Scare that actually took place in the 1950's, Topher Payne’s play asks how far you would go to protect yourself if it meant sacrificing others. $25 GA | $20 Student & Older Adult

La Cage aux Folles

Starts Feb. 28. Thursdays-Saturdays, 8-10:30 p.m. Continues through March 23, 2019
phone 314-534-1111
info@newlinetheatre.com

Come join us on the French Riviera for a night of love, laughs, illusions and truths, and the triumph of family over bullies and bigots. New Line continues its season in March 2019 with Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein's subversive comedy about real family values in a world that doesn't always value family. In its original 1983 production -- before gay marriage was legal -- the show was a safely old-fashioned musical comedy. But in its 2008 London revival and 2010 Broadway revival, the show was transformed from a genial comedy into a more serious story with lots of laughs. $10-30

The Breakfast Club meets Little Shop of Horrors, as New Line closes its season in June with the new sci-fi rock musical BE MORE CHILL, with music and lyrics by Joe Iconis and book by Joe Tracz, based on the bestselling novel by Ned Vizzini. It’s an honest, fearless, funny look at life in the digital age, exploring teen depression, bullying, and other current issues through the comic lens of sci-fi films of the 50s, horror flicks of the 80s, and teen movies of the 90s. The show has been selling out everywhere it runs. $10-30
