Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches

Starts Feb. 22. Sundays, 2 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m. Continues through March 3
,

Tony Kushner's monumental drama Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches refracts the early days of the AIDS crisis through the prism of politics, religion, sex, the Red Scare, drugs and Antarctica. All of the characters and places are created by a smallish cast that must play young and old, dying and dead, and fantasy and reality. At the heart of all of this is a series of love stories that smash into the cold philosophy of its 1980s setting. "It's everyone for themselves" is a horrible way to live and a worse way to die. The Washington University Performing Arts Department presents Millennium Approaches at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (February 22 to March 3) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.edison.wustl.edu). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches

Angels In America, Part 1: Millennium Approaches

Fri., Feb. 22, 7 p.m., Sat., Feb. 23, 7 p.m., Sun., Feb. 24, 2 p.m., Fri., March 1, 7 p.m., Sat., March 2, 7 p.m. and Sun., March 3, 2 p.m.

Perhaps Jack Kroll in Newsweek described Millennium Approaches best: “The most ambitious American play of our time: an epic that ranges from earth to heaven; focuses on politics, sex and religion; transports us to Washington, the Kremlin, the South Bronx, Salt Lake City and Antarctica; deals with Jews, Mormons, WASPs, blacks; switches between realism and fantasy, from the tragedy of AIDS to the camp comedy of drag queens to the death or at least the absconding of God.”

Winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best New Play, August: Osage County centers around the Weston family, brought together after their patriarch, world-class poet and alcoholic, Beverly Weston, disappears. The matriarch, Violet, depressed and addicted to pills and "truth-telling," is joined by her three daughters who harbor their own deep secrets. More family arrives, equally well-trained in the Weston family art of cruelty. Bursting with humor, vivacity and intelligence, August: Osage County is both dense and funny, vicious and compassionate.

The Crucible

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 23

All of Salem is whispering about what happened in the forest last night. There are rumors that Rev. Parris' daughter Betty was caught dancing naked in the woods with several other girls — which can only mean witchcraft. Now renowned witchcraft expert Rev. John Hale is on his way to town to get to the bottom of matters. It's a long way to the bottom, and before Hale and Parris can find it, dozens of villagers will be accused of witchcraft by the young women and hanged for their crimes. How can Salem, perched on the raw edge of the new world, survive the loss of so many people? Arthur Miller's searing drama The Crucible was inspired by the insanity and paranoia of McCarthy-era America and depicts a society devouring itself in pursuit of an invisible enemy. Stray Dog Theatre presents The Crucible at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (February 7 to 23) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). Tickets are $25 to $30. $25-$30

Farragut North

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 24

Stephen is an up-and-coming press secretary for a surprising presidential candidate. Or maybe that's just Stephen's spin in action. He's constantly spinning something, whether in a "candid" interview with a New York Times reporter or while regaling a backroom audience with stunning tales of his political acumen. He's young and handsome, and with his candidate's impending move to the Oval Office, there's no height he can't metaphorically scale. Of course the higher you rise, the harder the fall. House of Cards creator Beau Willimon wrote his politics 'n' power drama Farragut North after years of working on other people's campaigns, most notably Howard Dean's failed presidential run in 2004. St. Louis Actors Studio presents Farragut North at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (February 8 to 24) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35

Farragut North Playwright: Beau Willimon Directed by: Wayne Salomon Stephen Bellamy is a wunderkind press secretary who has built a career that men twice his age would envy. During a tight presidential primary race, Stephen's meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives. Farragut North is a timely story about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it. February 8-24 Performance Times: Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm Sundays at 3 pm $35.00

German Abolitionists of Missouri

This provocative play is inspired by the amazing stories of German immigrants and leading abolitionists in Missouri. Through the lens of history, we will bring to life what it means to strive for social justice for “others” when advocating within and outside of one’s own cultural group. While many Germans were staunch defenders of a “color-blind” democracy some set aside their values in order to survive and be accepted during the Civil War period. As is the case with most Americans there are contradictions in our beliefs often colliding and challenging us to clarify what is most important. $20
