Two "absorbing, amusing" "witty, bizarre" "just plain weird" short plays by Mickle Maher. Two acclaimed Midnight Co. revivals. APOLOGY/FAUSTUS gives us Faustus on his final night apologizing for not standing up to evil, in the person of Mephistopheles. (Part of FAUSTival). THE HUNCHBACK VARIATIONS is a panel discussion with Beethoven and The Hunchback of Notre Dame trying to create Chekhov's illusive stage direction from The Cherry Orchard. A brilliant meditation on creative collaboration. $15

Apology/Faustus and The Hunchback Variations

Fridays, 7 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Sept. 29

What would you do if you knew with absolute certainty that you would not live through the night? Would you spend your last hours with loved ones, or maybe try to cram as much living as possible into the time you had left? In the case of Dr. Faustus, he's spending the time offering an apology to a crowd. The good doctor has been a bad man, looking the other way while evil flourished in the world. Evil here is personified by Mephistopheles, a servant of hell who waits until Faustus' time expires and the demon can take his soul. The Mickle Maher one-act play "An Apology for the Course and Outcome of Certain Events Delivered by Doctor John Faustus on This His Final Evening" is performed by Midnight Company at 7 p.m. Thursday and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (September 20 to 29) at the Monocle (4150 Manchester Avenue; www.midnightcompany.com) as part of Faustival. Following "Apology/Faustus" is another Maher one-act, "The Hunchback Variations," which sees Beethoven and the Hunchback of Notre Dame discuss their individual attempts to create "a mysterious sound," efforts hampered by the deafness of both men. Tickets for the double bill are $15. $15

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

Love Never Dies

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

Ten years after her horrific experience at and under the Paris Opera House, famed soprano Christine Daae arrives in America with her husband Raoul and son Gustave. Life hasn't been great; Raoul has both a gambling and drinking problem, and Christine needs to find success in New York to keep the family solvent. But little does the family suspect that its invitation to visit America came from the mysterious Phantom, who now operates (from the shadows, of course) a successful attraction at Coney Island. Can the Phantom reclaim Christine's love, which he possessed for one brief night, or will she remain loyal to her dissolute husband? The musical Love Never Dies is less a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera than a second story starring the same characters, according to composer Andrew Lloyd Webber. Love Never Dies makes its St. Louis premiere at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com) this month. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday (September 18 to 30), and tickets are $35 to $99. $35-$99

Oklahoma!

Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m., Tuesdays-Fridays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 2 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 7, 2 & 7:30 p.m. Continues through Sept. 30

It's been 75 years since Rodgers and Hammerstein transformed the Broadway musical with Oklahoma!, and the show remains as fresh and popular as ever. Farm girl Laurey Williams has two suitors — cowboy Curly and farmhand Jud Fry. When Curly waits too long to approach her, she agrees to go to the dance with Jud. He's the type of broody loner who brings a knife to the social, just in case he gets a crack at Curly, but all Curly wants is to convince Laurey he's ready to get serious. Can true love win? The show is packed with songs that have long been considered classics, from show opener "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" to the frequently covered "People Will Say We're in Love." And then there's the boisterous title number, which is so irresistible that within a decade it became the state song of Oklahoma. Stages St. Louis presents Oklahoma! Tuesday through Sunday (September 7 to October 7) at the Robert G. Reim Theatre (111 South Geyer Avenue; www.stagesstlouis.org). Tickets are $41 to $63. $41-$63
