Jesus Christ Superstar

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 28

Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Jesus Christ Superstar is having a bit of a moment, thanks to the well-received Easter Sunday live broadcast on NBC.

The story depicts the last week of Jesus' earthly life and his rapidly fraying relationship with his disciple Judas Iscariot. Stray Dog Theatre performs the show at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (April 12 to 28) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). There are additional shows at 2 p.m. Sunday and 8 p.m. Wednesday (April 22 and 25). Tickets are $25 to $30. $25-$30

Judgment at Nuremberg

Through April 28, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., April 29, 2 p.m.

After World War II finally ended, the Allied powers began a series of investigations into non-combatant crimes committed by German citizens under the Nazi regime. Abby Mann's drama Judgment at Nuremberg is a fictionalized account of one such tribunal, which saw a handful of German judges and prosecutors tried for knowingly sentencing innocent people to death for crimes of "blood defilement" (that's sex with Jewish people for you non-Nazis). How does a respected jurist sink to collaborating with evil? The tribunal wants to find out, but it may not like what it discovers. Midnight Company presents Judgment at Nuremberg at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 25 to 29) at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org). Tickets are $18 to $20. $18-$20

The Dresser

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 29

Sir spends his waning years traipsing around the English countryside managing, producing and starring in Shakespeare's eternal dramas. He's worn out as the air raid sirens keep sounding in the distance. Yet the show must go on, and tonight he plays King Lear, his signature role. It falls to Norman, Sir's longtime dresser, to get the legend dressed, made up and ready for the curtain. But Sir can't recall his opening line, and time is pressing. Ronald Harwood's play The Dresser is a testament to the last of the "grand" actors who were larger than the roles they played, and a cunning examination of King Lear's relationship with his Fool, as played out by two consummate professionals who care for one another as much as they resent one another. St. Louis Actors' Studio presents The Dresser at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (April 13 to 29) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35

A Tree, Falling

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sun., April 29, 2 p.m. Continues through April 28

Lenny has a problem with strangers showing up at his house and peppering him with personal questions. The retired physician is fed up with the interruptions, completely unaware that it's the same person every time — Lola is a social worker assigned to check up on the old man, a fact he never remembers. For Lenny the past is gone and the future is unknowable; all he has is right now. The reality of his dementia soon affects Lola as well. If we can't remember the joys and sorrows of our lives, are we really alive at all? Ron Elisha's quiet tragicomedy A Tree, Falling explores the value of memory and life itself. Upstream Theater presents A Tree, Falling at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (April 13 to 28), and at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at the Kranzberg Arts Center (501 North Grand Boulevard; www.upstreamtheater.org). Tickets are $25 to $35. $25-$35

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson

April 26-28, 8 p.m. and Sun., April 29, 2 p.m.

Andrew Jackson was an irascible old soldier who ran for president and won the popular election on the back of his plainspoken manner and tough talk. But because no candidate won an electoral majority, the power elite chose someone else to do the job. In his anger at being snubbed, Jackson and his supporters founded the Democratic Party and roared into the presidency four years later. He fought duels while in office, survived an assassination attempt and ran roughshod over anyone who stood in his way, forcing Native American people onto the Trail of Tears and upholding slavery. The Alex Timbers and Michael Friedman musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson romanticizes the man as a violent heartthrob who uses populism and force to reshape America, for better and for worse. The Saint Louis University Theatre performs the show at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 26 to 29) at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square; www.kranzbergartsfoundation.org). Tickets are $5 to $8. $5-$8
