Jersey Boys

Through July 16, 8:15 p.m.

The Muny's centennial season is a sort of greatest hits celebration of musical theater, but the producers still made room for that most special of shows, a Muny premiere. In the case of Jersey Boys, it's essentially a two-fer; while the show itself is wildly popular, it still counts as a first for the Muny. It's the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, the quartet of working-class New Jersey boys who discovered that not only could they sing, they could write their own chart-topping material as well. Jersey Boys follows their meteoric rise, their brushes with heartache and mobsters alike, and friction within the band, all conveyed through more than 30 Four Seasons songs. Jersey Boys takes over the Muny in Forest Park (www.muny.org) at 8:15 p.m. Monday through Monday (July 9 to 16). Tickets are $15 to $100. $15-$100

Annie

July 18-25, 8:15 p.m.

Annie, the musical story of a spunky, Depression-era orphan who awakens the paternal instinct of a millionaire industrialist just in time for Christmas, is a perennial favorite. It has two knock-out songs ("Hard Knock Life" and the relentlessly optimistic "Tomorrow"), a well-defined heroine and a charmingly retro setting. There's also a role for a dog, and that never hurts a show. The Muny in Forest Park (www.muny.org) continues its 100th season with the heartwarming Annie. Performances are at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, July 18, through Wednesday, July 25. Tickets are $15 to $100. $15-$100

The Importance of Being Earnest

Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through July 22

Algernon Moncrief is a member of London society at the end of the nineteenth century, which means his job is mainly dressing well and maintaining an air of sophisticated boredom at all times. His friend Jack leads a similar life, only he does it from his country estate. Jack’s young female ward, Cecily, lives with him at the estate, and as an instructive measure he tells her stories of his "brother" Ernest's debauchery. But Ernest doesn't exist, and the exploits are actually Jack's, who in truth is as idle as Algernon. When Algernon learns of Jack's ploy, he sees an opportunity to get his foot in the door at the country estate. Oscar Wilde's 1895 play The Importance of Being Earnest is a comedy of manners and language at the expense of that rarest of breeds, the upper-crust ninny. Insight Theatre Company commences with the drollery at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (July 12 to 22) at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square; www.insighttheatrecompany.com). Tickets are $15 to $35. $15-$35

LaBute New Theater Festival

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

Now in its sixth year, St. Louis Actors' Studio's LaBute New Theater Festival is a win-win situation for the local theater scene. Seven new one-act plays will debut at the festival, which is win number one; win two is the fact that all seven productions will be performed, crewed, directed and costumed by local theater artists. As is tradition, namesake patron Neil LaBute always has a new work of his own in the show, which this year is entitled "4th Reich." There's a lesser-known third win hidden in here as well. The festival includes a special category for young playwrights who are still in high school, and these emerging artists get to see their work performed by professionals for an audience. This year's edition takes place at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (July 6 to 29) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35
