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

Doctor Faustus

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 17

Christopher Marlowe was a contemporary of William Shakespeare, and Marlowe's plays were a large influence on Shakespeare's own. Of course, Shakespeare's work greatly eclipsed Marlowe's in popularity, consigning him to the past. Doctor Faustus is undoubtedly Marlowe's most famous play still — perhaps because of a persistent legend that actual devils appeared on stage during a sixteenth-century performance. John Wolbers has adapted the script for the modern era, while still keeping much of the original's poetry. Now the female Doctor Faustus is disgusted by the rampant abuse of power and position of the world's leaders, and so enters into a contract with the devil. She plans to use her new power for good, to save the weak and bring mercy to the world. But ultimate power has a nasty effect on the human soul, even when it's a noble one. Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble presents Doctor Faustus at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday) October 31 to November 17 at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

The Great Seduction

Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 18, 2019

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

The play is based on facts, stories and lines pulled directly from the Mozart family's humorous and heartbreaking letters. The Other Mozart had a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway run at HERE Arts in NYC and in London at St. James Theatre. The play continues touring theatres and universities across the US. 35.00

A divine comedy! Delivering a new and improved set of Commandments, God’s introduction of the revised laws is refreshingly positive, insisting on the separation of church and state and encouraging us to believe in ourselves, not some elderly white guy in the sky. The play is sinfully funny delivering new meaning to the phrase divine intervention and where God and his devoted angels answer some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. He’s finally arrived to set the record straight…and He’s not holding back! In God we trust. The NY Times calls it “…a gut-busting-funny riff on 42-45

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
