Miss Saigon

Sundays, 1 & 6:30 p.m., Saturdays, 2 & 7:30 p.m., Tuesdays-Fridays, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., May 5, 1 p.m. Continues through May 4

In the midst of the Vietnam War, G.I. Chris meets Kim, a war orphan. Kim works in a bar run by the opportunistic man known as the Engineer, and she's essentially his property. Chris' tour is almost over, and even if it wasn't he'll be leaving in a matter of days when Saigon falls to the communists. Here at the end of the world, Kim and Chris find love — at least for one night. But their union has unintended consequences when the communists take over, and Kim is left behind to deal with them. The revival of Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil's bombastic musical Miss Saigon returns to the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com) for a two-week run. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday (April 23 to May 4). There's a final matinee at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 5, and tickets are $30 to $99. $30-$99

True West

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through April 28

Austin is holed up in his mother's house, working on his screenplay, when his older brother Lee shows up. The two have neither seen each other nor spoken in a few years. A film producer may be interested in Austin's script, maybe, but Lee keeps distracting his little brother from his work. Even worse, when the producer shows up, Lee talks up his own nonexistent script, and the producer shows immediate interest. The brothers' relationship is fraught at the best of times, but if Lee thinks he's going to horn in on Austin's big break, another intra-family murder may be added to their family tally. Sam Shepard's drama True West is about sibling rivalry, American men and American violence, particularly the violence practiced in the semi-mythical American West. St. Louis Actors' Studio presents True West at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (April 12 to 28) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35. $30-$35

The very best by one of Ireland's very best writers. Brian Friel's Translations is set in the fictional north of Ireland village of Baile Beag, and tells of the historical attempt to subdue the Irish people through a process of suppressing their native tongue. It is a timeless story which is at once heartbreaking, heartwarming, frustrating and funny, as we see cultures collide yet love, hope and truth live on. $20 general, $15 students/seniors/military

Another US premiere from Upstream Theater, in co-production with Stages Repertory Theatre of Houston. Directed by Kenn McLaughlin. Tim Price's Salt, Root and Roe is a poetic masterwork about the nature of change, the comfort of home, and the eternal bond of love, set against the mythical backdrop of the Pembrokeshire coast in western Wales. The play centers on identical twins Iola and Anest, who are very devoted to each other. Ageing fast, and with the time they have together more fragile by the day, they arrive at a desperate decision. Word of this reaches Anest’s daughter Menna, who rushes 25-35

Clayton Community Theatre (CCT) presents Neil Simon’s “Biloxi Blues,” directed by Jessa Knust, at Washington University South Campus Theatre, 6501 Clayton Rd, Clayton MO 63117. This well-known play, the second in Simon’s semi-autobiographical “Eugene trilogy,” centers on Eugene's observations of the contest of wills between his drill sergeant and an intellectual recruit at a Biloxi, Mississippi, Army base in 1943. Along the way, he loses his innocence in many ways. It is both a reflection on prejudice and people’s reaction to prejudice, and also hilariously funny from beginning to end; and it is the winner of multiple Tony awards. $15 - $25

Written by Tasha Gordon-Solmon. A play that mines disconnections. After Adam and Nicole’s wedding culminates in an awkwardly timed fatality, the reception spins into an increasingly strange evening that leaves the bride and groom questioning just what it is they’re celebrating. But there’s no stopping the festivities: the flower girls are running amuck, the bridal party members are preoccupied with their own flailing relationships, and everyone needs to stop ordering the blue drinks. Comedies end in marriage. Tragedies end in death. This play begins with both. 42-45

Please come out and show your support to these veterans who have waited over 50 years for a decent welcome home! $25
