Flora Borealis

Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 20
,

Summers in St. Louis are no picnic, what with the brutal heat and oppressive humidity. At night conditions improve a bit, and that's the time to get outside and experience the city. The Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard; www.mobot.org) takes full advantage of the nocturnal respite with Flora Borealis, a nighttime-only special exhibition. Thanks to the artistic and technical brilliance of AVI Systems Inc., a section of the garden is temporarily transformed into a new experience with active lights, moving images and sounds that alter and enhance the familiar landscape. Tickets for Flora Borealis are $10 to $25 and are sold for specific time slots each night (Thursday through Tuesday through August 26). While you're waiting for your scheduled time you can take advantage of MoBOT’s new tented biergarten, which features live entertainment on select nights. $10-$25

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

alicenmoser@gmail.com

In an era when a woman's time and attention were to be occupied by her husband and household, Charlotte and Emma aspire to be elegant, economical, and enlightened wives... Useful and Necessary Ingredients is a fast-paced experimental play which steps into the minds of two women of the 1930s, as they sprint between memory, desire, and immediate experience. Using scientific and social knowledge inherited through generations of women, watch as the pursuit of perfection teaches them to flip the status quo. $15

The exhibition is curated by Taraneh Fazeli and artists include Fia Backström, Danilo Correales, Jen Liu, Sondra Perry, Cassie Thornton and Constantina Zavitsanos. Free
