Lemp Legends: A Ghost Story

Sat., Nov. 17, 8 p.m.

It's no exaggeration to say that the Lemp family shaped St. Louis. Adam Lemp not only introduced lager to the city but began a brewery to produce the great quantities of it demanded by St. Louisans of the mid-nineteenth century. The Lemp Brewery's Falstaff beer outsold Budweiser near the dawn of the twentieth century. The next generation of Lemps married into both the Pabst brewing family and a railroad supply family, further concentrating their wealth. But the family is mostly remembered today for its slow destruction, which was brought about by Prohibition and a series of suicides. Big Muddy Dance Company explores the Lemps in the dance concert Lemp Legends: A Ghost Story. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (November 16 and 17) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.thebigmuddydanceco.org). Tickets are $25 to $35. $25-$35

Lemp Legends: A Ghost Story

All Is Calm

Sundays, 2 & 5 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Thursdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Dec. 16

On November 11, 1918, World War I ended after four exhausting years of destruction and unimaginable horrors. But even in the worst of times, humanity's innate decency can shine through the darkness on occasion. During the first year of the war, Christmas morning was marked by an official cease-fire on both sides. On the front lines troops from both sides of the conflict crossed No Man's Land to celebrate the holiday with their erstwhile enemies. Carols were sung, gifts were exchanged and a spontaneous game of soccer kicked off. All Is Calm, the Peter Rothstein, Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach a cappella musical about that quiet morning when brotherhood won out, has been a favorite with Mustard Seed Theatre audiences since the company first presented it in 2014. It's back again at Mustard Seed to mark the centenary of the last day of the War to End All Wars. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 and 5 p.m. Sunday (November 16 to December 16; no show on Thursday, November 22) at the Fontbonne Fine Arts Theatre (6800 Wydown Boulevard; www.mustardseedtheatre.com). Tickets are $15 to $35. $15-$35

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
