Gaslight Theater 358 N. Boyle Ave., St. Louis St. Louis - Central West End


The seventh edition of the LaBute New Theater Festival returns for a four-week run, courtesy of St. Louis Actors' Studio. The celebration of new, short theatrical works is one of the more popular tickets in town, as it presents challenging, thoughtful plays to a discerning audience. As always, the eponymous playwright contributes a new piece ("Great Negro Works of Art"), which will be performed at every show. This year's six other finalists are performed in two batches, with three presented the first two weeks of the run and the other three closing out the festival's final two weeks. Performances are at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (July 5 to 28) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35.

LaBute New Theater Festival, Set II

Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through July 28
Gaslight Theater 358 N. Boyle Ave., St. Louis St. Louis - Central West End


The first half of this year's LaBute New Theater Festival was absolutely outstanding. Can the second set of plays top it? There's only one way to find out. Neil LaBute's funny and scathing "Great Negro Works of Art" closes this half of the fest, which also includes Richard Curtis' "Predilections," Joseph Krawczyk's "Henrietta" and "Sisyphus and Icarus a Love story" by William Ivor Fawkes. All four plays are performed and directed by working St. Louis actors. The second half of LaBute fest runs 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday (July 19 to 28) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35.
