Muny Memories: 100 Years on Stage

Canfield Drive

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 3 p.m. and Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7 p.m. Continues through Jan. 27

The civic protests following the killing of Michael Brown by a police officer will enter St. Louis history as an event as momentous as the Jefferson Bank Protests of the 1960s and the Dred Scott trial of the 1850s. But in the days after Brown's death, a long view of history wasn't possible. As international media crowded into Ferguson and tried to make sense of the region's troubled history with race, equal opportunity and community policing, it felt as if the facts changed daily. It's this tangle of news personalities and deadlines that informs Kristen Adele Calhoun and Michael Thomas Walker's new play, Canfield Drive. Two reporters with very different views of the story try to piece together the truth about what happened on a hot August day on a suburban street, while also trying to keep their own pasts from becoming part of the narrative. Calhoun and Thomas have spent four years working on the script with the St. Louis Black Repertory Company, which commissioned the play alongside the National Performance Network and 651 Arts. Canfield Drive is informed by first-person interviews with people from the metro area and from around the world, and it seeks to start conversations about race, culture, history, privilege and healing. The Black Rep presents the world-premiere production of Canfield Drive at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.theblackrep.org). Performances are at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (January 9 to 27), and tickets are $15 to $45. $15-$45

Panoramas of the City

Through March 24

In a year in which the Missouri History Museum exhibition team has given us the stories of St. Louis' greatest civil rights freedom fighters and returned us to the glory days of Route 66, it would take something truly spectacular for the museum to outdo itself — and yet somehow it's done just that. The museum's new exhibition, Panoramas of the City, is as close to time travel as you can get without involving Morlocks. The show comprises seven floor-to-ceiling size images of scenes such as Charles Lindbergh speaking to a crowd of 100,000 people on Art Hill at his "welcome home" party and a 1920 march on Olive Street by the League of Women Voters. These massive photographs are joined by props and interactive media displays that give viewers a better understanding of the historical context of each scene. More than 60 panoramas of various sizes round out the exhibit, which will be on display from September 2 to March 24, 2019, at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; www.mohistory.org). free admission

Alabama Story

Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 27

What is it about books that makes some people so afraid? Senator E.W. Higgins is up in arms about Garth Williams' new book The Rabbits' Wedding, a children's story about two rabbits who marry. Higgins' main objection is that one of the rabbits is white and the other is black, and in Alabama in 1959, even the hint of miscegenation — and in a children's book, no less — is cause for alarm. Higgins demands it be removed from all Alabama libraries. One librarian, Emily Wheelock Reed, refuses to pull it. Books, and the ideas with their pages, are worth fighting for, Reed argues. Kenneth Jones' play Alabama Story is based on a true story. Williams, the illustrator of Stuart Little and the Little House on the Prairie books, had no idea his picture book about a rabbit wedding would spark a political fight that threatened the well-being of an entire state. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents Alabama Story to open the second half of its season. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday (January 2 to 27) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $19 to $92. $19-$92

Christine Corday: Relative Points

Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through April 21

Space is deep, to quote Hawkwind, and yet scientists believe all living creatures on Earth contain stellar elements within their genetic makeup. Artist Christine Corday explores this union of humans and the stars in her new exhibition Relative Points, which was commissioned by the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Eleven of Corday's large sculptural forms, which are each made of more than 10,000 pounds of elemental metals and metalloid grit, will be arranged within the museum in a pattern of Corday's choosing. The sculptures, which resemble slightly squashed black marshmallows more than four feet high, are intended to be touched; they're essentially the same base elements as humans, after all. During the course of the exhibit, the shapes will change gradually from repeated contact and the inexorable force of universal gravitational attraction. You'll have your first opportunity to get close and personal with Corday's work at the opening reception, which takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, January 18, at Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (3750 Washington Boulevard; www.camstl.org). Christine Corday: Relative Points remains fixed in space through April 21. free admission

Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now

Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Tuesdays-Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Feb. 3

The 1960s were a period of social upheaval and radical change in America, and no art form captured that churning spirit better than printmaking. Printmakers have always had one foot in the commercial art world and one in the realm of fine art, and that hybrid nature allows them to adapt to new technologies and new thinking more quickly than, say, sculptors. Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now, the exhibition at the Saint Louis Art Museum (1 Fine Arts Drive; www.slam.org), is a treasure trove of startling images. Featuring more than 100 works drawn from the museum's holdings and local private collectors, Graphic Revolution includes landmark prints by the big names (Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup II, Robert Rauschenberg's Signs) and less famous but no less astonishing pieces by modern masters such as Julie Mehretu and Edgar Heap of Birds. The show is open from Sunday, November 11, to February 3. Tickets are $6 to $14, but free to all on Friday. $6-$14, free on Friday
