Messages from Mercury

Through Aug. 31

Strongly influenced by the ideas of semiotics and sacred geometry, artist Benjamin Lowder creates works of deconstructed text that convey ideas about the hidden world that exists all around us. For his new show, Messages from Mercury, Lowder paints street signs, then breaks them apart and reassembles them so the familiar words become glyphs that bear a cautionary tale to our inner voices. Just as Mercury was the messenger from the gods in Roman theology, so Lowder's art carries a warning from the gods that we're on the wrong path. Benjamin Lowder: Messages from Mercury opens with a reception from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 29, at the artist’s brand-new Cherokee Street Gallery (2617 Cherokee Street; www.cherokeestreetgallery.com). It remains up through the end of August. Also on display are new works by Jerald Ieans and Zack Smithey in conversation with one another. Admission is free. free admission

Faust: go down with all the re$t

Through Aug. 18, 7:30 p.m.

A coalition of five St. Louis theater companies join forces to present a celebration of the Faust legend this summer and autumn. The Faustival opens with ERA's experimental rock-opera Faust: go down with all the re$t, which is inspired by Goethe's rendition of the story. Faust is God's favorite human, but the Devil bets that he can draw him into sin. And so the Devil appears to Faust as a poodle and corrupts him with the promise of absolute power. ERA, with the help of local band Kid Scientist, presents its "capitalist tragedy" Faust: go down with all the re$t at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Friday and Saturday (August 8, 10 and 11), and then again at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (August 15 to 18) at Foam (3359 South Jefferson Avenue; www.eratheatre.org). Tickets are $10 and a two-drink minimum is recommended to get in the proper mindset. $10

King Charles III

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m., Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thu., Aug. 23, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Aug. 26

The current prince of Wales is heir to the throne of England, still, at age 69. If he ever does become king, what sort of monarch would he be? Playwright Mike Bartlett imagines Charles' reign in his controversial play King Charles III. Told in Shakespearean blank verse, the play imagines a Charles who isn't afraid to take a more active leadership role than his mother — or really any modern English monarch. Faced with giving his assent to a law he doesn't approve of, Charles refuses to give his permission, which just isn't done. Suddenly the figurehead king is an active participant in the governing of England, and the people are outraged. Charles has his own problems as well — the ghost of his first wife haunts him in private moments. St. Louis Shakespeare opens its new season with the tendentious King Charles III. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (August 17 to 26) at the Ivory Theatre (7620 Michigan Avenue; www.stlshakespeare.org). There is an additional performance at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, August 23. Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

Mark Dew:

Wednesdays, Fridays-Sundays, 8 p.m.

To walk into the Hideaway is to enter a place that seems frozen in time, where the dozen or so seats around the piano are packed with your grandparents' friends, decked out in chunky jewelry and tilted fedora hats. Ostensibly, they're here to listen to Mark Dew play — he's here Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights — but you're just as likely to hear one of those old-timers sitting around the piano trill Charlie Rich's "The Most Beautiful Girl." And when Dew finally has his turn at the mic, he'll say something humble, like, "I apologize; it should have been in the key of F." No matter. Dew is the conductor of this time-traveling train, and everyone's on board. Dew, who is blind, has been the piano man here for nearly a quarter-century and jokes that the best part about working here is, well, getting paid. He marvels at the younger set trickling in and its knowledge of the Cash and Sinatra songbooks: "The more the crowd gets into it, the more I play," Dew says. And that's enough to keep him around. "I'm not quite ready to be out to pasture," he says. "Yet." free

ORDER: BLVCK SPVDE >> HUHT (Set 1) >> HUHT (Set 2) BLVCK SPVDE:: Emcee, Producer, Singer/Songwriter, Designer, Visionary. HUHT:: "Far from the confines of a jam band, Huht leans on the hypnotic repetition of kraut rock while injecting prog-elements with the relative whimsy of a weathered jazz outfit. Songs here are less structured than most, yet avoid the risky venture of full-on improv. With a DNA makeup that includes members from 18andCounting & TheOnlyEnsemble and resident King Crimson tribute Thrak, Huht reaches across the aisle with a strong tendency to shred." - Joe Hess RIVERFRONT TIMES $5
