Current Profile

Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through March 17

Once reserved for the wealthy and the social elite, portraiture has been democratized down to the informal level of the selfie. Freed from its staid origins, the modern portrait can be heroic representation, transgressive, humorous or an act of wish fulfillment. Current Profile, the new exhibition at the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.craftalliance.org), explores contemporary portraiture in all media. The show features everything from Richard Wehrs' sculpted bust of an alien warrior to Cayce Zavaglia's embroidered image of a young woman in pigtails, and all points in between. Current Profile opens with a free reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 11. The exhibition remains up through March 17. free admission

Milk Like Sugar

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

Annie Desmond is turning sixteen, and she and her friends plan to celebrate in a big way — tattoos may be involved. They're like many black teenagers, dreaming big but surrounded by little that offers hope of something better. Annie's mother works herself near to death to support them, but when Annie's friend Margie tells the group she's pregnant, they hatch a plan that's shortsighted at best. Kirsten Greenidge's play Milk Like Sugar has been praised for the poetry and honesty of its dialogue and its unflinching look at the future being created for black youth. The Black Rep presents Milk Like Sugar at 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at Washington University's Hotchner Studio Theatre inside the Edison Center (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.theblackrep.org). Tickets are $15 to $40. $15-$40

Classic Mystery Game

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 16

The fun part of any mystery is in the solving of it. Putting all the pieces together so that the big picture emerges and the unknowns become known satisfies our human curiosity. Katy Keating and Michael Cassidy Flynn's new play Classic Mystery Game is a parody of the 1985 film Clue, which was itself inspired by the board game of the same name. The basic elements of the film (and the game) are intact. A group of stock characters — a military man, a dowager, an ingenue — are gathered in an old house while an investigator attempts to solve a murder committed by one of them. Classic Mystery Game opens Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble's thirteenth season. Performances are at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (January 30 to February 16) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

tickets@placeseveryone.org

This “weird and wonderful” (New York Times) retelling of the Greek myth about the musician Orpheus and his wife Eurydice ruminates on love, loss, and the power of memory. “Eurydice” is one of the few retellings of the classic myth told from the heroine's perspective. It considers her untimely death and descent to the Underworld, what she finds there, and her difficult decision of whether or not to return to Earth with Orpheus. “Eurydice” was nominated for Drama League and Drama Desk awards in 2008. $15-25
