Coming Out Play Festival

The Monocle 4510 Manchester Ave, St. Louis St. Louis - The Grove

,
The Q Collective's Coming Out Play Festival invites playwrights to explore the myriad ways the LGBTQ community reveals their true selves to friends, family and strangers. This year's plays include the story of a closeted young man on the fence about telling his grandmother the truth about himself ("Catching Lemons"); a woman coming out to her woman's group ("1Like Summer on the Beach"); and a fictional girlfriend becoming a real person ("The Home for Retired Canadian Girlfriends"). The Coming Out Play Festival takes place at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 4 and 7 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday (October 17 to 20) at the Monocle (4510 Manchester Avenue; theqcollective.theater). Tickets are $20 to $75. 314-932-7003

Garden Party Lights

Thursdays-Sundays, 6 p.m. Continues through Oct. 19


If you don't live in an air-conditioned place, the Missouri Botanical Garden (4434 Shaw Boulevard; www.mobot.org) is one of the coolest places to be when the summer sun goes down, thanks to its multitudes of flora. Fortunately, the garden will be open late once again on select nights during Garden Party Lights, a massive installation of multimedia light projections designed by AVI Systems and Theatrical Concepts. Doors open at 6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday (July 6 to October 19), with the light show starting once it's dark. There will be food and beverage sales at both the covered Biergarten and the Cohen Cantina. Tickets are $10 to $20, and Thursdays and Sundays are family nights, with $3 tickets for kids younger than twelve. 314-577-9400

Soft Scrub

Fridays, Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Wednesdays, Thursdays, 12-5 p.m. Continues through Oct. 26
The Luminary 2701 Cherokee St, St. Louis St. Louis - South City


The everyday black household is foreign territory to most of America. There have been a few TV shows (The Jeffersons at the richer end of the spectrum, Good Times at the more financially tenuous) that depicted fictionalized domestic situations, but even those can be considered non-standard families. They certainly weren't entirely relatable to Katherine Simóne Reynolds' own upbringing. Inspired by this dearth of representation, Reynolds asked black male artists to address the idea of black home life from a male perspective. The exhibition Soft Scrub challenges stereotypes and reveals lessons learned about cleanliness, division of labor and social expectations. Soft Scrub opens with a free reception from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, September 13, at the Luminary (2701 Cherokee Street; www.theluminaryarts.com). Participating artists include Vaughn Davis Jr., Mitchell Squire, Cameron Granger and Keyon Gaskin. The exhibit remains up through October 26. 314-773-1533

The Who's Tommy

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Oct. 26
Tower Grove Abbey 2336 Tennessee Ave., St. Louis St. Louis - South Grand


Eight years ago, Stray Dog Theatre unleashed its glorious production of The Who's Tommy. It was a knock out. Associate artistic director Justin Been took the lead on staging the production, revealing his prodigious talents for arranging actors in ever-shifting tableaux. The result was a beautifully kinetic production that made pinball an exuberant celebration of life. At long last, Stray Dog will once again present Tommy in all his deaf, dumb and blind glory, with Been overseeing the production. The show is performed with a live band, as it should be, at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (October 10 to 26) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). Tickets are $25 to $30. 314-865-1995
