Anton in Show Business Staff Pick

When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through April 8 2017
Price: $8-$10
Jane Martin's Anton in Show Business is both a wry deconstruction of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters and a razor-sharp exposé on how regional theater actually gets made. Three actresses win parts in a San Antonio production of the classic drama. One is a budding TV starlet who wants to do serious theater to prove she's a real actress. One is an off-off-Broadway specialist who has hundreds of stage credits to her name but rarely earns a paycheck for her work. The final player is a local actor excited to perform with such vaunted professionals. The director is a serious artiste, the producer is over-educated, and with the money running out there may be no way to actually mount the show. These are the perils of American theater in the digital age, and probably every age that follows. Lindenwood University Theater presents Anton in Show Business at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (March 30 to April 8) at Lindenwood University's Scheidegger Center for the Arts (2300 West Clay Street; Tickets are $8 to $10.
