A sizable chunk of St. Louis’ robust theater scene will be stationed in Grand Center (North Grand and Lindell boulevards) this weekend for the Grand Center Theater Crawl
. This pop-up theater experience presents short shows ranging from the classics to freestyle operas at venues both traditional (the Kranzberg Arts Center) and unusual (Miss M’s Candy Boutique). Participating companies include St. Louis Shakespeare, Gateway Opera and Midnight Company (which will be performing a new play, "Patient #47," about a dying man and his caregiver). Sessions start at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 or 7 p.m. Saturday (June 28 and 29), and not all plays are presented at each session. Visit www.stlpublicradio.org
for the full schedule and synopses of each show.
