The Mystery of Irma Vep Staff Pick

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through March 8 2020
Price: $20-$94.50
Irma Vep is the new bride of Lord Edgar Hillcrest, who may not be entirely over the mysterious death of his first wife, Lady Enid. Irma attempts to settle in to the stately Mandacrest estate, but both the housekeeper, Jane, and the houseboy, Nicodemus, mourn their former mistress too much for Irma to be comfortable. By the time the werewolves are howling on the moor and the portrait of Lady Enid is spewing fog, even Lord Edgar feels he has to investigate. So off he pops to Egypt to resume his work in ancient tombs, and then things at home really go pear-shaped. Charles Ludlam's Victorian-horror-comedy spoof The Mystery of Irma Vep creates supernatural amounts of laughter from nothing more than two actors and a sharp eye for the cliches and coincidences of B-movies. The Repertory Theatre St. Louis presents The Mystery of Irma Vep Tuesday through Sunday (February 14 to March 8) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; Tickets are $20 to $94.50.
