The Unrepentant Necrophile 

When: Fri., Feb. 23, 8 p.m. and Sat., Feb. 24, 8 p.m. 2018
Price: $20
Love is a strange force that can make people take desperate actions. In 1979, a young woman abducted the object of her affection and hid out with him for three days. It was a profoundly weird act, because he was dead when she met him and she stole his corpse out from under his own funeral. The outlandish true story of a mortician who really loved her work inspired the Coldharts (Nick Ryan and Katie Hartman) to create a punk-rock opera (with help from collaborator Mark Benzel) titled The Unrepentant Necrophile. It's a gothic musical that deals with sexuality and consent through an exceptionally warped lens. Local theatrical collective YoungLiars hosts the Coldharts for a two-night run of their grisly musical. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (February 23 and 24) at the Centene Center for Arts and Education (3547 Olive Street; Tickets are $20.
