Can all your questions about self-help be answered by a combination 1960s dance party and Nietzschean philosophy? YoungLiars presents Whammy! The Seven Secrets to a Sane Self
. The St. Louis theater company invites you to a show exploring the tragedy and triumph of personal growth in today's age. In the company's own words, Whammy!
"probes the American fever dream where Dr. Phil, Diazepam and daily affirmations crash headlong in self-medication, suicide and The Shirelles." Originally created in 2010, the show was most recently presented at the NYC Fringe Festival in 2013. Whammy!
is performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (September 26 to October 5) at the Centene Center for the Arts (3547 Olive Street; www.facebook.com/youngliarstheatre
). Tickets are $20.
