The Phantom of the Opera

Sundays, 1 & 6:30 p.m. Continues through May 20

Andrew Lloyd Webster's colossal hit The Phantom of the Opera remains immensely popular for a show about a mercurial stalker. The titular Phantom haunts both an opera house and young chorus girl Christine. He mysteriously arranges for his obsession to become the star of a new opera written by you-know-who, but then lashes out at Christine when she falls in love with a kind man from her past rather than the masked man who murders her castmates. Full of special effects and Webster's eternal songs, Phantom still has the power to make audiences appear in their seats in an instant. The musical is performed Tuesday through Sunday (May 9 to 20) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $39 to $200. $39-$200

Life Sucks

Starts May 23. Wednesdays, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., Sundays, 2 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through June 10

The New Jewish Theatre closes its season with Aaron Posner's Life Sucks, which is adapted from Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. In Chekhov's original play, an extended family and their close friends stew over regrets and long for change while all occupying the same country house. Posner reassembles the pieces in a modern setting. He leaves the yearning and ennui intact as he guilds the characters with wryness and a tender playfulness. After all, the nineteenth-century Russian countryside may be a world (and a century and a half) away from modern America, but trying to make sense of life remains a time-honored occupation. Life Sucks is performed at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (May 23 to June 10) in the Wool Studio Theatre at the Jewish Community Center (2 Millstone Campus Drive, Creve Coeur; www.newjewishtheatre.org). Tickets are $41 to $44. $41-$44

An irreverent adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, Posner’s contemporary riff on the work is altogether wise, profoundly humane, hilarious, quirky, endearing and, in countless clever ways, brilliantly faithful to its source. Posner brings a playful, far from cynical, originality to the story of a group of yearning, frustrated, heartbroken, questioning, and in many ways privileged souls who are, in their varied and deeply flawed ways, trying to cope with all the essential conundrums of existence. It is essentially a play about love, loss and longing – with a healthy dose of Jewish philosophizing thrown in. Never has unhappiness been 41-44

Black Mirror Theatre Presents A Tragedy Two Ways. It's the story of Ireland’s Magdalen Laundries told from two different perspectives played in two very different dramatic styles. Magdalen Laundries were homes for ‘penitent’ or ‘fallen’ girls, often run by Catholic nuns, in which, over the years, as many as 30,000 Irish women and girls were held in forced labor for indefinite terms. The last such home closed in Ireland in 1996, but the impact on the inmates’ lives is still being revealed. $20 General Admission | $15 Student/Senior | $25 Two Performance Combo

Featuring some of Garland’s most memorable songs, this savagely funny play-with-music offers unique insight into the inner conflict that inspired and consumed one of the most beloved figures of our time. “End of the Rainbow” was nominated for 3 Tony Awards and 4 Olivier Awards including Best New Play. $35-$300
