Brimming with poetic language and emotional longing, Tennessee Williams' memory play The Glass Menagerie is rightly considered a true classic, a work that's lost none of its power over the generations. Set in a Depression-era St. Louis tenement, aspiring poet Tom Wingfield struggles with a mind-numbing job and a smothering home life. His overbearing mother, a former Southern belle, constantly pushes her son to bring home "gentleman callers" for his painfully shy sister Laura, whose collection of glass animals means everything to her. But when Tom finally does produces a male visitor, the guest's presence sends shock waves through the family -- and the fragile fantasy world they've built may be irreparably shattered. This production by Theatre Coup d'Etat comes to the stage at Saint Paul's Space.
Nastier than Scorsese at his bleakest, more violent than Tarantino at his bloodiest, Macbeth still shocks like no other tale on the page, stage or screen.

Now The Chameleon Theatre Circle stages this chilling portrait of temptation, ambition and betrayal to close out its 18th season. Driven by a supernatural prophesy, his own ambition and an adamant partner, the Scottish general slashes his way to the throne. But just as he grasps the crown, it starts to slip through his bloody fingers. David Coral directs at the Ames Center's Black Box Theatre.

While opposites don't always attract, they can make excellent comedy, at least in the case of The Odd Couple, the Neil Simon play The New York Times declared, "the most famous American comedy of the last 50 years."

The two men get into increasingly heated squabbles over the state of Oscar's apartment, and a hilarious double date with the attractive Pigeon sisters comes to an unexpected and comedic conclusion.
