Love Love Loving Love

Recent big-screen romantic comedies have flopped (here's looking at you, Matthew McConaughey), but that doesn't mean there's no audience for romance — the genre just needs to be properly presented. Act Inc. has something of the sticky-sweet variety for your delectation in The Romantic Age, a sweet little love story written by A.A. Milne. Melisande is ready for marriage, and her parents have a solid (read: boring) suitor picked out for her, but she wants to wait for Prince Charming. And then Gervase shows up on the family's doorstep, wearing his best Prince Charming outfit. Too bad he's not looking for love — what's it going to take to convince him otherwise? Act Inc. shows you the love at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (June 12 through 15, and June 28 and 29) at the Fontbonne University's Fine Arts Theatre (6800 Wydown Boulevard; 314-725-9108 or www.actinc.biz). Tickets are $18 to $20.
June 12-15; June 28-29, 2008
