Seminar

When: Sundays, 3 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Oct. 4 2015

If you wish to become a writer, Leonard is the man you contact. He's the editor/tyrant who can hone your prose to a razor-sharp point, or carve you up one side and down the other for your failings. Four adult students have just paid Leonard $10,000 each for the privilege of a ten-week writing class in an Upper West Side apartment. Over the course of those ten weeks, they will bicker, spar and flirt while Leonard denounces their talents, their intentions and their chances of becoming successful writers. St. Louis Actors' Studio opens its ninth season with Theresa Rebeck's comedy Seminar. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (September 18 through October 4) at the Gaslight Theater (358 North Boyle Avenue; 314-458-2978 or www.stlas.org). Tickets are $30 to $35.
