St. Nicholas and The Good Thief


If you're in the market for a different sort of theatrical experience, check out the Midnight Company's short (but solid) repertory season at Herbie's Vintage 72 (405 North Euclid Avenue; 314-487-5305 or Joe Hanrahan remounts two one-man shows by Irish playwright Conor McPherson, St. Nicholas and The Good Thief. The former is about a burned-out Dublin theater critic who trails an enchanting young actress to London. His interest is more personal than professional, and he somehow finds himself tangled up with a vampire gang that uses him as bait to bring in more humans. The Good Thief is about a hard-nosed Irish thug who's been betrayed by his boss and is now on the run from both the crooks and the cops. St. Nicholas is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 6:30 p.m. Sunday (July 10, 12, 18, 24, 26). Show times for The Good Thief are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 6:30 p.m. Sunday (July 11, 17, 19, 25). Tickets are $15.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 6:30 p.m. Starts: July 10. Continues through July 26, 2015
