If Opera Theatre of Saint Louis's "Sweeny Todd" isn't everything I could wish, it is (to quote an old joke) way ahead of whatever's in second place.

The plot of Othello is simple enough. An army general, Othello, a Moor, marries above his social station and outside his race. Also, he has chosen a young lieutenant, Michael Cassio, as his second-in-command.

The fine people at the Black Rep bring us another quirky, intelligent, original offering in "Insidious".
