Critics' Picks

An Ideal Husband, Circle Theatre, through Aug. 5. Oscar Wilde's signature wit elevates stock melodrama in this mostly well-acted and sumptuously ( and cleverly ) designed show. With attention to detail, even the wordless eye-candy butlers add something. JA

Jerry Springer—The Opera, Bailiwick, through Aug. 19. You ain't gonna see this one at Marriott! Even if you never watch the TV show, don't miss this outrageous pop-oratorio—eat your heart out, Sir Andrew—at the first theater in America with nerve to stage it. MSB

Lookingglass Alice, Lookingglass Theatre, through Aug. 12. Lewis Carroll's classic is droll, effervescent and joyously physical as the Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts, Tweedles Dum and Dee and all Wonderland denizens leap from page to stage with verve and gusto. CS

15th Jazz Dance World Festival, Harris Theater for Music and Dance, through Aug. 4. If ballet is too formal and modern dance too esoteric for you, try the artsy razzle-dazzle of international jazz dance troupes in this celebrated festival. SCM
