“887” is Robert Lepage’s one-man show that takes the audience on a journey into the realm of his childhood memory. He plunges into the depths of his memory and questions the relevance of certain recollections, such as “Why do we remember the phone number from our youth, yet forget our current one?” and “How does a childhood song withstand the test of time, permanently ingrained in our minds, while the name of a loved one escapes us?”

Several works from Lepage have been staged in Korea, but “887” will be the first work of his that he directs and performs in. In the show, Lepage speaks French and English. Korean subtitles will be provided.

The show starts at 8 p.m. on weekdays; at 5 p.m. on Saturday; and at 3 p.m. on Sunday.

ALL NEW MUSICAL GREASE

D-Cube Arts Center

Through Aug. 11


The popular rock ’n’ roll musical “Grease” has been reproduced to reflect modern times with rearranged numbers and newly designed stages and props by Korea’s OD Company.

This new show is still heavily based on the 1971 musical by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey that highlights the ’50s U.S. working-class youth subculture known as “greasers.” The characters are still the same, as is the story line, according to Shin Chun-soo, the producer of the OD Company, adding that the musical had to be retouched and upgraded so it could also speak to younger audiences who don’t understand U.S. culture of the ’50s and ’60s. The show begins at 8 p.m. on weekdays; at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturdays; at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Sundays and public holidays. There are no shows on Mondays.

Tickets range from 60,000 won to 140,000 won.
