ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- There's a lot of "new" to the news when it comes to art and entertainment developments in St. Louis. First, starting in October, New Line Theatre's mainstage shows will all be performed at the new Marcelle Theater in Grand Center.  Other groups will also perform at the Marcelle, which will have about 150 seats.  The Marcelle is a project of the Kranzberg Arts Foundation, established and headed by philanthropists Ken and Nancy Kranzberg.

Fans of the comic strip “Pearls Before Swine” have something to  get excited about.  Cartoonist Stephan Pastis will be in town to sign and discuss the new collection, "Pearls Gets Sacrificed: A Pearls Before Swine Treasury.” He’ll be at the Central Library in downtown St. Louis on Tuesday, September 29, 2015, at 7:00pm.

And finally, something new from the Muny. A concert featuring one of the biggest stars of recent summers will be held in November. To find out who is coming back to town, pickup Sunday's A&E section of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
