Ever since its New York opening in 1977, D.L. Colburn's "The Gin Game" has attracted extraordinary actors. Now at Drury Lane, that means John Reeger and Paula Scrofano, two longtime stars of the Midwestern musical theater. They play residents of a down-at-heel retirement community, both feisty and witty people, who discover each other on the terrace. Director Ross Lehman's "Gin Game" ranges a little darker than most productions I've seen. You leave with the sense that none of this is really a game. Through Aug. 13 at the Drury Lane Theatre, 100 Drury Lane, Oakbrook Terrace; $42-$57 at 630-530-0111 or drurylanetheatre.com
