    • Invisible Inc

      The Hidden Room, that cabal of professional theatremakers who recently brought us the amazing Rose Rage, now command a Long Center stage to present the new Paul Menzer drama about two feuding stage magicians in Depression-era New York City. Menzer's previous Austin triumph was via The Bedlam Faction's delightful Brats of Clarence – another indication that this Beth Burns-directed spectacle of contention and vintage hocus-pocus will be a well-wrought crowd-pleaser. Starring Robert Matney, Liz Fisher, Joseph Garlock, Todd Kassens, Julia Lorenz-Olson, and Laurence Pears. Nothing up our sleeve here but recommendation. Jan. 11-20. Mon.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. Note: No show on Jan. 15. $18.50 and up
