    • Dr. Brian Greene: The Hidden Reality

      We're putting this in "theatre" because 1) we don't have a science department, and 2) this is some kinda show the good doctor puts on, alright, with video enhancements abetting his evocative descriptions of string theory and parallel universes and so on – all those amazing things you've likely heard this renowned author and theoretical physicist championing on award-winning TV programs. Thu., Jan. 17, 8pm (2013), $30-40

      Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress, 512/472-5470

    • Fronterafest 2013: Best of the Fest!

      Fronterafest's all over for another year, people, except for this Short Fringe: Best of the Fest part –and I'm glad to tell you that any night of this line-up is worth seeing, because you'll laugh, you might cry, you will be extremely fucking entertained at all times. [Full disclosure: I helped decide which shows got to be presented again this week.] And "Austin's Best Monologist" – it's true!Steven Tomlinson debuts his new "How to Use Evernote" piece in the Wild Card Bill. You'd best hurry, though, because these nights (and one matinee) of no-fail theatrical enjoyment are selling out so fast you'd think they were Tim Doyle prints or something! See website for full schedule details. Wed.-Sat., Feb. 14-16, 8pm.

      Hyde Park Theatre, 511 W. 43rd, 512/479-7529

    • 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

      Long Center for the Performing Arts, 701 W. Riverside, 474-5664
