  • Church of the Passionate Cat

    What do you get when you cross film noir with metaphysics, and nightclub partying with a revival meeting, and you co-produce the entire crypto-detective, mirror-ball-in-the-shadows thing with Austin's Rude Mechs? You get the second stagework from Underbelly, whose first production Slip River so thoroughly wowed audiences, and you get a buzz of anticipation throughout the naked city for this max work of theirs. Bonus: Hannah Kenah stars as the caper's boozy shamus. May 8-18. Thu.-Fri. & Sun., 8pm; Sat., 8 & 10pm. Thu., May 8 - Sun., May 18, (2014), $15 ($10, students)

    The Off Center, 2211-A Hidalgo, 512/476-7833

  • Big Medium: Pillow Book as Inheritance

    Terri Thomas – whose shows are always a welcome spectacle of technical brilliance, stunning graphics, and arch humor – explores notions of birthright through her variation of a Japanese Shunga Pillow Book: a folded-paper manual on the ways of intimacy, with explicitly illustrated sexual advice. Highly recommended. Through June 7. Fri.-Sat., noon-6pm.

  • It's … Institutional!

    This month the Southside epicenter of comedy goodness – overseen by those raconteurs Ronen & Booker – brings you Heckle Her's Doper Than Dope show, directed by Adrienne Dawes, wherein the Nineties' In Living Color vibe returns better than ever. And, later on Fridays, Indigo Rael and Todd Mein host Church of the Century Kid, a time-travel odyssey through the true histories and imagined futures of 100 years. And then there's that Tightrope and Tarantula and much more, of course. See website for details.
