  • 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

Highly recommended. Through June 7. Fri.-Sat., noon-6pm.
