  • Once There Were Six Seasons

    Here's the world premiere of what we were lucky enough to get a taste of as a workshop production a while back: A truly magnificent work of theatre. Watch, amazed, as Caroline Reck and Glass Half Full present this … ah … well, imagine a complex series of living dioramas about environmental changes that occur over thousands and thousands of years – and now see those dioramas morph from one to the next, live, as you watch. It's no wonder The Henson Foundation is backing this astonishing accomplishment in puppetry and scenic manipulation, and you know we're giving it our highest recommendation. Through June 7. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $12-20

    Salvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd., 512/474-7886
