    • It's … it's … HIDEOUTRAGEOUS!

      Acclaimed house troupe Parallelogramophonograph, when they're not touring the whole damned world, rocks the boards at least once a week. There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows here. This Thursday brings you the Threefer and Free Fringe of improv, and you can check out that fancy-ass Big Bash and more on Friday, and cheer for your favorite champions in the hotly contended Theatresports Tournament on Saturdays, right after Maestro RAW and right before the more well-baked Maestro. $5-45

When an exhibition of photorealistic paintings of familiar urban scenes features work by Daniel Blagg and David Leonard. So, this show? It's like we won the goddamn aesthetic lottery, isn't it? Answer: yes. Through April 8
