  • Notes on the Classification of Spectral Lines, the Art of Water Writing, and Other Important Ephemera

    This science-focused show (that so recently delighted Fusebox audiences) is part jigsaw puzzle, part campfire story, part exploration of hidden history, and part ridiculous adventure, presented with all the technical elements exposed on stage, performed by Catastrophe Theory Arts' Stephen Pruitt and Rebecca Whitehurst, galvanizing the stage like an inspired combo of Laurie Anderson, Bill Nye, and Spalding Gray. We recommend it highly. May 24-28. Tue., Thu.-Sat., 8pm, $5-15

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

  • Subject to Control

    Built from scratch by longtime co-creators Kaci Beeler and Curtis Luciani in collaboration with director Rob Yoho, this new show's a darkly comic take on cultish pseudoscience, self-improvement, and life after the end of the world. See it for yourselves: "A pair of individuals striving toward the next level of human consciousness but scraping against the daily reality of hunger, bowel movements, sexual arousal, and grueling repetition." And see our review RIGHT HERE. Through June 4. Thu.-Sat., 8pm, $15
