    Formula 1 w/ Taylor Swift

    Once the burgeoning country artist of Fearless (2008) and Speak Now (2010) with the dulcet “Love Story” and “Mine,” Swift transformed into a power-pop machine churner two years ago via 1989’s dancefloor synth “Style” and sepia-toned electro-pop (“Blank Space”). – Alejandra Ramirez

    • Houdini Speaks to the Living

      The Hidden Room's redoubtable Beth Burns has teamed up with NYC-based magician Patrick Terry to create this drama surrounding the initially friendly but ultimately contentious relationship between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and The Escape Artist Formerly Known as Erik Weisz. (Note: Don't be a sap; that's Houdini.) The show's based on actual conversations and correspondences of the two, as gleaned from the rich archives of the Harry Ransom Center, with that Terry playing history's premiere escapologist and Austin's own Robert Matney as Sir Arthur. Magicians rejoice! Spiritualists beware! Rosabel believe! Through Oct. 30. Wed.-Sun., 8pm, $15-25

    • L'Enfant Terrible

      Denise Prince is, let's not mince words, a total fucking genius. Her photography alone would corroborate that assertion; but, no, she's so often compelled to present it in some unforgettable made environment, some manner of form and/or function that galvanizes meaning and provokes response. And this is her newest masterwork, a multimedia dreamscape with original art and film, a shifting tableau of intentional aesthetics, enhanced with hors d'oeuvres and drinks, a paper-doll photo booth, a kissing booth, interactive installations, arcane performances, absinthe lollipops, and more, in the intimate environs of Justine's Secret House. Sat., Oct. 22, 8-11pm, $75

      Justine's Secret House, 1303 E. Seventh
