There are some things that ZACH can do that few, maybe no, other companies in this town can do and do to perfection. Blowing the roof off the previous level of music-fueled spectacle is, especially with this show and in the new Topfer theatre, one of them. Dave Steakley directs an amazing cast bringing the days of a young and contentious America to life, with the award-winning Terrence McNally adaptation of E. L. Doctorow's novel galvanizing the boards of this impressive stage. Oct. 17-Nov. 18. Wed.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $25-70.

Topfer Theatre at Zach, 202 S. Lamar, 512/476-0541
