A Bright New Boise

From the Obie-winning playwright who penned The Whale … from the most award-winning director in Austin theatre history … from your professional friends at Hyde Park Theatre … comes this new, savagely funny Samuel D. Hunter work that takes place in the break room of a Hobby Lobby in Boise, Idaho, where a man reconnects with the teenage son he hasn't seen since the boy was an infant. Recommended, and then some. Through Oct. 25. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-22 (pay-what-you-can, Thursdays).

Fool For Love

And then there are some shows you know you're going to see no matter what. Listen: Mark Pickell of Capital T Theatre is directing Sam Shepard's wracked romantic classic? Yes. And who's playing the two contentious lovers? Joey Hood and Molly Karrasch. Holy fuck, this is gonna be a milestone of performance. Do we even have to say "recommended"? Thu.-Sat., Oct. 30-Nov. 22, 8pm. $15-30.
