Simple Sundries

Glass Half Full Theatre's Caroline Reck has written (and directs) this new play – a blend of visual theater, puppetry, and physical comedy, about Austin’s current economic explosion and real-estate bonanza – featuring a solo performance by Gricelda Silva with puppets by Parker Dority. (Note: On one night only – Saturday, March 7 – Reck will perform the show, adapting the storyline to accommodate her 8.5-month-pregnant frame.) Feb. 27-March 14. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $12-20 (pay what you can, Sundays).

No Shame Theatre

Gnap! Theater Projects' legendary open-mic performance gig – for which that Kerri Lendo is at least partially to blame – provides a venue for things you probably wouldn't see anywhere else. Funny, bad, good, weird, dance-based, or just what-the-hell, all styles of performance are welcomed and it's hella entertaining. Fri., March 6, 10pm. Free.

Reception: Sun., March 8, 4-6pm. Exhibition: through March 28.
