TIE: Esther's Follies, Mr. Sinus Theater

Austin loves her spoofsters. Esther's Follies, with its ripped-from-the-headlines take on Texas life and politics keeps the crowds comin' after 25 years. Relative newcomers, Mr. Sinus Theater, a local live spoof of the spoof Mystery Science Theater 3000 television show, takes cult films and recent releases alike and skewers them from the comfy vantage point of their seats in the front row of the Alamo Drafthouse.
