  • Only at the Alamo: Final Cut: Ladies and Gentlemen

    • The Cruel Circus: A Trouble Puppet Show

      Here's the newest work of dark whimsy, written and directed by Connor Hopkins, from the company that brought us The Jungle, Frankenstein, Riddley Walker, and Toil & Trouble. The professional Trouble Puppet team creates Bunraku-style tabletop puppets to embody this compelling and eerie drama for adults, with original music by Justin Sherburn, costumes by Monica Gibson, and, well, wow. Bonus: Pre-show performance by Cami Alys. Also: Look at the poster for this thing. Brilliant. Why? Because Jennymarie Jemison. Through May 25. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $10-20
