    Theatre

    Henry IV

    Shakespeare? Of course. But this kingly classic is directed by Beth Burns for the Hidden Room, is based on a new adaptation by Dr. Ralph Alan Cohen, and features a cast worth shouting about infused with a rowdy glam-rock aesthetic. Which means that this ain't your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather's Henry IV, this is your chance to see the Bard's work presented with incomparable theatrical power and style. Bonus: live music from Shoulders' Todd Kassens.
    Through Oct. 1. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $15-30.  
    York Rite Masonic Hall, 311 W. Seventh.

    Theatre

    Latino Comedy Project: Barrio Daze

    The LCP's recent run of Gentrifucked was as timely, relevant, and provocative as the troupe's productions have always been – and pretty damn funny, too. And this Barrio Daze is just as laced with dark humor, but even more concentrated and powerful – partly because it's performed by just one man: LCP head honcho Adrian Villegas, whose array of characters and the level of craft with which he portrays them could leave you breathless. Barrio Daze, a kaleidoscopic glimpse into diverse aspects of Mexican-American identity, is something of a reprise of its own earlier incarnation – but newly revamped to reflect a variety of *fnord* current events. We recommend it highly. And if you hold (or you're thinking of running for) public office anywhere in Tejas, we reckon it should be required viewing.
    Through Sept. 16. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $13 ($11, in advance).

    Title and Deed

    Capital T Theatre's Mark Pickell directs that talented Jason Phelps in this one-man show scripted by Will "Thom Pain" Eno, offering an insight-stuffed look at what it means to be alive in this odd century and what the concept of home can embody. Recommended.
