    * Some Humans Were Harmed In the Making of This Show

    This is a "drag, puppetry, self-help testimonial play" by CB Goodman, inspired by the 1903 execution of Topsy the elephantfuck you, Thomas Edison – and staged with contemporary human characters. And En Route Productions has Bridget Farr, Delanté Keys, Ellie McBride, Elizabeth Mason, Andrew Rodriguez, Katy Taylor, and Roz Mandola portraying those characters, so we reckon it'll be a wild, worthwhile ride. Note: The Mon., Oct. 1, show features a death-penalty panel discussion moderated by Crystal Bird Caviel at 7pm.
    Through Oct. 6. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. Extra show: Mon., Oct. 1, 7pm. $20 (pay what you can, Oct. 1).

    Classical Music

    A Republic of Spaces

    Air hoses, cardboard, cellphone vibrators, egg beaters, and styrofoam are among the tools of the trade for this line upon line percussion premiere of the work they commissioned from Aaron Cassidy. The composer will be around for some music-making, too – with solos by Natacha Diels, Weston Olencki, and Steve Reich.
