    Elisabet Ney Museum: A Permanent Record

    Heidi Pitre's ink drawings on vintage library cards merge art and literature, nostalgia and history, and recycling and reusing. They're good, we say; they're neat, we attest; they're art at the Ney in the midst of the WEST.

    To close this 19th year of making dances for her company, Kathy Dunn Hamrick has revisited pivotal moments from previous works, placed them within new contexts, given them new meaning, and created a whimsical hour-long show that stands alone as an entirely new dance. So now here comes everything KDHDC, in a stunning reinvention of original music scores, graphic art, video, and costumes.
    May 30-June 2. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 4pm. $19-21.

    This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
    May 28-June 16. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $79-539.
