      Blue Genie Art Bazaar: New May Market

      The creators of the Blue Genie Art Bazaar present a new spring arts event called May Market, a free, family-friendly experience showcasing the work of regional artisans and craftspeople under one roof with centralized checkout. "This is the ideal place to shop for locally made, one-of-a-kind gifts for Father’s Day, graduations, anniversaries, weddings, and more." That's what the press release says, anyway, trying to entice us in; thing is, that's even a bit too humble: We know what sort of market the Blue Genie gathers, and it's sure to be a lively splendorama of well-made goods coveted by anyone with a taste for the original, off-beat, and brilliantly homegrown.
      Through May 31. Fri.-Sun., 10am-8pm

      Hold Me Well

      Shrewd Productions presents this virtual world premiere of Eva Suter’s sci-fi re-envisioning of Shakespeare's Othello, depicting "a desolate, Central Texas inhabited solely by women after a catastrophic war has eradicated the male population. With the threat of another war and a new romance quickly unfolding before them, five women bound by the tragedy must entrust their lives to one another in order to save themselves and humanity." (Well, damn – count us in on that action, tyvm.) Directed by Rudy Ramirez, starring Ellie McBride, Hayley Armstrong, Elizabeth Mason, Emily Rankin, and Taylor Flanagan.

      Through April 30. $8.

      Lights Out for Wildlife

      Several major migratory flyways pass through Texas. Every spring and fall, millions of birds pass through the state. Many birds fly at night, but can become disoriented by bright lights. Texans can help solve this problem by turning off non-essential lights late at night during the peak of migratory season.

      Northern-Southern: Baton

      This is a group show by relay, begun in July of 2020 as a method of socially distancing a community in the height of the pandemic: Artists took turns alone in the space, each adding to the exhibition. Now, as it nears its close, the exhibition resembles a community in which work converses and overlaps. With Adreon Henry, Vy Ngo, Dawn Okoro, Leon Alesi, Matt Steinke, Sev Coursen, Stella Alesi, and more.
      Closing reception: Sat., July 24, 3-9pm

      The Tempest

      As those pesky 'ronas become increasingly easier to deal with, due to vaccines and masking and social distancing, The Baron's Men stage a bold return, bringing Shakespeare's phantasmagoric brilliance to the Curtain Theatre for three weekends of betrayal, love, and forgiveness. On an island. With a sorcerer. And – oh, you know, right? Now come see it, live, in full swagger and quake.
