    A War of the Worlds

    In Jarret King's comic and thrilling reimagining of a multimedia classic, Orson Welles and his radio troupe, the Mercury Theatre, are a group of Black artists fighting to hold their place at the CBS radio studio. "In the hope of securing a critical corporate sponsorship, Welles orchestrates a last-ditch ratings stunt that causes national panic and secures their undeniable – if infamous – place in media history." Damn, acclaimed playwright, just how many genres and tropes are you disrupting simultaneously with this ambitious project? Penfold Theatre's world premiere production – directed by Marcus McQuirter and featuring actors Marc Pouhé, Jeffrey Da'Shade Johnson, Kenah Benefield, Yunina Barbour Payne, Dane Parker, Judd Farris, Zac Carr, and Sarah Byington – will answer that question as spectacularly as possible.
    June 2-18. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 5pm. $16 and up.

    ICOSA: I Believe In Things I Cannot See

    An exhibition that features collaborative work from Tammie Rubin and Darcie Book? The answer is yes, and our recommendation is high for this show in which the artists investigate how to turn their collective space into an object – where awareness of body and movement become essential – with large, sculptural forms of paper creating a spatial dichotomy, providing the opportunity to travel between two distinct realms.
    Opening reception: Fri., May 27, 7-10pm

    Theatre

    Texas Burlesque Festival

And SALEM from San Antonio, with more than 30 tassel twirlers and queens and kings of the tease from across Texas and the U.S. The audience is encouraged to hoot, holler, and spur these ecdysiasts on in tantalizing performances that range from classic glove-and-garter peels to crazy comedic takes on pop culture icons. Bonus: Mr. David Lampe, that local pop-culture icon himself, will be this night's ebullient host.
