    Comedy

    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows and classes here. This Thursday brings you a Threefer and a Free Fringe of improv. Friday's got that Grand Slam Comedy Hour with The Knuckleball Now, the all-star action of Big Bash, the TheatreDome raging all shiny and chrome, and the return of Parallelogramophonograph. Then, on Saturday night, after Maestro RAW, that Big Gay Musical returns to explode for a fabulous month's run on the upstairs stage. And, oh, don't miss the competitive improv donnybrook of Maestro! See website for more.

    This Is a Test of the Internal Emergency Broadcast System

    This is also a multimedia art event and a one-woman show. That one woman is Yuliya Lanina, and so all we can tell you is that you'll be missing out like whoa if you don't see what the relentlessly inventive artist is up to this time. Painting, interactive sculpture, animation, and performance – and all of it exploring "the mechanized nature of human life and a state of perpetual unrest." Recommended.
    Closing reception: Fri., June 29, 7-9pm. Free.

    Theatre

    Lucky Stiff

    Here's that musical comedy by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, in which an unassuming English shoe salesman inherits $6 million from an American uncle. But there's a catch: He has to take a vacation to Monte Carlo with his uncle’s embalmed body and convince folks that the man’s still alive. Michael McKelvey directs, and the cast is scary good.
    Through June 24. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $17-40.
