    Davis Gallery: Earth, Land, Property

    This five-person exhibit features work by Nicholas Baxter, Julie Davis, David Leonard, Garrett Middaugh, and Jason Webb. "This show intends to question our place among nature and how we've chosen to use our land." Right on – an important consideration, even if you're not part of the Dark Mountain movement, even if you don't have three oxgangs of good earth when the haeric star appears. Also, tbh, we're partial to anything painted by that D. Leonard.
    Through Dec. 1

    Immigrants, the Musical: No Place Like Home

    This is a Hamilton-inspired show in which, each week, a new monologist tells of their experience in coming from Mexico, from Russia, from Vietnam, from El Salvador, and more. Then the cast, directed by Lahari Dunn and Asaf Ronen, expands these stories into "fully improvised musicals, giving life to the emotion, the journey, and the laughs and hardships along the way." Note: The Chronicle's Robert Faires recently took in a show, and here's his reaction. Featured this final week: Marcia Sanchez from Mexico.
    Through Dec. 21. Fridays, 8pm. $10-12.

    Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe

    Penfold Theatre and Doctuh Mistuh Productions reprise their version of Jonathan Christenson's "wildly theatrical musical play that combines haunting music, poetic storytelling, and stunning stagecraft to tell the life story of Edgar Allan Poe." Say, did people actually enjoy this thing the last time it was presented? Oh, we daresay.
    Through Nov. 10. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $15-30.

    The Hunchback Variations and An Apology by Doctor John Faustus

    One of our favorite playwrights, because his works are so smart and odd and literary and (often) hilarious, is Mickle Maher. He wrote Capital T’s award-winning hits Song About Himself, The Strangerer, There Is a Happiness That Morning Is, and Spirits to Enforce. Now here's Mark Pickell directing Ken Webster and Robert Fisher in two of the man's shorter plays – we get to see both performances in one fine show, yes – and we're so fucking stoked about this. Especially because we want to know what happens, what the brilliant Maher thinks would happen, when "noted composer Beethoven and noted hunchback Quasimodo embark on creating an impossible sound."
    Through Nov. 17. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-30.

    The Sklar Brothers

    You know these funny twins from all over your TV set, don't you? Curb Your Enthusiasm. It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. The frikkin' History Channel, even, right? Catch 'em this week at Cap City!
    Nov. 7-10. Wed.-Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10pm. $18-23.
