    Hedwig and the Angry Inch

    Director Dave Steakley and choreographer Abe Reybold bring John Cameron Mitchell’s glamorous and rockin’ musical classic about ”a fourth-wall-smashing East German rock & roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched sex-change operation, trying to find a place to belong in America” – of course – back to the Austin stage. And here’s Robert Faires’ review of the whole thing.

    Daniel Hamermesh: Spending Time

    The older you get, the less time you have; but even the young are scrambling for minutes – especially nonwork minutes, especially in this country – while the clock laughs its goddamn face off, oblivious and cruel to the struggling mortals of this human race. And now here's a scholarly man who's gonna tell you (engagingly) all about that, and we reckon it's definitely worth your time.

    Theatre

    The Rover

    Scandalous! Lewd! Morally depraved! The acclaimed Hidden Room Theatre company presents this rarely performed delight from 1677 through the lens of “a few very special teen films of 1983.” (Think: Valley Girl.) So, if you’re looking for a mash-up of Restoration/New Romantic proto-feminist sexploitation complete with swashbuckling sword fights, forbidden romance, masked revelers, and bitchin’ live music, then pop your ruffled collar and behold Aphra Behn’s transgressive romp. Directed by Beth Burns and featuring a cast whose diverse talents will thrill your senses.
    Through March 3. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 5pm. Extra shows: Wed.-Thu., Feb. 27-28, 8pm. $17-35.

    Wally Workman Gallery: Deconstructing Nostalgia

    Elizabeth Chapin’s work references her Southern upbringing and the conflicted nostalgia surrounding the gentility and graciousness of the South. "Chapin views much of this culture as made possible largely by graceless and dark systems. This obfuscation of ugliness and the worship of appearance is the theme that runs throughout her new body of work." Ayup. Now, how about a large array of exemplary fauvist portraits, sometimes embellished by frames of tulle or active neon twisted like wild yarn? This fierce combo sizzles like angel spit on a griddle, makes eyes take wing. Recommended.
    Tuesdays-Sundays. Through March 24
