    Funniest Person in Austin

    Ah, here it comes again – the final weekend of the annual competition that brings all the ATX funny to one stage, at least sequentially, in order to determine who's gonna wear the cape and crown. Oh! Who's gonna be the winnah? Who's gonna be the champeen? This is the last weekend of semifinals, followed by Monday night's ultimate battle for stand-up supremacy. We've been ranting at you for the last several issues to make your reservations, citizen! WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
    Through May 13. $6 and up.

    Once There Were Six Seasons

    Glass Half Full Theatre's award-winning production returns as a three-part interactive experience that invites audiences to travel the globe and explore humankind’s impact on climate change: Step onstage with the puppeteers to observe ecosystems from the Americas, Africa, India, Asia, and the Arctic and watch as the tiny humans and animals struggle against drought, flood, heat, and violent storms. This complex spectacle is directed by Caroline Reck and Gricelda Silva, features original choreography by Kelly Hasandras, and – listen, it's a true marvel of narrative and object manipulation and will delight you endlessly, even as its global implications send a little chill down your spine. See our full review right here.
    Through May 4. Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 7pm; Mon., 7pm. $12-30.
