    Andrew Dismukes

This opportunity to catch the guy onstage at the Velv is like a don't-miss treat you can give yourself this weekend. So, what, it's not your birthday?

    EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING! EVERYTHING!

    To close this 19th year of making dances for her company, Kathy Dunn Hamrick has revisited pivotal moments from previous works, placed them within new contexts, given them new meaning, and created a whimsical hourlong show that stands alone as an entirely new dance. So now here comes everything KDHDC, in a stunning reinvention of original music scores, graphic art, video, and costumes.
    May 30-June 2. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 4pm. $19-21.

    Theatre

    Hamilton

    This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
    May 28-June 16. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $79-539.

    Wakey, Wakey

    "Though the man telling the jokes is sitting down (he's in a wheelchair), dying is a stand-up routine in this glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno,” states The New York Times. From the playwright of Thom Pain (based on nothing) comes this welcome work of theatre, embodied here by Ken Webster and Maria Latiolais; directed by Mark Pickell for Capital T Theatre. And here's our review of the show's previous presentation.
    Through June 1. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-30.
