    Bernadette Nason: A Christmas Carol

    Join Austin Playhouse in celebrating the season with award-winning actress, storyteller, and author Bernadette Nason, as she reprises her one-woman version of Charles Dickens’ classic. Using the author's own abridged version, Nason vividly brings the story to life, portraying more than 30 characters in one hour. Yeah, we're awfully fond of this version – it'll do your holidays up right!
    Tue.-Wed., Dec. 17-18, 8pm. $20.

    Wally Workman Gallery: Ashley Benton and Christopher Lee Gilmer

    "Inspired by datamoshing, quantum mechanics, and the hyper saturation of imagery found in daily life, Gilmer creates oil paintings that explore the psychological effects of the figure through physical mutations that distort and merge various realities. Benton's figurative ceramics also portray a dialogue of the human condition, using symbolism as well as physical mutations to explore the depths of the subconscious. Less than reality and more than a dream, Benton and Gilmer’s work strives to give the viewer an alternative connection to the self." Note: This stuff will burrow into your optic nerves and make you feel a little weird, maybe, about the odd beauty it contains. So, yes: recommended.
