    Arden of Faversham

    Hidden Room Theatre presents the lamentable and true tale of Master Arden, his wicked wife, her insatiable lover, and the bumbling ruffians the illicit pair hire to kill him. No one's sure if Shakespeare (or Kyd? or Marlowe?) had a hand in writing the script back in the day, but we know that the show is here directed by Beth Burns and embodied by a fine and vigorous cast.

    Criss Angel RAW: The Mindfreak Unplugged

    Not just Criss Angel RAW, mind you. And not just The Mindfreak Unplugged. But Criss Angel RAW: The Mindfreak Unplugged. So, like, both raw and unplugged, that's the idea we're getting here, n'est-ce pas? But, ah, seriously: This fellow is a wildly entertaining showman, like something fucked-up and talented straight outta Arkham Asylum, and his illusions and uncanny feats can make your little prison of reality shiver.

    One Ounce Opera: Fresh Squeezed Ounce of Opera

    The goldenthroated movers and shakers of One Ounce Opera present the fifth year of this annual series, showcasing four new micro-operas in one night – and, for the first time, all four works performed on the showcase include a woman as either the composer or librettist. All of this year's works share a common theme – death – but the program is far from morbid. "Oh, there's ample humor in each piece," says OOO's Julie Fiore, "and it's enough to keep you rolling for a good while." Find out what happens with a company of powerful voices in the darkness and the light, in the premieres of The Séance, The Stranger, Non Motus, and Misfortune.
    Through Feb. 16. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm. $20.
