    Amaging!

    Nobody’s suggesting that youth is overrated, but the Eastside’s ever-sizzling Vortex Theatre and World Famous *BOB* unveil a poignant show focused on stories of elders of the queer community. The evening features a cast of five, all over the age of 60, who share 10-minute stories of their personal experiences that invite the audience to discard preconceived ideas of aging. This production is an outgrowth of *BOB*’s Campfire Queer Storytime, hosted monthly at the Vortex, and is sponsored by Rainbow Connections ATX, a program of Family Eldercare. –Wayne Alan Brenner
    Feb. 9-11. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $15-37.

    Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812

    You’re a busy guy; you don’t have time to read all of War and Peace. But you’re also ashamed that you’ve not dug into the hottest Russian novel of 1869! Hark: A solution awaits at the Zach Theatre production of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Dave Malloy’s musical adaptation of a 70-page section of Tolstoy’s great tome. Described by the theatre as an “innovative electro-pop opera,” this two-hour-and-thirty-minute love triangle will be available as pay-what-you-will until Feb. 4. Heads-up to queers: Thursday, Feb. 1, is PRIDE night!– James Scott
    Jan. 30-March 3. Wed.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $25.

    Comedy

    The Second City: She the People

    The ladies of Second City return with a brand new version of their sockdolager of a sketch show – entirely created, designed, and performed by the fearlessly funny women themselves. This mimosa-and-madness-fueled foray roasts the patriarchy, taking on everything from having it all to having that sick feeling your government is trying to send you back to the Middle Ages. Get ready to laugh, they heartily insist, as the resistance continues!
    Sun., Feb. 11, 7pm. $29 and up.
