    Esther's: September Snitches and Subpoenas!

    Ah, the fun seldom pauses, with musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue with the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street on view through the stagefront window! Dig Trump and Putin's steamy and secretive bromance in a musical parody of Grease, watch as Beto vs. Ted satirizes political attack ads while the Senate race picks up speed, and learn that, Bezos be damned, you can still find love in the Whole Foods cereal aisle. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to walk right through a mirror. No? You don't think so? Then you tell me how it's done, bubba.
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.
