    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    There's a stage upstairs, there's a stage downstairs, there's coffee all over the place and all sorts of shows and classes here. This Thursday, famed house troupe Parallelogramophonograph returns to rock the stage before unleashing the latest anything-goes Free Fringe. Friday's got the distaff darlings of Physics Curse presenting another – another – goddamnit, Don't Interrupt Me!, followed by the all-star Big Bash shindig, and a Threefer, and that battle royale of TheatreDome to finish the night. And, on Saturday night, it's that Victor Hugo-your-way of Grand Misery, or maybe you wanna Put Your Lips Together and Blow, gumshoe? And don't forget the latenight improv donnybrook of Maestro! And – see website for more.
