    It's … Hideoutrageous!

    Two stages, more fun. This Thursday, it's an early PGraph show, followed by a new Austin Secrets preview and the anything-goes Free Fringe. Friday's got that hilarious grand-slam of entertainment with The Knuckleball Now and the all-star Big Bash shindig, a Threefer, and then, OMG, it's TheatreDome. On Saturday night, after the student-pimpin' Maestro RAW, it's the return of the city's favorite Austin Secrets show before the all-star Maestro competition rocks the stage with antics a-go-go.

    Esther's: New Year, New Follies

    Ah, the fun seldom pauses, with musical comedy skits, magic, and a political satirical revue where the bustling backdrop of Sixth Street is on view through the stagefront window! Reminisce on all the news-makers, celebrities, events, and mayhem that made 2018 so memorable with A Year in Review. Watch as the new Dems diversify the Hill and take on Trump in Bohemian Crapsody, and more. Bonus: That sexy magician Ray Anderson is going to wow you with illusions your mind won't believe your eyes have seen!
    Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25-35.
