    Carmen

    This new show takes the well-known opera as a jumping-off point, presenting an all-Latinx cast exploring borders, survival, gender, and love. Directed by kt shorb for Generic Ensemble Company, Carmen "uses telenovela tropes to reinvent the tale of passion, jealousy, and familia" as queer night life clashes with ICE raids in the West Texas town of El Paso. And here's what our Arts Editor Robert Faires thinks of the show.
    Through June 2. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $10-30.

    Killer Girls

    Whoa, that American Berserk Theatre company, first bringing the world their dystopian blockbuster Subject to Control, then following it with For Time and Eternity (about that whole Joseph-Smith-and-the-Mormons thing), now presenting this pop horror revenge comedy – written and directed by Kaci Beeler – in which five female students on the Fruit Ninja Team of John Wilkes Booth University are invited to a tournament in #grabherbythepussy, Florida, and, ah, well, listen: Payback's a bitch. (A rabid, extremely bloodthirsty bitch, we might add.) Warning note: Gore effects, strobe lights, loud music, themes of high violence and sexual assault, possibly the lamentation of any MRA in the audience. Recommended? See what that Robert Faires has to say about it.
    Through May 27. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $20-25.

    Seminar

    This is Theresa Rebeck's arch comedy in which four aspiring novelists sign up for private writing classes with an international literary figure … and things go kind of Lord of the Flies, emotionally speaking. Directed by Bryan Bradford for Jarrott Productions. And here's what our reviewer thought of the show.
    Through June 3. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $23-30.

    Small Mouth Sounds

    "On a weeklong silent retreat in the woods, six wildly disparate urbanites looking for life balance find that staying quiet doesn’t necessarily bring inner peace."

And here's what our reviewer T. Lynn Mikeska thought of the show.
