    Playhouse Creatures

    April De Angelis’ new play relates how, in 1663, King Charles II reopened England's theatre playhouses and, for the first time, women were able to take the stage. This is the story of those first actresses, the "playhouse creatures" whose ambitions, talent, and risk for artistic equality made their lives truly uncertain. Directed by Lindsay McKenna for City Theatre.
    Through Aug. 5. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 3pm. $15-25.

    Summer Stock Austin: The Music Man

    Yup, it's that Meredith Willson musical classic of long-con chicanery and how a librarian turns a chiseler's calculating heart to sweet honey in the crock. "76 Trombones," "Ya Got Trouble," and so on, as you surely know. Here directed and choreographed by Ginger Morris. Note: You'll have to get to the show by car, bike, scooter, or some other such conveyance, as this town of ours – gasp! – has no monorail.
    Through Aug. 11. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2 & 7:30pm. $33 and up.
