    Atlantis: A Puppet Opera

    Ethos and the Vortex present this revival of their theatrical spectacle that reveals a mythic world of warring religious zealots obsessed with world domination and nonrenewable energy. With an original score by Chad Salvata, puppets designed by Ann Marie Gordon and Melissa Vogt, a talented cast working the puppets and giving full voice to Anderson Dear's vocal arrangments, and the whole thing is directed by that unstoppable Bonnie Cullum. Note: Puppets, yes, but this ain't a kiddie show. Bonus: ASL-interpreted performance on Sept. 8.
    Through Sept. 29. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $15-35.

    Theatre

    Black Dog

    First, note that this play deals with themes of violence, cannibalism, and memory and is not for the faint of heart (or stomach). That's because Chris Fontanes has written about the relationship between two women who capture, torture, kill, and consume men who have committed sex crimes. And it's directed by Dani Stetka for Bottle Alley Theatre Company.
    Through Sept. 23. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $10.
