    The Hunchback Variations and An Apology by Doctor John Faustus

    One of our favorite playwrights, because his works are so smart and odd and literary and (often) hilarious, is Mickle Maher. He wrote Capital T’s award-winning hits Song About Himself, The Strangerer, There Is a Happiness That Morning Is, and Spirits to Enforce. Now here's Mark Pickell directing Ken Webster and Robert Fisher in two of the man's shorter plays – we get to see both performances in one fine show, yes – and we're so fucking stoked about this. Especially because we want to know what happens, what the brilliant Maher thinks would happen, when "noted composer Beethoven and noted hunchback Quasimodo embark on creating an impossible sound."
    Through Nov. 17. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-30.
