    Here's a roving tour that's also a performance that's also a journey inside the Austin Central Library. The creative raconteurs of paper chairs are bringing music, dance, visual art, and storytelling "to illuminate the depth and dimensions of the local arts community inside one of Austin’s most vibrant public spaces." And, in the end, the love you take is equal to – no, wait, we mean: In the end, you wind up with a mug of hot cocoa on the library's rooftop garden. Recommended!
    Sat., Jan. 12, 2pm. Free, but RSVP.

Directed by Michael Myers for Austin Playhouse.
