    Hamilton

    This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
    May 28-June 16. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $79-539.

    Rub a Duck

    Austin's own Frank Wo/Men Collective presents this experimental multidisciplinary physical theatre work in which 13 collaborators – dancers, actors, singers, design artists, and a bread maker – create an experience that mimics and mocks human subconsciousness. Note: This show's got some nudity and what they're calling adult content. Also, you should probably attend in swimwear or wet-ready attire, because the seating is mostly in a splash zone … mostly.
    June 13-16. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. Extra show: Sat., 4pm. $5-25.

    Book of Will

    Lauren Gunderson's excellent comedy features William Shakespeare's friends and fellow actors in The King's Men company doing whatever it takes to make sure that true versions of the Bard's plays survive – by compiling the First Folio, thwarting all the tailcoat-riding bastardized versions, faithfully recapturing the words that shaped their lives. Directed by Lara Toner Haddock for Austin Playhouse. And, prithee, what did our reviewer think of the show?
    Through June 30. Thu.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 5pm. $36-42 (student discounts available).

    Outside Mullingar

    What's outside Mullingar? Well, for one thing, two introverted thirtysomething misfits named Anthony and Rosemary, in this Tony-nominated play by John Patrick Shanley (the author of Doubt and Moonstruck, no less). This is the Austin premiere of a very funny and heartbreaking love story, directed by Michael Cooper for Reverie Theatre Company and featuring live Irish fiddle music throughout.

    The Group

    Here's an intimate exploration of grief and death within the safe container of fictional relationships, as designed and directed by Katie Green and Michael Rau for Twin Alchemy. Two grief-support groups run concurrently without knowledge of each other: one for the living and one for their dead. Over the course of two hours, secrets are revealed, a year passes, grief evolves, and life (or death) goes on. Note: This is not a traditional performance, but a three-hour, extremely participatory, interactive theatre experience that emphasizes relationships and introspection.
    Through June 22. Fri., 7pm; Sat., 2:30pm & 7pm. $10-25.
