    American Blood Song: A Puppet Operetta of the Donner Party

    Oh, holy shit. That unstoppable Trouble Puppet crew, led by Connor Hopkins, often as sick and twisted as they are brilliant – and, yeah, they've been mind-bogglingly good at times – returns with a true-historical tale of the sort of privilege, entitlement, and hubris that leads to nation-building … and sometimes cannibalism. This spectacle is performed by Zac Crofford, Caroline Reck, Marina DeYoe-Pedraza, Indigo Rael, Jay Young, Zac Carr, and Melissa Vogt. It's a musical, too, with an original score by Mother Falcon. Recommended, but note: This is not the sort of puppet show you wanna take your smaller kids to – unless you've been feeding them long pig all this time.
    Through Aug. 17. Thu.-Sun., 8pm. $15-35.

    This is an intimate portrait of Ann Richards, the legendary late governor of Texas, bringing audiences face to face with a complex, colorful, and captivating character bigger than the state from which she hailed. Written (and originally performed) by Holland Taylor, Ann takes a revealing look at the impassioned woman who enriched the lives of her followers, friends, and family. The lady's played by the talented Libby Villari in this show, directed by the original Broadway helmsman, Benjamin Endsley Klein. And now, here's our review of the show.
    Through Sept. 8. Wed.-Fri., 7:30pm; Sat., 2:30 & 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $25-85.
