    Poolboy00

    Presented primarily on Twitch, Sam Mayer's poolboy00 is part reality show, part livestream. Watch poolboy00 hang with his friends, work out, write in his journal, talk to strangers, and try to make his life into art. Listen: "It’s hard because life is mostly really boring so please chat with poolboy00 and help something interesting happen. Because something has to happen. Right?" Directed by Mike Steele.
    Thu.-Sat., Oct. 29-31, 8:30pm. $5.

    Conspiracy Play

    Less Than Three presents a choose-your-own-adventure sort of experience via Facebook, wherein "the audience, led by Problematic-Patriot, will listen to fringe theorists to figure out who is the liar among them." Interaction and decisions will directly affect the artistic experience and audience members may receive emails or direct messages giving them inside information that may prove vital. Note: Conspiracy Play was conceived in collaboration with artists from Austin, Houston, Dallas, Washington, New York, and Chicago, and built using video game theory, theatrical devising, and improvisational techniques.
    Through Nov. 7. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $15.

    The Social Distancing Festival

    This is an online community, as playwright and unstoppable force of creative nature Nick Green informs us, and it's been activated to "celebrate and showcase the work of the many artists around the world who have been affected by the need for social distancing that has come about due to the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)." It's not Austin-based, this virtual and ongoing festival of all kinds of performance arts, but damned if there aren't a few talented Austinites among the eclectic mix.

    Zach Theatre: Songs Under The Stars

    These "socially distant outdoor concerts, performed on the People's Plaza outside of the Topfer at ZACH," where you sit in "pods" and cabanas under the beautiful Austin sky, are cabaret-like events, see? And Chanel, the star of London’s Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, closes out this series with a tribute to the female vocalists who shaped her (Nov. 5-8. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm).
    Thursdays-Sundays. Through Nov. 8. $70 for a two-person pod.
