    Sherlock Holmes

    This online theatrical reading of the play by William Gillette & Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, presented by Austin Shakespeare and the local chapter of Sisters In Crime, features Helen Merino as the renowned consulting detective in a case that involves a dead English girl, her sister (still living), a European prince, and a collection of incriminating letters. All this, and Moriarity (Sam Mandelbaum), too! Bonus: A female Dr. Watson (Corinna Browning). Directed by Ann Ciccolella, with Helyn Rain Messenger, Rachel Wolff, Bennie Braswell, Ev Lunning, Derek Webster, Joe Kelley, Chuck Winkler, Ethan Santo, and Matthew Graham Wagner – and virtual backgrounds by that Lowell Bartholomee.

    In the Ether

    What's your experience of living in this increasingly cybernetic world, citizen? UT's Department of Theatre and Dance presents Erica Gionfriddo's investigation of embodiment and virtual identity, a staged rehearsal of possible realities that uses live streaming, emergent technologies, and performance to explore elements of cyborg and queer theories. We reckon if anyone's going to make this work (and work engagingly), it'll be that ARCOS Dance co-founder Gionfriddo.
    Thu.-Sun., Dec. 3-6, 7:30pm. Pay what you can.

    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.
