    Strange, But Perfect

    In Carlo Lorenzo Garcia's new play, the year 2020 was a never-ending river of bad news in which marketing assistant Charlie from NYC decided to quarantine at his grandma's house in rural America. But, WTF, someone else was already there: a townie who's been acting as Charlie's grandma's caretaker? Weirdness, hilarity, and complex humanity ensue. Directed by A. Skola Summers for Street Corner Arts, featuring Natalie D. Garcia and the playwright himself.
    Through Jan. 29. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $25.

    The Wooster Group: The B-Side

    The show's full name is The B-Side: Negro Folklore From Texas State Prisons: A Record Album Interpretation, and it's an original performance based on an LP of work songs, spirituals, and toasts recorded in 1964 in Texas’ then-segregated prison farms. Presented by Eric Berryman, Jasper McGruder, and Philip Moore of NYC's nigh-on legendary Wooster Group, the production also provides context from the book Wake Up Dead Man: Hard Labor and Southern Blues by Bruce Jackson, the folklorist who recorded the album.
    Wed.-Sat., Jan. 26-29, 7:30pm. $10-40.
