    St. Nicholas

    In this darkly comic one-man performance written by Conor McPherson, a theater critic relates tales of his life among the vampires. Last time 'round, the local media called the show "hilarious, harrowing" and "a must-see" and said, "Hyde Park Theatre's Ken Webster holds the audience utterly spellbound." And it's true: He totally fecking does, and this brilliant and brilliantly twisted show will make your shadows dance a goddamn hornpipe for having witnessed such strange beauty. Look, our own reviewer thinks so, too.
    Through April 22. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $21 and up.

    Ain’t Too Proud

    This new Broadway musical follows the Temptations’ extraordinary journey from the streets of Detroit to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, showing how their signature dance moves and silky-smooth harmonies earned them an amazing 42 Top 10 hits (with 14 reaching No. 1). Yeah, you know those hits. Come hear them now, spectacularly!
    Through April 2. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $30 and up.

    The Dragonfly Princess

    The Vortex presents ethos' classic tale of magic, power, and transformation. Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness, Chad Salvata created the story, music, and aesthetics of this epic wherein we "journey with Princess Mala as she rides Xéphyra the Dragonfly into the wilds in search of Vyn, the renegade Sorceress. The Magic of the Pearls, the Mysteries of the Temples, and the Secrets of the Ages are revealed as Mala is transformed from the Green Princess into the Red Queen." The intense musical spectacle won a B. Iden Payne Award in 2007, and this new production directed by Bonnie Cullum features eight additional scenes and songs – and all new designs and choreography.
    Through April 15. Thu.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 6pm. $15-37.
