    Radio: 30

    Ever have one of those days? Now you can fix it and rescue your embattled, world-weary spirit by catching this bit of brilliance on a favorite local stage. Chris Earle's acclaimed dark comedy, about a hotshot voice talent who falters while recording a 30-second radio spot, features a stunning performance by Mical Trejo (coincidentally, a hotshot voice talent and actor), sound design by Robert S. Fisher, and the whole gloriously unraveling thing directed by Ken Webster for Hyde Park Theatre. And, oh! Here's what the Chron's Patti Hadad said about the show's first run years ago.
    Through July 15. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $21-23 (pay what you can, Thursdays).

    Lizzie, the Musical

    That legendary company called Doctuh Mistuh Productions returns to Austin after a five-year hiatus to present this rock musical adaption of the grisly Borden Family murders in 1893 and the subsequent trial of Lizzie Borden. The show – which premiered in NYC in 2009 and is written by Steven Cheslik-deMeyer, Tim Maner, and Alan Steven Hewitt – is directed here by the irrepressible Michael McKelvey, with musical direction by Ellie Jarrett Shattles. And this is our full review of the production!
    Through July 30. Thu.-Sat., 7:30pm; Sun., 2pm. $24 and up.
