    Immersive event and interactive media creator Ceia G. brings an entrancing event boasting a “blend of cinematic brilliance and mystical allure, designed to captivate your senses and ignite your imagination.” During a screening of Seventies cult anime classic Belladonna of Sadness, you’ll be invited to walk through rooms crafted in the style of the film’s scenes, peruse a market of magical items, and sup upon drinks and food created to suit the night’s tempting tenor.

    Amaging!

    Nobody’s suggesting that youth is overrated, but the Eastside’s ever-sizzling Vortex Theatre and World Famous *BOB* unveil a poignant show focused on stories of elders of the queer community. The evening features a cast of five, all over the age of 60, who share 10-minute stories of their personal experiences that invite the audience to discard preconceived ideas of aging. This production is an outgrowth of *BOB*’s Campfire Queer Storytime, hosted monthly at the Vortex, and is sponsored by Rainbow Connections ATX, a program of Family Eldercare. –Wayne Alan Brenner

This unique collaboration between Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks attracts actors, artists, poets, dancers, and performers of all types throughout Texas and beyond.

Look for the Short Fringe to thrill you with talented Fest regulars Zell Miller III, Hank Schwemmer, Jennine DOC Kreuger, Tristan Mercado, Janet Maykus and Tom Booker, Teresa Johnson and Gloria C. Adams, Collin Carrothers, Pamela Paek, and the Knuckleball Now.

    Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812

    You’re a busy guy; you don’t have time to read all of War and Peace. But you’re also ashamed that you’ve not dug into the hottest Russian novel of 1869! Hark: A solution awaits at the Zach Theatre production of Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, Dave Malloy’s musical adaptation of a 70-page section of Tolstoy’s great tome. Described by the theatre as an “innovative electro-pop opera,” this two-hour-and-thirty-minute love triangle will be available as pay-what-you-will until Feb. 4. Heads-up to queers: Thursday, Feb. 1, is PRIDE night!– James Scott
