    Theatre

    Hamilton

    This, in case you somehow didn't know (and please accept our sincere congratulations on finally waking up from that years-long coma, yo, it's good to have you back), is Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop musical about America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. Brought to town by the good people of Broadway in Austin, it's a phenomenon that's worthy of its endless hype, and they say tickets are possibly still available if you were born on a full moon, the wind is coming in from the northeast, and the Westlake sibyl dances a clockwise tarantella during consultation. Or, better: See the website right here for the show's two-days-before ticket lottery.
    May 28-June 16. Tue.-Fri., 8pm; Sat., 2 & 8pm; Sun., 1 & 7pm. $79-539.

    Stephen L. Clark Gallery: Ornithology

    Citizens, rejoice! Because this is a new show by Kate Breakey, including hand-colored images printed on silk and embroidered with thread, a variety of unique quail eggs, and much more: powerful in its beauty, nigh on devastating in its delicacy, and highly recommended.
    Through July 6
