  • Mystery & Mayhem

    Mystery and Mayhem is an original and wacky who-done-it play presented by Youth En Route. It's a combination of The Pink Panther, Monty Python, Agatha Christie, and Annie all rolled into one beautifully bizarre murder mystery. Bring a blanket and a picnic. See y’all on the farm!

    Laguna Gloria

    This local treasure of a venue, run by those Contemporary Austin folks who also bring us the Jones Center shows Downtown, is all about the outdoors – which is perfect for these trickily navigated times of ours, n'est-ce pas? Recommended: Stop by and breathe in the air, enjoy the lawns and gardens and the many examples of world-class sculpture arrayed across the property, and (as Frankie used to say) r-e-l-a-x.

    The Black Hair Experience

    The Black Hair Experience "fuses the aesthetic of an art exhibit with the engagement of photoworthy activations," all inspired by the beauty, stories, and culture of Black hair. “This is a culturally inclusive experience that provokes real-time connections through the universal symbol of hair,” says co-founder Elizabeth Austin-Davis.
    Sat.-Sun., 10am-8pm. $30 and up.

    The Hideout

    Live improvisation is back at the Hideout! Been about, what, two years now? But now the diverse lineup of sometimes hilarious, always surprising yes-and shows has returned, with Pgraph and Maestro and more for the most unexpected delights of in-person entertainment. For instance, this weekend: American Brass, which makes Succession look tame, and Hoot Night, which riffs on skiffy tropes like there's no tomorrow. See the website for details.
