      Directed by Liz Fisher, starring Diego Arroyo Aceves as Mozart and Kareem Badr(!) as Antonio Salieri, this Tony Award-winning play (as scripted by the brilliant Peter Shaffer) features musical interludes with Mozart's beloved compositions. Listen: For one performance only, the music will be performed live by 40 members of the Central Texas Philharmonic; in the remaining performances, audiences will be treated to a "Mozart remix" by local composer Michael Morét.

"It's a good point of entry for anyone who is unfamiliar with my work," says Osato – and it's viewable 24/7 within the Canopy courtyard.

      The Plastic Bag Store

      Texas Performing Arts presents this local installation – at the Blue Genie space on Airport, no less – of Robin Frohardt's brilliant and immersive tribute to the vulgar overdoity of plastic waste that humans are subjecting themselves and the rest of our planet to. Listen: "Visit a grocery store where the shelves are stocked with thousands of original, hand-sculpted items — produce and meat, dry goods and toiletries, cakes and sushi rolls — all made from discarded, single-use plastics in an endless cacophony of packaging. When you visit, the store transforms into a cinema for a film in which inventive puppetry, shadow play, and intricate handmade sets tell the darkly comedic, sometimes tender story of how the overabundance of plastic waste we leave behind might be misinterpreted by future generations." Sensationally graphic yet more than just spectacle, this thing's got philosophical teeth as sharp as the fangs we're sinking deep into our own carotid. (Note: Some seatings will be free, via Fusebox Festival.)
      Through April 17. Sat., 11am, 1pm, 6pm, 8pm; Sun., 11am, 1pm, 4pm; Wed.-Fri., 4pm, 6pm, 8pm. $15-25.
