Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 1/06/2013 THE GAME'S AFOOT
Austin Playhouse
12/13-1/13/2013
Austin Playhouse is opening their season with Ken Ludwig's sparkling new comic murder-mystery The Game's Afoot (or Holmes for the Holidays). The play will open at Austin Playhouse's new temporary theatre space at Highland Mall. It's December 1936 and Broadway star William Gillette, admired the world over for his leading role in the play Sherlock Holmes, is shot onstage during a performance. While recuperating, he invites his fellow cast-members to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. Then it's up to Gillette himself, as he assumes the persona of his beloved Holmes, to track down the killer before the next victim appears. The danger and hilarity are non-stop in this glittering whodunit set during the Christmas holidays.

INVISABLE INC
Rollins Studio Theatre at The Long Center (Produced by Hidden Room Theatre)
1/11-1/20/2013
INVISIBLE INC The Hidden Room is proud to present Paul Menzer's (Brats of Clarence) stylish and crackling noire mystery INVISIBLE INC. This fantastical story swirls around feuding magicians in depression-era New York, one a classic showman in the ritzy theatre palaces of Manhattan, the other a roguish upstart struggling in the back alley speakeasies of downtown. Both men have something to prove, a lady to win, and a mystery to solve, but the only constant in this world of misdirection is danger. Written by Paul Menzer, and starring Robert Matney, Liz Fisher, Joseph Garlock, Todd Kassens, Julia Lorenz-Olson, and back from the UK after his brilliant turn as Jack Cade in Rose Rage, Laurence Pears. Almost-live musical accompaniment nightly by the ghostly spectre of Graham Reynolds. Directed by Beth Burns, original music by Graham Reynolds, set by Ia Enstera, lights by Megan Reilly, props by Justin Cox. Proudly supported in part by the Redd Carpet Fund. Livestreamed on closing night, Sunday Janaury 20th at 5PM. Appears at the Long Center's Rollins Studio January 11th, only to vanish into thin air January 20th. The Long Center Rollins Studio January 11-20, 2013 (Mon-Sat 8PM, Sun 5PM, dark on Jan 15th) $18.50 running time approximately 90 minutes www.hiddenroomtheatre.com

Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 1/06/2013 QUILLS
City Theatre (Produced by Different Stages)
1/4-1/26/2013
January 4 – 26, 2013 City Theater, 3823 Airport Suite D Performances Thursdays-Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 5:30pm Purchase Advance Tickets Online: https://secure.buyplaytix.com/diffstages/ Pick-Your-Price Tickets: $15, $20, $25, or $30 Tickets purchased by credit card online or at the theatre may be subject to a small service charge. Different Stages continues its 2011-2012 season with Doug Wright's Quills. Sex. Perversion. Violence. These are the themes of the tales that drip from the ink-laden quills of the notoriously irreverent Marquis de Sade in this Obie Award winning play. Confined to the Charenton Asylum for the Insane for the outlandish escapades he'd committed during the Napoleonic Era, the Marquis continues to pen his stories to the delight of the young seamstress, Madeleine, and to the scorn of Charenton's devout Abbe de Coulmeir. When the Abbe attempts to silence the Marquis by taking his quills, his ink, and his paper, something intriguing occurs: the Marquis still finds a way to voice his scandalous yarns. As the Abbe's religious devotion clashes with the Marquis's dedication to freedom of expression, the audience is treated to a tale of wit, irony, blasphemy, philosophy, and the struggle for power told partly as a blend of comedy of manners and Grand Guignol with a dash of grotesque exaggeration and a soupcon of gore. Directed by Norman Blumensaadt (Is Life Worth Living?) Quills features Craig Kanne (You Can't Take it with You) as the Marquis de Sade and Jean Budney (Is Life Worth Living?) as his wife Renee Pelagie. Travis Bedard (Doctor Faustus) plays the director of Charenton Asylum. Joe Hartman (Vampire Lesbians of Sodom) plays the Abbe de Coulmier, a priest at the asylum. Melissa Vogt-Patterson (Humpty) plays the seamstress, Madeleine. Tony Salinas (You Can't Take it with You) plays the architect. Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 5:30pm. Tickets are Pick-Your-Price: $15, $20, $25, and $30.

Now Playing Onstage in Austin - Week of 1/06/2013 TRU
ZACH Theatre
1/10-3/10/2013
TRU starring Jaston Williams Written by Jay Presson Allen Directed by LARRY RANDOLPH Greater Tuna star Jaston Williams inhabits Truman Capote in a virtuoso performance of the charming, acerbic, fragile, and enigmatic writer. In this one-man tour de force, Williams' astonishing portrayal of the In Cold Blood and Breakfast at Tiffany's author is by turns hilarious, vulnerable, and confessional. The audience becomes confidants to TRU's trademark wit and honesty. Packed houses, standing ovations, and waves of laughter characterized this show in its initial run at ZACH Theatre 12 years ago making it the hottest ticket in town. This production promises to be even more fun this time around. "A man who doesn't dream is like a man who doesn't sweat: he stores up a lot of poison." — Truman Capote ZACH's Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley says: "By popular demand, I am bringing back one of our favorite plays from a dozen years ago that featured one of our favorite performances—Jaston Williams as Truman Capote, the renowned writer who had a flair for drinking freely, living freely, dreaming freely, and jabbing freely at the underbellies of New York City's social elite. Just like the Greater Tuna characters that Jaston made famous, this role fits him like a glove. The play is hilarious and poignant in his hands, and the intimacy of the Whisenhunt Theatre makes it feel like you are having drinks with a great friend in their stylish apartment. The good news is that this friend has the best stories and gossip to share!"
