While it’s common to find a play within a play (see anything from Hamlet to The Drowsy Chaperone), the Overtime’s latest spins that technique by presenting a theater within a theater. Penned by Iran-born playwright William Mohammad Razavi, the “comedy about love, theater and the magic of both” plays out backstage at the Oglethorpe during a stormy performance of Egg Fear. Starring combative actors Delilah Small and Antonio Valencia, the unseen production unfolds in a backstage area shared by an agent, a magician, an understudy, a delivery guy and a white rabbit.
Not only is Dan St. Germain a regular on Best Week Ever, but he also has a half hour Comedy Central standup special coming out this spring. He’s been on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver’s NY Standup Show, and he’s even created and starred in his own web series called “Kicking Dan Out,” along with his own podcast called “My Dumb Friends.” He’s a playful guy and never fails to give the audience a good time.
If you grow tired of getting all your chuckles from people who look, think and act just like you and your group of friends, Tanyalee Davis might have the laughs you’re looking for. Standing 3-foot-6, Davis’ perspective is necessarily different from most, but the common threads of human experience and her gifts as a storyteller make her endlessly relatable, and the joy in her enormously confident, sex-positive act is infectious and life-affirming. Promoting empathy through dirty jokes? There oughta be a prize for that.
After having lung surgery, singer-songwriter Ron Young is back in the mix with his 4-piece Americana band.
One doesn’t usually associate Americana singer-songwriters with being gear nerds, but Austin Forrest can spar with the gnarliest of roadies. Using a looping pedal, Forrest lays down the rhythm section on the bongo and cajón, the song’s bones on the rhythm guitar, then shreds lead on top. Forrest loops three part harmonies to complement his tunes, challenging the role of the barside/restaurant patio crooner.
SAY Si student filmmakers will premiere Pleasant, a true story of a young boy from the 1920's on a journey to find his father.

The San Antonio Current, in collaboration with the Maverick Music Festival presents the Lone Star Live Summer Music series. The first August edition features live music by local acts Curtis Grimes, Mitch Webb and the Swindles, and Garrett T. Capps and the Only Hipsters.
Lindsay Anderson’s 1968 classic If…. stars Malcom MacDowell as a radical youth who bristles against the forces of authority in a rigid boarding school. First in a trilogy (followed by O Lucky Man! in 1973 and Britannia Hospital in 1982), the darkly humorous, violent and at times surreal film won the Palme d’Or at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival and has been hailed as “a landmark of British countercultural cinema.”

Designer David Yurman, Neiman Marcus President and Chief Merchandising Officer, Jim Gold and Harper's BAZAAR fashion and beauty editor, Avril Graham present the Venetian Quatrefoil, an exclusive new collection.
Picture a 10-gallon hat filled with Lone Star beer. Sound good? Sounds like you’re an ideal crowd member for August’s installment of Lone Star Live, switching from the free series’ indie and punk inclinations toward country. On his new release Our Side of the Fence, Curtis Grimes (pictured) takes the vocal chops he honed on Season 1 of The Voice and puts them to twangy good use. With his band the Swindles, Mitch Webb settles in the cozy middle point between Doug Sahm and Bob Dylan. With the Only Hipsters, Garrett T. Capps plays a violent, fuzzed-out form of blues rock ‘n’ roll.
This original, disney animation made its debut back in November, though its immense popularity never keeps it far from the publics eye. Considered one of the highest grossing animated films of all time, Frozen has captured the hearts of not only children, but also adults who can’t deny they’ve belted out “Let it Go,” from time to time. Even if you have no child at home, who will no doubt beg you to go to this free screening, rest assured you will be in the comfort of fans who range from the youngest to the oldest in San Antonio. Don’t miss out on this free screening. You know you need your Frozen fix. This screening is located in the park next to the Alamo Heights Pool (Nature Trailhead Park).
Pushing boundaries for 29 years, Jump-Start Performance Co. is an SA institution rooted in experimentation and collaboration. A former fixture in the Blue Star Arts Complex, the performance art troupe unveils a mysterious new production this week in its new Beacon Hill space. Directed by Marisela Barrera and developed through “a rehearsal process of performance experiments, improvisation and story-sharing,” Oscuridad plays out during the final hours of a doomed cantina frequented by shadowy characters La Lechuza, Fantasma, El Señor, the Handless Maid and La Muerte.
The Award-winning Bluegrass Music
Alamo Drafthouse hosts a screening of co-directors Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren's documentary about John Wojtowicz, followed by the classic bank robbery film he inspired.
It is challenging, to say the least, to make electronic music with organic sensibilities—with soul. All four bands on this stacked bill, however, manage to pull this off with creative aplomb to spare. At the top of the bill, Houston’s Hooked Rugs crafts delightfully fuzzy synth jams that incorporate industrial sounds and chant-like vocals, creating a mesmerizing and mystical experience. The superb gallery show also features the eclectic yet minimalistic sounds of ATX’s Slow Pulse and SA’s Massiver (pictured) and Delenda, who create, respectively, droning synth miasmas and über-chill new-age ditties.
