A month full of art with Print Austin


Print Austin. The celebration of works on paper includes dozens of artists and venues and runs Jan. 15-Feb. 15.

See the full list of participating artists, venues and events at printaustin.org.

‘Hir.’ The latest from Capital T Theatre is a dark comedy about a recently reunited dysfunctional family. With its examination of gender power dynamics, “Hir” is ultimately a comedy of ideas as much as it is a comedy of characters, where the philosophical and sociopolitical ideologies on stage are as important as the relationships being explored. 8 p.m. Thursday-Sunday through Jan. 22. The Off Center, 2211 Hidalgo St $20-$30. capitalt.org.

“Bloomsday.” The Texas premiere of this production by Austin Playhouse comes from one of Austin’s most acclaimed playwrights, Steven Dietz. In his literature-laden love story, an American man searches for the Irish woman who captured his heart 30 years earlier while leading a Bloomsday walking tour in Dublin. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 5 p.m. Sunday through Feb. 5. $14-$36. 6001 Airport Blvd. austinplayhouse.com.

It was an instant staple at her house from then on. The recipe...

Not just Lady Gaga: Anti-Texas bathroom bill stars have pro-LGBT cred

One minute Lady Gaga is flying over Houston, suspended by cables and dressed like Swarovski Batman. The next minute, she’s joining 140 or so entertainers to call for an end to “legislation that would target the LGBTQ community” in the Lone Star State.
