Enjoy Kevin Hart show, Arthur Miller’s 'The Price' Wednesday


1. Jarrott Productions’ “The Price”

7:30 p.m. Oct. 19-22. $18-$25. Trinity Street Theatre, 901 Trinity St. jarrottproductions.com.

Jarrott Productions presents Arthur Miller’s classic about the cost of furniture — and the cost of keeping secrets. Some critics have hailed “The Price” as Miller’s best work, surpassing even the more well-known “Death of a Salesman.” The production stars Scott Galbreath, Amanda Cooley Davis, Rick Smith and B. Iden Payne Awards 2016 Best Actor nominee David R. Jarrott. Free garage and street parking is available Wednesday evenings.

2. J.D. McPherson at Continental Club

10 p.m. Oct. 19. $22. 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub.com.

On two albums with Rounder Records, rising Tulsa, Okla., star McPherson has dug deep into the roots of classic 1950s rock ’n’ roll, which makes his show — he’s had three days to play there — a perfect fit tor the old-school-cool aesthetic of the Continental. McPherson plays at 10 p.m., with Austin musician Whitney Rose, who calls her genre “vintage-pop-infused, neo-traditional country,” following at midnight. — Peter Blackstock

3. “Kevin Hart: What Now?”

7:15 and 10 p.m. Oct. 19. $10.75. Alamo Lakeline, 14028 US-183, and other locations. drafthouse.com/austin/show/kevin-hart-what-now.

Last August, comedian Kevin Hart went from superstar to full-tilt rock-star with a record-setting performance in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field. It was the first time a comedian ever performed to a sold-out crowd at a football stadium. Now, you can revisit the historic night and, most importantly, laugh along with thousands of fellow fans with this new concert film, which features his kinetic set as well as a few fun cinematic extras.

4. “The Ticket: A Live Recording and Presidential Debate Watch Party”

6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Oct. 19. Free. KLRU Studio 6A, 2405-B Whitis Ave. facebook.com/events/172307826551918/.

Into politics?

Root and Philpott will kick off the evening with a review of the latest news from the campaign trail. Then, following the live recording, the third presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will air. The recording begins at 7 p.m., and the debate starts at 8 p.m.
