Serve up theater and tea this Easter weekend


Theater & dance

“Greater Tuna” at the Long Center. The hilarious hit comedy about the third smallest town in Texas — where the Lion’s Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies — is coming back to theaters, this time with co-creator Jaston Williams sitting in the director’s chair. Although written and first performed more than 30 years ago, the residents of Tuna could not be more up-to-date. Contemporary politicians and the religious right have put the basis for the comedy in “Greater Tuna” back on the front pages of today’s newspapers. But its not the cover of Time magazine; it’s a very hilarious play. 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday. $29-$89. 701 W. Riverside Drive. thelongcenter.org.

“Cabaret.” Don’t miss the final showing of this Tony Award-winning musical. The St. Edward’s University Department of Performing Arts is taking on “Cabaret,” set in 1931 Berlin, in the seedy nightlife of the Kit Kat Klub during the Nazis’ rise to power. 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Saturday. $23-$28. 3001 S. Congress Ave. 512-448-8484, stedwards.edu/mary-moody-northen-theatre.

Coming up

Sunday Afternoon Tea at Brentwood Social House. Forego a traditional Easter feast — or, perhaps, follow it up with — this High Tea event at one of Austin’s newer restaurants. The menu will include double-decker sandwiches, a Devonshire scone, other desserts like beehive tarts, battenburg cake and shortbread, and unlimited tea. There are a limited number of seats, but Brentwood Social House hosts the tea party regularly on weekends. $34. 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday. 1601 W. Koenig Lane. brentwoodsocial.com/afternoontea/april-16th-sunday-afternoon-tea.

The rustic French dessert that one-ups a pancake - and it's healthful

Like some French-country dishes, a clafoutis (klah-foo-TEE) sounds like something fancy and complicated, but it's actually homey and easy to make. The fruit-laden dessert pancake is elegant in its simplicity - glorious, golden brown and sugar dusted. And nearly all it entails is making a basic pancake batter, pouring it into a pie dish, adding the...

A wafer of toast tilted like an oversized painter’s beret atop supple bubble-gum-colored salmon cooked sous vide to a buttery finish ($6). A dollop of creme fraiche held baubles of smoked salmon roe and a teeny slice of pickled radish in place. Notes of salt and sea. The pop of roe, the crunch of toast, the slow melting of the fish as you take...

You probably know who Andrew McMahon is, but you don’t know you know who he is. You’ve heard his songs—they’re the kind of songs that a middle school friend would have burned onto a mix CD they shared with you, or that a high school crush would have played in their car while you sat together in their driveway, not...
