Fans of "Drunk History" and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare", which combines an entirely serious Shakespeare play with an entirely inebriated cast member. For the last six years, "Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare" has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and now the cast has brought the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where cast members drink beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sing the "Dawson's Creek" theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bare a nipple or two. Brush up on your Shakespeare knowledge and head down to The North Door, because this is the Bard as you never knew you wanted to see him before. [less-]

See the romantic comedy short film "Good Hair", fresh off of great reviews and recognition at film festivals throughout the Southeast, at the New Movement Theater in Austin. Starring real-life couple Fray Forde and Catherine Dee Holly, the story begins when Frankie learns that her boyfriend Khi has used up the last of her conditioner on what promises to be a big day at work. As the day progresses and Frankie's bountiful head of red, curly hair grows wildly untamed, so do her feelings toward Khi. This seemingly insignificant argument reveals the larger problems in their relationship: financial worries, job insecurity, and fear of the future. "Good Hair" reminds us that every relationship has a few split ends. After the film, the laughs continue with top stand-up comedians, fun audience giveaways and more. [less-]
