The 30 or so pieces in this exhibit showcase artists who explore relationships in space, geometry and buildings.

Matthew Lopez’s inventive new comedy is a distant relative of gender-bending classics such as Some Like It Hot, Kinky Boots and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.

See how that great idea is brought to life in a show that The Hollywood Reporter says delivers “amusing dialogue and farcical humor.”

If you love dinner theater, here’s a chance to see new and experimental work for less than the price of a regular season ticket.

This year’s Pressure Cooker production is Please Open Your Mouth by Joanna Garner, directed by Norah Elges Schneyer. The audience is invited to an underground supper club, where diners will explore their fetishes and fantasies around food and sex. Yum.
