March 26-28 are the last dates to check out Table 8 Production’s Motel. Staged in Downtown’s Gateway Motel, the “immersive experience” is a creeper’s dream that borrows themes of sex and class from the 1897 German play, La Ronde. Actors are encouraged to improvise so each performance is unique … and intense. Table8LV.com.
ART IMITATING ART
This weekend is also your final opportunity to witness Venus in Fur, the second annual collaboration between the Cockroach and Nevada Conservatory Theatres. A playwright auditions a woman so perfect for the role he has written, it becomes difficult to decipher what is real and what’s on paper. See it play out March 26-29 at Art Square Theatre. CockroachTheatre.com.
BY US, FOR US
We oughta applaud local emerging artists, especially when their muse is Las Vegas itself. Sin City-centric works by 12 UNLV MFA students are on display in Creating in the Desert, viewable at the Nevada Humanities Program Gallery Downtown through March 27. UNLV.edu.
CALLING ALL TREKKIES
Bunkhouse Saloon hosts Geeks Who Drink for a very special Star Trek-themed pub quiz on March 28. Questions will cover territory from all TV iterations as well as most of the films. No word on whether you must successfully Vulcan salute to enter. You will, however, need to cough up $5. BunkhouseDowntown.com.
