Austin Friday, August 8 Events

Merry Wives of Windsor. 8 pm at the Vortex. The Weird Sisters Women’s Theater collective presents The Merry Wives of Windsor by William Shakespeare.

Set in the Texan ranch lands of 1957 and performed by an entirely female cast, the Weird Sisters production offers an original take on this classic. Event 8/9.
