White Rabbit Red Rabbit

Nassim Soleimanpour's play is performed by different actors every night, and they aren't allowed to read the script until they walk onstage. The experimental play deals with authoritarian governments. But other than that, there's not much that can be said without spoiling it. Artists Repertory Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison St., 503-241-1278, 7:30 pm. Through April 15. $25.


Ballet was built on gender duality: Women dancers flutter around en pointe, and male dancers almost exclusively lead duets. Oregon Ballet Theater attempts to take that dynamic out of its element with a series of all-male and all-female pieces. Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, 503-222-5538, 7:30 pm. Through April 21. $60-$102.

Hannibal Buress

Onstage, comedian Hannibal Buress is so laid back it's often hard to tell whether he's falling asleep or just high—and somehow, that makes observational non sequiturs hit even harder. Keller Auditorium, 222 SW Clay St., 503-248-4335, 8 pm. $30-$45.

Tender Table One-Year Anniversary

The pop-up storytelling series Tender Table—which focuses on themes of food, family and identity from a non-binary perspective—celebrates its first anniversary with a dance party and the promise of tres leches cake, natch.

Twilight: Los Angeles 1992

Written two years after the LA riots, Anna Deavere Smith's impressionistic depiction of that turbulent moment in history requires one actor to evoke dozens of characters. So Profile Theatre brought back actor Chantal DeGroat, who left Portland for Seattle last year, to star in its three-night production of this cult hit. Profile Theatre, 1515 SW Morrison St., 503-242-0080, 7:30 pm. Starts April 15. $10-$18.

Io Island

Judas Priest

After Black Sabbath, there's no more important name in metal than Judas Priest. Not all the classic members are still around, but Rob Halford is, and given age, it seems likely this is the last time Priest will play in Portland. If that doesn't sell you on this show, what's your problem? Veterans Memorial Coliseum, 300 N Winning Way, 503-235-8771. 7 pm. $41-$91. All ages.
