Its anniversary time! One hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Darwin shifted the cosmic order with his book On the Origin of the Species. Mildreds Umbrella Theater Company is marking that gigantic scientific leap of the imagination with the upcoming production of The Third Side, a new play about a professor who finds himself in the soup when he dares to question Darwin. Todays The Third Side Launch Party doesnt include a performance, but you can meet the shows cast and crew. Its all happening at the very cool midtown Khons, and according to Jennifer Decker, artistic director of Mildreds Umbrella, there will be nibbles, happy-hour drink prices and door prizes including art, goods and services and, of course, tickets to the play. 5 p.m. 2808 Milam.
