1. Team StarKid is going on The Space Tour; you'll remember them from A Very Potter Musical, as well as from their castmember Darren Criss, who made it big on Glee. You also may have seen their sold-out run of Starship in February. Though based in Chicago, they won't start here, but expect them back November 8.
2. Chris Jones liked Carrie Fisher's show Wishful Drinking a lot; "Fisher's personal stories speak to greater societal and existential truths," he wrote. Justin Kaufmann, who watched the HBO special, and thought the exact opposite. Maybe there's something about seeing her in the flesh?
