Vertigo


Initially dismissed as “farfetched nonsense” (The New Yorker) and “another Hitchcock-and-bull story” (Time magazine), Vertigo is now counted among the greatest films of all time. Set in San Francisco, the 1958 psychological thriller stars James Stewart as an acrophobic ex-detective who becomes obsessed with a mysterious blonde (Kim Novak) after rescuing her from the waters below the Golden Gate Bridge. $10, 7pm Monday, Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes, 1255 S.W. Loop 410, (210) 677-8500, drafthouse.com.

The Irish Curse

What’s all this “luck of the Irish” stuff when there’s a curse that warns “red nose, short hose” (aka big time boozers with tiny wankers). First produced in 2011 at Trinity, AtticRep revisits The Irish Curse: A Comedy About Guys with a Tiny Problem with a new vision. Chronicling a support group for under-endowed Irish-American men, the play picks up steam when a young member challenges their beliefs about the curse that plagues them. Directed by Roberto Prestigiacomo and Seth Larson, the comedy also tackles serious issues of masculinity and body image. $18-$28, 8pm Wednesday-Saturday, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, atticrep.org.
