Set back within the now hip Manor Road area you will find the The Vortex Repertory Company, a longtime performing arts space which is one of the original East Austin homes for musicals, comedies, and burlesque-like performances. The arts listings at The Vortex are eccentric and every performance is enhanced by the small but dramatic theater space and the tightly-knit yet spacious auditorium inside.

You will be thoroughly entertained with shows like the Pie and Ear ShowThe Cleavage Chronicles Presents..Everybody Loves Boobs, and Naked Girls Reading Austin – Dirty Deeds!   You should check the calendar before going to The Vortex, and buy tickets in advance if you can. You never know what you might be getting into but it’s bound to be entertaining.

You can gather in the adjacent and low-lit Butterfly Bar, or out on the twinkling patio for drinks (beer and wine) and snacks (cheese plates, hummus, and other small bites) before the show. Spend a weekend night getting sucked into the live entertainment offered at The Vortex.
