Discovering who you are sometimes means putting your life — and career — on hold. That’s what happens to Mary Christopher after her father’s death in River City, a play by Diana Grisanti. A photograph makes it clear that there’s plenty Mary doesn’t know about her troubled dad. It’s enough for her to relocate to Louisville so she can find out more. (Perry Tannenbaum) Pay what you can, Aug. 28; $17 for previews Aug. 29-30; $31 for other shows.

This twin bill is advertised as a battle between two megarappers on seemingly opposite trajectories — Weezy’s struggling to regain his unfuckwithable Tha Carter III form; since 2009, it’s Drizzy who’s been virtually flawless. But the goose and gander pairing is a good one, Wayne adding some needed volatility to Drake’s mirrored sheen. The two superstars trade sets, and the audience, via a downloadable app, picks the victor. In this clash of pop-rap titans, we all win. (Patrick Wall) $35-$125.50
