Austin’s collaborative theater group the Rude Mechs—the same troupe behind the stage adaptation of Greil Marcus’ Lipstick Traces—head deep into Tennessee Williams/drama dweeb territory with their fourth-wall-bustin’ The Method Gun, a play inspired by the (fictional) acting coach Stella Burden. Burden, the story goes, pioneered “The Approach”—“the most dangerous acting technique in the world,” and one that managed to sucker in enough eager thespians for them to create a nine-years-in-the-making performance of A Streetcar Named Desire. The Method Gun tells those actors’ story, with the Rude Mechs playing both themselves and Burden’s students. (Also, “The Approach”? Snap, Lee Strasberg!) ERIK HENRIKSEN
