Amphibian Stage (120 S Main St, 817-923-3012) is currently producing a play that hasn’t been staged since its 2019 world premiere in New York City. Leegrid Stevens’ Spaceman follows a female astronaut’s solo mission to Mars after her husband’s earlier, tragic attempt to reach the same destination. Having opened in February, the final shows are 8pm today thru Sat and 2pm Sun. The ticket price range is $15-60 on AmphibianStage.com, but with the troupe’s new “tiered ticket pricing model” — to help make theater more accessible for any budget — you get to decide what to pay.

The final performances of Spaceman at Amphibian are Thu-Sun.
