  • The merman tank at Stonewall
This is the last weekend to catch Christian Kelty’s latest immersive theater project taking place in a bar, The Little Merman From the Black Lagoon. The farce borrows from 1950s sci-fi as a group of scientists travel the Amazon in search of a Creature From the Black Lagoon knockoff, Gill-Man. Instead, they find Ethyl the Merman and friends. The whole thing takes place in Stonewall’s upstairs patio bar. You know, the one with the merman tank.

7:30 p.m. Thursday, 6:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 8:30 p.m. Monday; Stonewall Bar Orlando, 741 W. Church St.; $10-$25;
