This week is your last chance to see “Really Really” at Signature Theatre, and it’s also a good time to get tickets for upcoming shows, including Synetic’s “The Taming of the Shrew.”

Last chance

Chesapeake Shakespeare Company’s The Merchant of Venicecloses Saturday at Oliver’s Carriage House.

The Post’s Peter Marks writes that Astro Boy and the God of Comics is a “breathtakingly imaginative, eye-delighting performance piece.” The show closes Sunday at Studio Theatre.

Petrushkacloses Sunday at the Lansburgh Theatre. Marks calls the show “a whimsical and vigorous shake-up of dramatic paints and music, serving both mood and story. What ‘Fantasia’ is to cartoons, Basil Twist seems to be to animation in three dimensions.”

Really Really,” which Marks says “sucks you in with its brio and caustic wit and holds you with its teasingly clever double-edged plot,” closes Sunday at Signature Theatre.
