1. "Woodward & Bernstein: Power, The Press, and The Presidency"
8 p.m. March 20. $55-$110. The Paramount Theatre, 713 Congress Ave. austintheatre.org.
You'd be hard-pressed to find journalists who have had more of an impact on American history than Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. They are best known for having broken the Watergate story that resulted in President Richard Nixon's resignation. Last year, Woodward also wrote a revealing book about the early presidency of Donald Trump. Now, listen to them come together at a landmark speaking event that will point out parallels from our past and provide insights for our future.

4. "Notes from the Field" at Zach Theatre
7:30 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday through March 31. $25-$78. 202 S. Lamar Blvd. zachtheatre.org.
Tony and Pulitzer Prize nominee Anna Deavere Smith wrote and starred in what might be her most poignant project yet, and now Zach Theatre takes it on for a production of its own. "Notes From the Field" brings to life the real-life accounts of people caught in America’s school-to-prison pipeline as they navigate inequities in their communities. The play shines a light on a lost generation of America's young people.
