Brave New Workshop ensemble member Tom Reed created and stars in this solo parody of the Netflix sci-fi horror series “Stranger Things.” Wielding minimal props (a flashlight, two rolls of Christmas lights) and accompanied by keyboardist Jon Pumper (BNW’s music director), Reed hilariously gets to the mock-scary heart of the show while making pointed social commentary. ‘Stranger-er Things: Netflix and Kill’: Playful and engaging, he, well, kills it. (10 p.m. Mon., 7 p.m. Wed., 5:30 p.m. Fri., 1 p.m. Sun. Aug. 13, Phoenix Theater, 2605 Hennepin Av. S., Mpls.)
