Wednesday 08 – Cheesy as its faux-Latin music might seem now, Evita was a big hit when it debuted on stage in 1978, as Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s musical biography of Eva Perón caught a wave of feminism and show business bleeding into politics.

Thursday 09 – If you’re attending this year’s Taste of Northeast, you’ll have to pick through the participating chain eateries like Applebee’s, Abuelo’s, and Rockfish to get to the good stuff.

Tickets are $25-30. Call 817-283-3406.
Friday 10 – Now, whenever we see The Crucible being staged, we think about that Saturday Night Live sketch when a bunch of high-schoolers starring in the play head to an awkward wrap party.
