Editor's picks

1) Cats, Cats everywhere

The seven-time Tony Award winning Cats pounces onto the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre stage as the first musical in its 2014 Season.

Set in an alley behind a theatre in France, Cats brings audiences into the poetry of T. S. Eliot, whose “Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats” inspired the musical about frolicking felines gathering for the Jellicle Ball.

Featuring spectacular dancing, tumbling and acrobatics, amazing makeup and colorful costumes, Cats is an unforgettable experience in the intimate atmosphere of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre – where they are close enough to touch! Not just on stage. The frisky creatures are leaping onto and off of the stage, crawling through the aisles, and appearing all around, even overhead!

Cats is on stage for 59 performances through March 30. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet. Parking is always free.

For reservations, call the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre Box Office at 317.872.9664 anytime between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays.

2) Fiddling and step dancing

The April Verch Band comes to the Wells Center in downtown Lafayette at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

Canada's Ottawa Valley meets Old-Time Appalachia : crack fiddling, electric step dancing, and sweet singing. Tickets are available from Indiana Fiddler's Gather at 765-742-1419 fiddlers@dcwi.com or get them at Tippecanoe Arts Federation during the week. Only $15 in advance and $22 at the door.

3) Wheel of Men

WZPL Presents: Smiley's Wheel of Men - Valentines Day Imagine tonight at The Vogue, 6259 North College Ave., Indianapolis.

It's a huge wheel full of single men. Ladies, you step up, spin the wheel and then get a five minute date with the man the wheel lands on!

If it's not love at first sight, don't worry, because you're in a bar full of singles! Men, sign up to get on the wheel at WheelofMen.com. The fun starts at 8 p.m. and the wheel will spin until 10 p.m. After that, 16 Candles takes the stage with some fun 80s covers.

There's no cover 8 to 10 p.m. It's $5 after 10 p.m.
