Editor's Picks

1) All aboard

Get on board for some delightful and de-lovely entertainment as Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre presents the nautical musical Anything Goes starting April 3. Recently revived on Broadway, this lighthearted Cole Porter classic celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, and tap dances through May 11 at Beef & Boards.

An amusing story wrapped around one of the magical scores of native Hoosier Cole Porter, Anything Goes sends the age-old tale of boy-meets-girl out to sea aboard the ocean liner S.S. American. Young travelers fall in love at first sight, but the girl is already engaged! Throw in some disguised characters, blackmail and tap-dancing sailors, and it adds up to an upbeat production that’s the top!

Anything Goes is on stage for 40 performances through May 11 in the intimate space of Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre. Tickets range from $38.50 to $63.50 and include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, prepared in-house for each performance, and select beverages. Parking is always free.

2) Women power

See Eve Ensler's award winning play, The Vagina Monologues, at Indy Fringe Basile Theatre, 719 E. St. Clair St., Kokomo. It will be performed by deaf women of Indianapolis.

There are shows at 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday.

All proceeds will go to Indiana Deaf Unity Against Domestic Violence. Friday night's performance will be entirely in American Sign Language with no voice interpreter and Saturday night's performance will be voice interpreted.

3) Daredevil on stage

See Elizabeth Streb live on stage at Elliott Hall of Music on Purdue University's campus 8 p.m. tonight. Streb has been called a “danger-monger,” the Evel Knievel of dance. In Forces, this daredevil presents her biggest blockbuster yet. Streb’s nine “action engineers” court danger live onstage with acts of derring-do guaranteed to thrill audiences of any age.

For information about tickets, call 765-494-3933.
