Casting Gender Roles
Once upon a time, men played the roles of women in theater. Jeffrey Hatcher’s Compleat Female Stage Beauty explores the
upsets caused when females first claimed the stage. Imagine if Anchorman were set in the 17th century, and then subtract some of the corduroy suits and dirty jokes. April 18-20, 25-27 at Nicholas J. Horn Theatre. CSN.edu.
New Mr. Las Vegas Bids Adieu
Shortly after George Wallace celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his Flamingo residency, he announced he’s calling it quits by the end of the month. (Though, earlier in April he won a $1.3 million lawsuit against Bellagio—which probably makes retirement sound extra nice.) Catch him while he still be thinkin’, April 22-26. FlamingoLasVegas.com.
Mustaches and Music Stashes
Whether you frequent them ironically or earnestly, it’s time to celebrate brick-and-mortar music shops on Record Store Day on April 19. Zia Records’ two Las Vegas locations commemorate the occasion with limited releases, live performances and the unveiling of the locally based You Heard Us Back When compilation. ZiaRecords.com.
Poetry to the People
Perhaps you’ve been too wrapped up with “Vegaschella” to notice that April is National Poetry Month. Remedy that by attending Creativity and the Word at Whitney Library on April 22. Featured poet Lee Mallory will read his original works and sign copies of his collection, Now and Then, for “mature audiences only.” LVCCLD.org.
