If Office Space’s Michael Bolton thought his name was rough, he oughta meet the real Tony Montana. You can too, when the former Chicago mobster and current local signs copies of his organized crime-filled memoir, The Real Tony Montana, at the Mob Museum on July 26. TheMobMuseum.org.
EDIFICATION BY AUDIO
We all occasionally reference Citizen Kane to seem culturally literate, don’t we, rosebud? To further flex your knowledge, we suggest Orson Welles’ radio theater, Dracula, presented July 29 at the Sci-Fi Center. The program was originally broadcast on Welles’ Mercury Theatre on the Air in 1938. Facebook.com/TheSciFiCenterVegas.
THE AIRING OF GENIUSES
You might find the next Welles at the seventh annual Las Vegas Film Festival. Held July 30-August 3 at Inspire Theatre, the showcase includes homegrown and international entries tackling topics from immigrants’ feelings of isolation to Brony fandom. Stay late to enjoy the swanky after-parties. LVFF.com.
THE HILLS ARE LIVE
Something was missing from NBC’s 2013 live presentation of The Sound of Music … you. So join Las Vegas Little Theatre in sing-along screenings of the 1965 movie musical August 1-10. Boo the Nazis, belt the lyrics and participate in what The New Yorker described as the film “reborn as a Dadist art happening.” LVLT.org.
