Nevada Conservatory Theatre presents Nevada, Oct. 10-19 at Judy Bayley Theatre. Described as a “memory play,” the plot surrounds a man, his best friend and girlfriend lamenting the end of their time together. Kind of like 500 Days of Summer, with more central characters and less of the Smiths. UNLV.edu/NCT.
Ever heard the phrase “hell is other people?” It stems from Jean-Paul Sartre’s existential play No Exit, wherein three characters are damned to an afterlife with only each other. Bring some friends you can stand for a couple of hours and see it staged at Art Square Theatre on select dates through Oct. 26. CockroachTheatre.com.
AN ICON ONSTAGE
Don Rickles made his Las Vegas debut in 1959 at a lounge show in the Sahara. Now 88, his zingers still sizzle like a steak served at midnight. But you don’t have to stay up that late to see him. “Mr. Warmth” performs at 8 p.m. Oct. 11-12 at the Orleans Showroom. Go before his appearances become more rare. OrleansCasino.com.
SEX AND SIN CITY
