Las Vegas Little Theatre rings in the new year with Rumors by Neil Simon Jan. 9-25. The comedy is set at a 10th anniversary party for the New York deputy mayor and his wife, where (spoiler alert) the first guests to arrive find the mayor with a bullet to the head. That flesh wound is where the fun begins in this farce, though, as the guests attempt to sort out what happened. LVLT.org.
Some of our city’s most recognizable art is the neon signage that lines our streets. It’s only right you get enlightened at Spectacular: A History of Las Vegas Neon at Clark County Library on Jan. 8. You’ll hear the stories behind the bulbs and learn the ways in which the Neon Museum is saving signs from destruction. LVCCLD.org.
THE WAY THEY PHIL
We trust the Las Vegas Philharmonic when it comes to classical music. They’ve selected Bulgarian violinist Bella Hristova to headline this season’s Rising Star Concert, the purpose of which is to “showcase the talents of an internationally rising star.” See Hristova with guest conductor Rei Hotoda on Jan. 10 at The Smith Center.

VENI VIDI DA VINCI
January 15 is your last chance to see Da Vinci: The Exhibition at the Venetian. More than 20 fine art studies are on display, in addition to 65 life-size invention replicas. You don’t know Leonardo until you’ve perused his works up close and personal. Venetian.com.
