Melody Sweets (pictured) and the cast of Absinthe give traditional circus acts such as juggling and stilt-walking a provocative facelift in Big Top Circus and Burlesque. The adult fun begins at midnight June 26 in the Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace. If you’ve ever wanted to see the sexy side of the circus, here’s your chance.


You have until June 27 to check out Allyn Stewart’s mixed media and digital collage exhibit, Un-Mapping the Landscape: New Works on Paper. The works explore the relationship between landscape, geography and becoming lost. See it at CSN’s Artspace Gallery, but make sure you pull up directions on Google Maps so you won’t get lost on the way.


Aside from writing for gripping crime dramas including Law & Order and The Wire, Eric Overmyer also writes plays. In Native Speech, he puts us in the shoes of an underground DJ living in a bleak world full of prostitutes and junkies. Your last chance to see it at Cockroach Theater is 2 p.m. June 28.


If you’re a fan of live music, art, theater and pretty much everything else covered in this section of the magazine, check out the Red Paintings at Beauty Bar at 9 p.m. June 29. “The orchestral art band” is known to go above and beyond in its performances, so expect costumes, dialogue and, of course, music in this affair.
