5 picks for art in Las Vegas this week

Lily Tomlin

The show’s official name is “An Afternoon of Classic Lily Tomlin.” As one of Tomlin’s “Laugh-In” characters, Edith Ann, would say, “And that’s the truth.” After all, the legendary performer has a half-century of peerless comedy — and the rueful truths of existence — to inspire her return to The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall at 2 p.m. Saturday. For tickets ($29-$85), visit thesmithcenter.com.

Henderson Symphony

Kicking off its “Storytellers Season,” the Henderson Symphony Orchestra makes a musical visit to South America with “Latin Nights,” featuring the music of (among others) Heitor Villa Lobos and Astor Piazzolla. The free concert begins at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Henderson Pavilion, 200 S. Green Valley Parkway; for details, visit hendersonsymphony.org.

‘Nude Survey 6’

More than three dozen Las Vegas- and Los Angeles-based artists explore the human form in “Nude Survey 6.” Presented by Sin City Gallery and L.A.-based Eric Minh Swenson, the group show opens with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday in New Orleans Square, 900 Karen Ave., Suite A212, and continues from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays to Fridays and 1 to 6 p.m. weekends through Oct. 21.

‘Mimosas and Mozart’

Notes With a Purpose revives “Mimosas and Mozart,” mixing classical music performed by eight Las Vegas- and New York-based musicians with a gourmet brunch at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the JW Marriott. Tickets ($125-$1,200) benefit Notes With a Purpose’s musical outreach programs; visit noteswithapurpose.org for details.


In this darkly comedic Pulitzer Prize finalist, a friendly backyard barbecue — between a suburban couple and their new neighbors — spirals downward into drunkenness and danger. Lisa D’Amour’s “Detroit” launches Las Vegas Little Theatre’s Black Box season at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at 3920 Schiff Drive. Performances continue at 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through Oct. 1; tickets ($10-$15) are available at lvlt.org.
