‘Tuna Does Vegas’
An oddball right-wing radio host and his wife visit Vegas to renew their wedding vows, prompting everyone else in Texas’ third-smallest town to come along, in this romp from the funny folks who brought you “Greater Tuna.” Two actors play all the characters — from Tuna Texans to showgirls — when “Tuna Does Vegas” opens at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Las Vegas Little Theatre, 3920 Schiff Drive. Performances continue through May 22. For tickets ($20-$25), call 702-362-7996 or visit www.LVLT.org.
Explore “Art Through the Ages” at May’s First Friday celebration, which takes place from 5 to 11 p.m. in the downtown arts district. In addition to five costumed artists painting in the style of Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo and more, members of Art Beyond the Paintbrush — featuring weavers, scribes, carvers and quilters — will interact with the crowd.
