Your 5 best bets for arts and culture in the week ahead

‘Gentleman’s Guide’

All-singing, all-dancing, all-slaying … that’s the Tony-winning formula followed by the merrily murderous musical “A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love & Murder,” about a young Brit who targets the eight aristocratic relatives standing between him and his inheritance. But time’s running out to catch the bloody good fun; performances continue at 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall. For tickets ($29-$139), call (702) 749-2000 or visit www.thesmithcenter.com.

‘Sordid Lives’

A black comedy about white trash — that’s Del Shores’ “Sordid Lives.” True to its title, “Sordid Lives” reveals the skeletons that fall out of the closet following a small-town Texas matriarch’s scandalous demise. “Sordid Lives” plays at the Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave., through March 26, with performances at 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and at 5 p.m. March 20. For tickets ($20), call 702-732-7225 or visit www.onyxtheatre.com.

‘subUrbia’

You might know Eric Bogosian from TV’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” but he’s also an award-winning playwright whose scathing 1994 “subUrbia” — about aimless 20-somethings stuck in their New Jersey hometown who reunite with a former classmate who’s now a successful musician. Nevada Conservatory Theatre’s production continues at 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday in UNLV’s Black Box Theatre, located inside the Alta Ham Fine Arts building; for tickets ($16.50), call 702-895-2787 or click on www.unlv.edu/pac.

‘Speed of Darkness’

A successful businessman finds his American Dream imperiled by the arrival of a now-homeless Vietnam War buddy determined to force his pal to come clean about their past in “The Speed of Darkness.” This drama by the late Steve Tesich (who also wrote “Breaking Away’s” Oscar-winning screenplay) opens a three-weekend run at 8 p.m. Friday in the Fischer Black Box at Las Vegas Little Theatre, 3920 Schiff Drive; performances continue at 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays through March 27. For tickets ($14-$15), call 702- 362-7996 or visit www.LVLT.org.

Polish Baltic Philharmonic

It’s all Tchaikovsky, all the time — at least when the Polish Baltic Philharmonic visits UNLV’s Artemus Ham Hall at 8 p.m. March 18 for a Charles Vanda Master Series Concert. Prize-winning pianist Marcin Koziak will join the orchestra for Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor; Symphony No. 5 in E minor and the “Romeo and Juliet” Fantasy Overture round out the program. For tickets ($25-$75), call 702-895-2787 or click on www.unlv.edu/pac.
