A five-time Tony Award-winning musical set in Los Angeles, Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew and Sherrie, two kids who chase their dreams in the big city and fall in love. You won’t want to miss the big hair and stellar score that features songs by '80s rockers such as Journey, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, Pat Benatar and Whitesnake. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Palace Theatre and performances are slated for tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $10. (Cecily Rus)

The folks at the Museum of Contemporary Art hope people overcome their fears at tonight's Phobic Drawing Class.

"I'm a rebel," says French Vogue edtor Carine Roitfeld, the subject of the documentary Mademoiselle C. The film chronicles Roitfeld's move from Paris to New York where she starts her own magazine. Predictably enough, the movie includes interviews with all the most of famous fashion models and a groovy soundtrack by the French indie pop band Shoes. Ultimately, though, the movie lacks a clear narrative and comes off more like a long-form music video. It makes its Cleveland premiere tonight at 7 at the Cleveland Museum of Art and screens again at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)

Something Dada, Northeast Ohio’s Premiere Improvisational Comedy Company, performs this evening at Beck Center for the Arts in Lakewood. If you thought Whose Line Is it Anyway was a hoot-and-a-half, you’ll go gaga for dada and their brand of fast-paced, in-your-face humor stylings, prompted entirely by audience suggestion. (It’s not like they practice everything and then pull suggestions out of a hat. Take that, Drew Carey.) Tickets are $12 and Beck has beer and candy on site. It’s a nice alternative to a weekend night at the movies. The fun starts at 8 p.m. Prepare to bust, as they say, a gut. (Allard)

Spring training is still weeks away, but it's not too early to starting thinking about the Cleveland Indians. Now that the Detroit Tigers don't look so formidable, the Indians might have a good shot at winning their division this year. Today and tomorrow at Progressive Field, the Indians host Tribe Fest, an event that gives fans the opportunity to meet and greet players. Players such as Michael Brantley, Carlos Santana, Yan Gomes, Mike Aviles, Danny Salazar, David Murphy, Corey Kluber and Bryan Shaw will be on hand. Tickets are $10 and today's sessions run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 8 p.m. Tomorrow's session takes place from noon to 6 p.m. (Niesel)

Sarah Trigg comes to the Museum of Contemporary Art today to talk about her new book Studio Life, a collection of photographs depicting a hundred different visits with various artists around the United States as they share their objects and habits relating to their creative process. The six categories she documents are mascots, collected objects, rituals, makeshift tools, residue, and habitats. Each artist offers his or her own take on the categories, resulting in a fascinating, larger perspective of how they work. Many of the artists featured in the book have shown their work at MOCA before, including the artist behind current exhibition I Work From Home, Michelle Grabner. The event is free and begins at 1 p.m. (Trenholme).
