THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is the winner of five 2015 Tony® Awards including BEST PLAY, and hailed as “One of the most fully immersive works ever to wallop Broadway” by The New York Times. Fifteen-year-old Christopher has an extraordinary brain; he is exceptionally intelligent but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. When he falls under suspicion for killing his neighbor’s dog, he sets out to identify the true culprit, which leads to an earth-shattering discovery and a journey that will change his life forever.

Cleveland Stories Dinner Parties

Wed., March 29

With Cleveland Stories Dinner Party, a weekly series that pairs fine food with storytelling, the folks at the Music Box Supper Club hope to help raise awareness of the mission of the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. The club’s owners consider the Cleveland History Center to be “one of the most interesting museums in Cleveland” and “an unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about and support.” The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to “bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row,” as it’s put in a press release. Each week will feature a guest speaker and a custom Prix Fixe menu – a full three course meal for only $20. The weekly series will be free to attend. There will be no cover charge. Dinner will be served at 6 p.m., and the storytelling will start at 7 p.m. Tonight, Cleveland Indians Senior Vice President will share stories about the World Series. The featured three-course dinner for the evening includes popcorn bisque, brats and kraut, and a banana split. (Jeff Niesel)

Billy Crystal

Wed., March 29

A Tony and Emmy Award-winning comedian, actor, producer, writer and director, Billy Crystal returns to his standup roots for his current tour, which includes tonight's show at Playhouse Square’s State Theatre. Crystal became a household name after roles in films such as When Harry Met Sally, City Slickers and Analyze This. A nine-time host of the Academy Awards, he’s also an award-winning author. His memoirs Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going and Where the Hell Are My Keys? were New York Times best sellers. “This show is unique,” says Crystal in a press release. “There’s stand up, and ‘sit down’ which gives me great freedom to tell stories, show film clips and talk about my life and career and the world as I see it. It’s loose, unpredictable and intimate. The most fun I’ve had on stage in a long time.” The performance begins at 8, and tickets start at $64. (Niesel)

Daya/Alexx Mack

Wed., March 29, 7:30 p.m.

Pop singer Daya comes to town tonight in support of her full-length debut, last year's Sit Still, Look Pretty. The electronica-inspired title track espouses Daya's feminist principles but wraps up in bubblegum pop so infectious that even a chauvinist would like the music. Last year, pop singer Alexx Mack, who opens the show, followed up her critically-acclaimed debut EP with the single “Whatever I Want,” a mid-tempo tune that shows off her upper register vocals and sultry delivery. Like many of today's young pop stars, Mack proudly proclaims to be an "LGBT ally" and has supported equal rights at national Pride events. (Niesel) $20
