Genesis 2.0

Thu., Feb. 21

Genesis 2.0 focuses on the harsh and dangerous life of so-called "mammoth hunters" who live and work in the far north of Siberia. The film captures the gold-rush fever that exists in the market for mammoth remains, because prices for this "white gold" have never been so high. Sometimes the hunters even find an almost completely preserved mammoth carcass with fur, liquid blood and muscle. The movie shows tonight at 7 at the Cedar Lee Theatre as part of the Reel Science Series. Roberta Muehlheim, assistant curator in the vertebrate zoology department at the Natural History Museum, will host the screening. Tickets cost $9.75. (Niesel)

Cavs vs. Phoenix Suns

Thu., Feb. 21

The Phoenix Suns are proof that first-round draft picks don't guarantee success. The Suns have plenty of young, talented players but continue to be one of the league's worst teams. Even though the Cavs lost a few key players before the trade deadline, they still stand a good chance tonight against the Suns, who are led by sharp shooting guard Devin Booker and rookie center Deandre Ayton. The game begins at 7 at the Q. Consult the Cavs website for ticket prices. (Niesel)

Beethoven’s Pastoral

Thu., Feb. 21

Tonight's Cleveland Orchestra concert that takes place at 7:30 at Severance Hall features two symphonies inspired by the countryside and nature. Beethoven's "Pastoral," features rolling thunder, a lively country dance and the sound of a shepherd's pipes. Scotland's rugged beauty inspired Mendelssohn's "Scottish" symphony, a piece characterized by moody, atmospheric melodies. Herbert Blomsted conducts, and Timothy Cutler, a Cleveland Institute of Music professor of music theory, gives the pre-concert talk an hour before the concert. Performances continue through Saturday. Check the orchestra website for more info. (Niesel)

Bobby Collins

Thu., Feb. 21

Bobby Collins was destined to be a comedian from the start — his father named him after his favorite comedian Bob Hope, and he's been telling jokes ever since. A New York native, Collins left a very prestigious position as vice president of Calvin Klein to pursue his dream of becoming a comedian. He quickly catapulted to fame and has even opened for big-name acts such as Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld. Collins' very heavy New York accent shines through as he tells jokes about everyday life. He performs tonight at 7:30 and 10 at Hilarities and has shows scheduled through Saturday. Tickets start at $25. (Niesel)

The Importance of Being Earnest

Thu., Feb. 21 and Thu., Feb. 28

The CSU Department of Theatre & Dance offers its take on Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, "a trivial comedy for serious people." The play uses humor to address issues of identity and relationships and employs mistaken identities, plot twists and "madcap action." Tonight's performance takes place at 7:30 at the Outcalt Theatre. Performances continue through March 3. Tickets start at $15. (Niesel)
