From hail to hobos, having something on your roof is rarely a good thing. Two exceptions: Santa’s reindeer and Jewish milkmen. You’re in luck on the latter, because Fiddler on the Roof stages the first of eight shows at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. The Tony-winning classic once was Broadway’s longest-running musical. Tickets are $20-$50. Call 297-2264 or visit

Let’s be ‘Frank’

National Theatre Live’s ‘Frankenstein’ is alive for two days.

If you love Sherlock like I love Sherlock, you might be interested in this filmed play showing tonight and tonight only: Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein.

To steal all the details from our own Gazette:

“It’s alive! It’s alive! National Theatre Live, to be exact, which presents the monster hit Frankenstein on theater screens at 7 p.m. tonight and tomorrow only at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, Cinemark Tinseltown USA and Norman’s Hollywood Spotlight 14. Directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours), this whacked-out adaptation stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Dark Shadows’ Jonny Lee Miller. Visit”

It’s my understanding at the two switch roles midway through the play, which sounds like Something to See, provided you’re not seeing anything at deadCENTER, that is. —Rod Lott

Seventy-six trombones led the big parade, with 110 cornets close at hand.

The musical runs 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday, with the run ending June 24. Tickets are $10-$20. Call 974-3375 or visit

Oklahoma native Pearl Mesta (née Skirvin) was the D.C. socialite of the ’50s — so much so that Irving Berlin based the musical Call Me Madam on her. With five performances scheduled between today and Saturday, Lyric Theatre stages the production on “The Hostess with the Mostes’” at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. Tickets are $33- $74. Call 297-2264 or visit
