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 okcciviccenter.com.

For a Good Time, Call ...

For a movie about phone sex, 'For a Good Time, Call ...' is surprisingly all heart.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
Bridesmaids was the shot across the bow, with HBO’s Girls the follow-up fusillade: Women can cuss, drink and drug with the best of ’em. In that spirit arrives For a Good Time, Call …, a comedy with the scenario of what happens when a pair of unlikely 20-somethings start a phone-sex service.

Compliance

Do as you’re told and watch ... if you can.


Thriller

Rod Lott
File Compliance under “stranger than fiction.” Although not a documentary, it is based on a true story, and one so utterly outrageous that many will refuse to believe it anyway.

It may call itself Just an OK Art Show, but Saturday’s event looks anything but “just” — not with work from eight artists (including photographs by Caitlin Lindsey pictured), free beer from Mustang Brewing Company and live music from The Dull Drums and Them Hounds. It all goes down from 9 p.m. to midnight at Lettering Express, 2130 W. Reno. Admission is $5. Call 235-8999 or visit letteringexpressok.com.

The Call

Because ‘Rescue 911’ was taken.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Watching The Call was fun, and I suspect it would be even if my 13-year-old daughter weren’t screaming from fright the entire time. It’s exactly the kind of preposterous nerve-jangler Hollywood pulls off pretty well, moving so fast that it hopes you don’t notice all the holes in the plot.
