RALEIGH
Anoushka Shankar
N.C. State Campus—It's appropriate to discuss how beautiful Anoushka Shankar is in writing about her music, primarily because it's given her irrefutable sitar mastery the inside track. The only musician trained completely by her father, Ravi Shankar, Anoushka has gilded the same interest in Indian classical music that he created four decades ago, using her pedigree and her beauty to set the stage. A student of her instrument for 18 of her 25 years, she's risen to the expectations and is succeeding in relegating some of India's cultural buzz to its rich musical past. Tickets for the 8 p.m. show in Stewart Theater range from $32-$36 for the general public, $25.50-$28.75 for faculty and staff and $5 for students. —Grayson Currin

Menopause, the Musical
Progress Energy Center—You know what "the change" is, don't you? Menopause, the Musical looks at women who are about to experience, currently are experiencing, or have survived menopause through humor and laughter. Tonight's show at Fletcher Opera Theater starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $41. For more ticket information, call 834-4000 or visit www.menopausethemusical.com.—Iesha Brown

Sparrows
N.C. Museum of Art—Tom Cruise wants to run the company that Mary Pickford built, but will they be showing Cocktail 80 years from now? Pickford's Sparrows will be shown tonight with musical accompaniment by David Drazin, renowned silent film pianist (and brother of museum film curator and Indy contributor Laura Boyes). —David Fellerath
