THE LITTLE PRINCE
PLAYMAKERS REPERTORY COMPANY—An Aviator crashes his plane in the Sahara and is approached by a young boy. So begins the cherished tale The Little Prince, created by French writer, pilot and visionary Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in 1943. Tonight, Playmakers Rep opens their production of The Little Prince in Paul Green Theatre. For more info, visit www.playmakersrep.org or call 962-PLAY. —Megan Stein
SUNDOWNER, CHUCK RAGAN
CAT'S CRADLE—Sundowner is the quieter-songs outlet of Lawrence Arms member Chris McCaughan. His ragged baritone recalls Billy Bragg, with a similar folk-punk shuffle brightened by ringing acoustic melodies. Hot Water Music's Chuck Ragan moves further afield, mining a Texas country-rock twang appropriate to his gravelly growl and down-and-out narratives. Tickets are $10 for an 8:30 p.m. start. —Chris Parker
"WHAT IS CHOICE?"
QUAIL RIDGE BOOKS & MUSIC—Instead of arguing and name calling, contributors to the book Choice: True Stories of Birth, Contraception, Infertility, Adoption, Single Parenthood and Abortion try to explain what it is like to make a reproductive choice. The editor of the collection and one of the writers will discuss and sign copies at 7 p.m. Call 828-1588 or visit quailridgebooks.booksense.com. —Ashley Roberts
