Green thumbs beware
When a good idea turns into a blood-craving monster plant — well, lives get turned around. WaterTower Theatre premieres the fun and frantic Little Shop of Horrors, where Seymour, a lowly florist, tries to turn his fortune around and ends up with a big mess. Alan Menken and Howard Ashman’s songs only add to the wacky flair of it all.
DEETS: WTT, 15650 Addison Road, Addison. Through July 31.
Who are those masked men?
The Dallas Eagle knows how to throw a bash. As part of Leather Pride Week (who knew?), the club hosts Masquerade: A Night of Men, Leather, Fantasy and Intrigue. OK, you got us — we’re intrigued. The leather and fetish ball assures no Cinderellas on hand. Gear and masks are encouraged. Just don’t be that guy without one.
DEETS: Dallas Eagle, 5740 Maple Ave.

Katy Perry is either brilliant or ballsy. Her radio hits will carry her show into party mode, but having the dynamic Robyn as an opener could put Perry into a corner. She’ll likely come out swinging. The audience definitely wins this night.
DEETS: Verizon Theatre, 1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie. 7:30 p.m.
