Let’s guess — your sign is Leo
Clearly, the Hidden Door must be doing something right. Now in it’s 23rd year, the Leo Party and Miss Leo Contest still thrives. We’re not sure if it’s because it benefits the Daire Center and appeals to everyone’s sense of giving, or just the fact that the Door lives up to its “friendliest bar in town” reputation. Either way, it’s all good.

DEETS: Hidden Door, 5025 Bowser Road. 8 p.m.

Musical theater is getting snarky
In Uptown Players’ Forbidden Broadway, Gerard Alessandrini has written a revue that pokes fun at our favorite musicals. We’d normally deem this sacrilege, if it didn’t sound so funny. Rent, Les Misérables, Fiddler on the Roof all get a sassy redux in this new show directed by B.J. Cleveland.

DEETS: Kalita Humphreys Theater, 3636 Turtle Creek Blvd.2 p.m. $30–$40.
