Clinton St., prior to that day’s Taste of Syracuse activities. A 5K run begins at 9 a.m., with a 40-foot caterpillar crawl for children ages 5 and younger at 9:45 a.m., and a 3K fun run-fitness walk at 10 a.m. Registration fees are $30 for one person, $25 for the next family member after initial registration, and free for the caterpillar crawl. Proceeds from the run will benefit the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. Contact email@example.com.
The intuitive counselor and medium will make her only upstate appearance during her 2010 “Share the Spirit” tour at the Mulroy Civic Center’s Carrier Theater, 800 S. State St., on Thursday, June 3, 7 p.m. A Thursday-morning fixture on WYYY-FM 94.5 (Y94)’s dawn-patrol slot with Kathy Rowe, Nan O’Brien’s three-hour nighttime show is billed as “an exciting journey of exploring spirituality,” providing a jam-packed evening of motivational and inspirational messages. Tickets are $65, available at the door. For information, call 435-2121.
Gays and straights cohabitate and commiserate in Rarely Done’s musical FalsettosOut and about: From left, Peter Irwin, Katie Lemos Brown, Nick Godzak and Josh Mele in the Rarely Done-ArtRage presentation of Falsettos.
The Tony Award-winning musical Falsettos isn’t mounted very much in this neck of the woods, maybe because it’s so damn hard to produce and cast. Think of it: A handful of well-defined Jewish characters explode into continuous song for close to three hours, on a bare-bones set consisting of, at times, some chairs, a chessboard and a few carrots. Oh yeah, this pop opera-ish cabaret filled with emotional complexities, witty wordplays and double entendres also concerns love and death in the gay ’90s. Not the 1890s, but the 1990s, when the show first hit Broadway in 1992, and not gay as in happy, either.
Nothing says Easter weekend quite like a hopping holiday of 1980-vintage action flicks, as the Brew and View 35mm film series continues on Saturday, April 3, 7 p.m., at Eastwood’s Palace Theatre, 2384 James St. The trifecta includes 1984’s Red Dawn (pictured, left), a yahoo-oriented doomsday yarn with Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen and other Brat Pack-era performers yelling “Wolverines!”; Arnold Schwarzenegger uttering the catch phrase “I’ll be back” in his 1984 breakout star vehicle The Terminator (pictured, above); and the 1988 Indonesian exploitation clone Lady Terminator with Barbara Anne Constable in the title role amid acres of sex and violence. Admission is $10, with $2 knocked off if you come dressed as a cyborg. For information, call 436-4723.
If this weekend’s Eastertime family reunions put you in the mood to see even more clowns, then check out this annual sawdust spectacle at the New York State Fairgrounds’ Coca-Cola Coliseum. Not only will you see greasepainted slapstick-oriented goofballs like the three stooges pictured here, there will also be the usual mix of high-wire acts, pachyderms and much more, plus kids can always laugh at the Shriners’ fezzes. Showtimes are Friday, April 2, and Saturday, April 3, 10 a.m., 2:30 and 7 p.m. Advance ducats are $10, and $13 at the gate, with the 10 a.m. Good Friday show charging $9. Call 478-0277 for information.
The Massachusetts outfit makes a rockin’ stopover at the Westcott Theater, 524 Westcott St., on Wednesday, March 31, 9 p.m. The band is touring in support of their 2009 Vanguard LP The Bear. Toronto-born singer Serena Ryder serves as the evening’s opener. Tickets are $13. For details, call 299-8886.
Salt City Center for the Performing Arts brings back its signature production for a two-day run on Friday, April 2, and Saturday, April 3, 8 p.m., at the Mulroy Civic Center’s Crouse-Hinds Concert Theater, 411 Montgomery St. Longtime lead Bob Brown (pictured) is reportedly hanging up his robe for good after Friday’s show (then again, how many Rolling Stones farewell tours have transpired?), which means we’ll likely never get another chance to run archive photos like this. Newcomer Tallon Larham will handle the role on Saturday, and somewhere in a heavenly balcony Joe Lotito will be guiding both shows, too. Tickets run $21, $26 and $31. For information, call 435-2121.
