GO

Marvel Universe Live Movies are great, but how can you top a live-action arena experience with pyrotechnics, stunts and motorcycles where your favorite superheroes—Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Spider-Man and Wolverine battling Loki, Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and the Red Skull—actually look like they do in the comics? April 23-26, times vary, $20-$125, Thomas & Mack Center.

Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella The musical writing duo’s telling of the classic fairy tale has graced the small screen (remember that 1997 Brandy/Whitney special?) and theater stages around the globe, but was produced on Broadway for the first time in 2013. The Tony winner’s national tour rolls through the Smith Center starting Tuesday. April 28-May 3, 7:30 p.m.; May 2-3, 2 p.m., $39-$139.

LAUGH

Comedy Dynamics Presents Bill Hicks The best comedians make you laugh and think at the same time—like the acerbic, vice-embracing Bill Hicks, whose dark satire and thoughtful skewering of the status quo preceded The Daily Show and its alumni. Comedy Dynamics pays tribute to the deceased raconteur with this theatrical program, which includes his 1992 Relentless concert film plus supplemental footage. April 27, 8 p.m., various local theaters.

HEAR

OK Go If you haven’t seen the video for the group’s funky single “I Won’t Let You Down”—filmed all in one take by a drone—drop everything you’re doing and watch it. Now. Then catch the foursome in the flesh on the tail end of its confetti-filled tour. With Kitten, April 28, 9 p.m., $21-$28, Brooklyn Bowl.

EAT

Indian Food and Cultural Festival Been meaning to try some fresh Indian joints? Do it all at once when 10 local spots like Mint Indian Bistro, Origin India and the new Urban Turban come together in one place, backed by traditional music, dance and more. Think of it as the ultimate buffet, served à la carte. April 25, 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m, $5 (kids 12 & under free), Clark County Government Center Amphitheater.

Forgione Family Dinner It’s a family thing at Tivoli Village pub Made L.V. as Buddy V’s executive chef Bryan Forgione and his father, “the godfather of American cuisine” Larry Forgione, team up for a four-course dinner centered around farm-fresh, seasonal ingredients. April 29, 6:30 p.m., $39. Reservations at 702-722-2000.
