A View From the Bridge at Las Vegas Little Theater
Immigration, forbidden love, jealousy and honor—Arthur Miller’s play might have premiered more than 60 years ago, but its themes are as salient as ever. Presented by Las Vegas Little Theatre and directed by local stage sensation Walter Niejadlik, A View From the Bridge tells the story of Italian-American stevedore and family man Eddie Carbone (Glenn Heath). He and his wife Beatrice (Gillen Brey) are raising their lovely niece Catherine (Anastasia Koulich). When two cousins, Rodolpho and Marco (Michael Blair and Alex Bassett), illegally immigrate from Italy, the family is proud to host them.
When the teenage Catherine falls for Rodolpho, Uncle Eddie bristles and is torn between the old and new ways of solving the problem: take matters into his own hands or turn his family members into the authorities. We won’t tell you what Eddie decides, but The New York Times described the play’s 2015 revival as “what Greek tragedy once felt like, when people went to the theater in search of catharsis.” March 9-25, Days & times vary, $21-$24. –C.

50 Years of Preserving History at Clark County Museum
Let’s get meta: What is the history of history? After a half century of exhibiting local happenings, the Clark County Museum is showcasing itself with the new exhibit, 50 Years of Preserving History: Celebrating the Golden Anniversary of the Clark County Museum. In many ways, the story of the museum is the story of ourselves. It sits on 30 acres and includes a timeline of Southern Nevada from antiquity through today. It also contains historic buildings from Las Vegas, Boulder City, Henderson and Goldfield.
The actual exhibit will feature a look back on previous ones. Highlights include: Paiute-Shoshone baskets and Pueblo pottery; the first object entered into the museum register (a clay pipe); Nevada minerals (amethystine and calcite); and the original logo (a 1969 tribute to mining). Daily, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., $2, 1830 S. Boulder Highway. –C. Moon Reed

PVRIS at House of Blues
Since forming in 2012 as a metalcore outfit, this Massachusetts three-piece has been named Alternative Press’ best breakthrough band of 2015, toured with Bring Me the Horizon and Fall Out Boy and signed to Rise Records (At the Drive-In, Hot Water Music). And in those six years, PVRIS has swapped its heavy, post-hardcore sound for something more accessible (give their cover of Sia’s “Chandelier” a spin). Synthesizers, electronic beats, dream-pop melodies and swelling guitar lines provide the backbone for singer Lynn Gunn, whose vocal stylings evoke comparisons to Evanescence’s Amy Lee and Paramore’s Hayley Williams.
And don’t sleep on opener Flint Eastwood. The Detroit project pairs perfectly with PVRIS’ brooding electronic rock. Mixing a cinematic, Spaghetti Western aesthetic with synthed-out beats and powerful vocals, the sibling duo should find overnight devotees among fans of electro-tinged groups like Phantogram and Christine and the Queens. You’ll want to get there early. March 10, 7 p.m., With Birthday, $26. –Leslie Ventura
