‘Indecent’

A drama behind the drama, this play recounts the real-life story of Sholem Asch’s controversial play “God of Vengeance” and the Yiddish actors attempting to bring it to stage in the early 20th century. Theater and art lovers in this century can relate, Feb 28-March 31. Tickets start at $20. centerstage.org

Saved by the 90s: ‘Jagged Little Pill’

Isn’t it ironic that those grunge years of questionable fashion that we worked so hard to put behind us are coming back? Or is it? Because a trip back to the ’90s bring with it the hits of artists such as Alanis Morissette. Her ‘Jagged Little Pill’ album had us singing her rock anthems, throwing peace signs and questioning coincidence. Hear the whole album, plus a bonus set of late 20th Century hits. Scrunchies and flannels optional. Rams Head Live, 8 p.m. $13. ramsheadlive.com

‘How to Date Men
When You Hate Men’

The title of Blythe Roberson’s dating manual/commentary on modern life intrigues us.

Roberson is a writer for both the New Yorker and The Onion (what a great combo), and will read from her new book, which embraces both comedy and philosophy as well as dating. Bird in Hand, 7 p.m. Free. theivybookshop.com
