30 Rock’s final episode After seven seasons, Tina Fey’s sitcom about the dysfunctional cast and crew of a sketch-comedy show is coming to an end. The final season has been an excellent return to form, and this week’s series finale promises to send the show out on a high note. January 31, 8 p.m., NBC.
Night of the Living Dead The Rocky Horror Picture Show isn’t the only movie that can have a live cast accompaniment; this zombie classic will get the same treatment, complete with costumes and audience participation. February 2, 10 p.m., $10, Sci Fi Center.
Anything Goes Singles search for true love (on a cruise ship, of all places) in this classic Cole Porter comedy. The critically acclaimed show, which won the 2011 Tony for Best Musical Revival, lands at the Smith Center this week. February 5-8, 7:30 p.m.; 9-10, 2 & 7:30 p.m.; $24-$129.
Lectures at UNLV Yosef Garfinkel (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) talks “Cult and Politics in Israel in the Time of King David” at the Student Union on February 4, then two days later Alan Rosen (International School for Holocaust Studies in Israel) presents “Killing Time, Saving Time: Calendars and the Holocaust” at Barrick Museum. Both 7:30 p.m., free.
Downtown Las Vegas Music Showcase What’s better about Life Is Beautiful’s first local-bands night—that the festival picked quality bands (Rusty Maples, American Cream, Same Sex Mary, Coastwest Unrest, Play for Keeps, The Perks) or that it’s free? Let’s call it a tie. February 6, 8 p.m., Artifice.
Free pancakes! Usually we roll our eyes at faux holidays, but National Pancake Day comes with hot, buttery flapjacks soaked in syrup. And they’re free, at IHOPs across the country, which are also encouraging guests to donate to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Breakfast with a side of good karma. February 5, 7 a.m.-10 p.m., various IHOP locations.
