Comedy: Fuzzy Dice Improv Comedy presents “Sidekicks”
Some refer to them as “scrubs” or “newbs” (alternatively, “n00bs”), but Fuzzy Dice would like to introduce their new members as “sidekicks.” Sidekicks aren’t lame; they’re necessary for bringing out the awesome in the superheroes they will eventually become. Don’t miss out on these Robins before they take over for Batman and, by extension, become way too cool for you to sit with at lunch. Tickets are on sale at the Frist ticketing office.
Thursday and Friday, 11 p.m.
Poetry: Songline Slam presents “Lost & Found”
Weeks ago, we told you about Songline’s new members arch. Now, they are all grown up (as far as weeks of growing up go) and ready for their first “real” show of the year. Come find every emotion and every pretty word you’ve ever lost — or never knew you needed — at Whitman’s Class of 1970 Theater this weekend, entirely free of charge. Just bring your ears, your snapping-ready fingers and your love for spoken word.

Event: Princeton Muslim Students’ Association presents “Muslim Monologues”
It is always easier to generalize cultures than to understand them. Given traumatic events in recent history and the present day, it is perhaps especially easy to do so about Islam. But it is much more productive to try to understand rather than to draw unfounded conclusions, and this Friday, Muslim Students on campus will share their stories “uncut and unedited.” Go, listen to their stories, and learn.
