10,000 exotic butterflies

Butterfly Jungle

Butterfly Jungle

Each spring the Safari Park’s Hidden Jungle rain forest greenhouse is filled with 10,000 exotic butterflies of all colors and sizes, and guests can walk among them, take photos, and learn different species using a butterfly identification guide. If you wear bright colors, a few might just perch on you to take a closer look. Free with park admission.

Bachelorette.

Becky, in her late twenties, is getting married. She arranged a posh hotel suite with a view of NYC’s Central Park for her maid of honor. Becky didn’t invite Katie and Gena to the wedding. They arrive anyway, with a need to self-medicate. (Gena. “We don’t do heroin.” Katie: “We should start.”) The ensuing trash-farce turns Neil Simon’s Plaza Suite upside down and flattened. Through April 1 at the Backyard Renaissance at Diversionary Theatre.

Walter Trout

Blues-rock guitarist Walter Trout continues the “comeback” tour that began after recovering from his 2014 bout with liver failure. Not that he ever really went away, as he continued to drop approximately one album every year, even after his emergency liver transplant, an ordeal he chronicled on his next full-length, Battle Scars. He did take a brief break from recording to put out a 2016 live album, but he came roaring back last year with We’re All in This Together, which debuted atop the Billboard blues chart and will be featured prominently when he returns to the Belly Up for the fourth time in six years on Sunday, March 18.
