'THE PRICE IS RIGHT LIVE!'
7:30 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $49-$60.

Man, oh, man. How does this reporter love "The Price is Right"? Let me count the ways. Growing up with a stay-at-home mom, we watched TPIR religiously, and often fantasized about landing on the show, spinning The Big Wheel and shooting it out with some house-frau in the Showcase Showdown.

Who knew you could get so much drama out of the price of a box of Brillo pads?

In celebration of the show's 40th anniversary on TV, "The Price is Right" has taken to the road and has brought along all your favorites, including prizes, games, and the chance for audience members to "Come on down!" They even brought The Big Wheel and the Plinko board. Bob Barker, however, is not along for the ride. You and your un-neutered pets will just have to muddle through without him.

    I'm kind of a nut on vampire films. For one thing, none of them — from "Nosferatu" to "Twilight" — are really about bloodsucking. They're always about something else: xenophobia, fear of having your metaphorical, jingoistic bloodlines polluted by a menacing foreign Other, hangups about sex, guilt about living so well in the West while countless millions in the Third World get paid pennies an hour to make Nike shoes and cute clothes for The Gap (drink up, you vampire you).
