"GRIDIRON: A VIEW FROM THE BAR"
8 p.m., Arkansas Repertory Theatre. $35-$40.

The Arkansas Bar Association's biannual comedy revue returns to the Rep stage to skewer local and national political and legal figures. The legal community makes up the cast, the Rep provides production support and Lori Isner of the Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre conducts an eight-piece orchestra. This year, the show is set at a meeting of the Arkansas Bar Association at the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs, where the cast of the daytime talk show "The View" is staying. The satire, written by lawyers whose names are kept secret, shouldn't be so exclusive that folks outside the legal community don't get the jokes, producer Judge Mary McGowan promises. "Gridiron" continues at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Tickets to the final Saturday performance are $25.
