Tuesday To-Do: 'The Aluminum Show'

'THE ALUMINUM SHOW'
7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $22.80-$55.15.

This is some strange stuff. Also: unbelievable and also, admittedly, a lot more compelling than I expected before diving into this write-up. The plot, I understand, is that a piece of flexible aluminum tubing (think air duct) is born, loses its parents and sets forth on a journey through other metals to find them.

But the visuals, part modern dance, part acrobatics, part "ooh, shiny," are dazzling in the same style of "Stomp" or "The Blue Man Group."

If you've been itching for a spectacle, look no further. The troupe stays in Robinson for a three-day stint, continuing Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
