1. A'lante Flamenco's "Amor Fati"
8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday through Jan. 20. $21.75. The Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Dr. thelongcenter.org.
Love, death, passion and grief are the ingredients of any good flamenco song and, perhaps not coincidentally, all the elements of the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. A’lante Flamenco’s premiere work "Amor Fati" spins the famous tale of the two lovers fated to be separated by death — or are they? The flamenco company brings Orpheus and his world to life through fiery flamenco guitar, searing vocals and flamenco dance that is by turns earthy and ethereal. Special guest Alex Ruiz — frontman of Del Castillo, the Night Mothers and Chingon — will lend his musical talents to the show.

At one point or another, we’ve all killed Mr. Boddy. The Alamo Drafthouse is once again celebrating the hilarious film adaptation of the board game “Clue” with a movie party.

Though the Alamo won’t be handing out ropes or lead pipes, you will be getting props to intensify your evening at Mr. Boddy’s spooky manor.
