Guys and Dolls * Frank Loesser's classic comic musical has undergone countless incarnations since its debut in 1950, but the story of bad-boy Nathan Detroit and good-gal Sarah Brown has certainly withstood the test of time. With Broadway standards like "Luck Be a Lady" and "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat," Guys and Dolls still satisfies. Friday through Sunday, various showtimes. $16-$56. Raleigh Memorial Auditorium. 500 Fayetteville St. Mall, Raleigh. For info: Call (919) 834-4000.
Aerosmith * Recess' favorite geriatric rockers are back in the Triangle for a one-night stand of pop-rock pageantry. Steven Tyler & Co. promise an earful of their 30-year discography, from wistful "Sweet Emotions" to "Jaded" post-modernity. Friday, Sept. 21, 7:30pm. Alltel Pavilion at Walnut Creek. 3801 Rock Quarry Rd., Raleigh. $30-$75. For info: www.alltelpavilion.com or call (919) 834-4000.
