Featuring a fun combination of improv comedy, music, dress-up, and animation, The End of the World Show promises to be an interesting production.

5) Good Fridays at the Warhol is a weekly party at the museum, featuring art exhibits, music, and cocktails in the high temple to Andy Warhol’s numerous talents. Half-price museum admission. 5 – 10 p.m. 117 Sandusky St., North Shore.
