Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre at Hartwood Acres (CP’s Sun. 8/18/13)

1) Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre performs this Sunday at Hartwood Acres amphitheater as part of the Allegheny County Summer Concert Series. Head on out and get a little culture and beauty in your life. 7:30 p.m.  200 Hartwood Acres, Indiana and Hampton townships.

2) If your taste runs to post-apocalyptic fantasies, here’s a chance to savor a darkly comic, dystopian tale. The play Don Juan Comes Back from the War, long a cult favorite in Europe, has been put into a new English version that’s being given its U.S. premiere by Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre. The play’s author, Odon von Horvath, imagined the mythical seducer Don Juan in a nightmarish setting. He’s a German veteran of World War I, the calamity that ushered in our modern age by changing everything while solving nothing. Coming home to the chaos of defeated Berlin, Don Juan finds that women are still game but the game is turning against him. Runs through Aug. 13 and features nudity and foul language. 2 p.m. Henry Heymann Theatre (the downstairs theater in the Stephen Foster Memorial) next to the Cathedral of Learning, 4301 Forbes Ave., Oakland.

3) If you’re looking for some action on the south bank of the Mon river,  local guitar virtuoso Tony Janflone, Jr. and Band brighten up a Sunday evening  on the South Side with sets at the Carson City Saloon. 5:45 p.m. 1401 E. Carson St.

4) Citiparks Cinema in the Park features the movie Jumanji (PG 13), where a supernatural board game places the hazards of the jungle at every move. Starring Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, and Kirsten Dunst. Dusk. Free.  Flagstaff Hill, Schenley Park.
