Blue Man Group

Wed., April 16, 7:30 p.m., Thu., April 17, 7:30 p.m., Fri., April 18, 8 p.m., Sat., April 19, 2 & 8 p.m. and Sun., April 20, 1:30 & 7 p.m.

Universal appeal. That’s the key to Blue Man Group’s long-term success. The show just never seems to get old for adults or children, women or men, and audiences comprised of various races, cultures and nationalities. And let’s not forget its interactive components, largely responsible for return visits. BMG is known for alien antics and for picking fun at latecomers and overly eager volunteers. Prop items like pipes, trash cans and paint put unpredictable spins on the mime-like performance, supplemented by experimental musical elements. Though you won’t take away any profound epiphanies from a BMG show, it resonates for a night of fun entertainment. (Anita Overcash)

Taste of the Nation

Wed., April 16, 7 p.m.
, ,

If you’re going to shell out $75 to $100 for a culinary event, it may as well be this one. The annual Taste of the Nation features more than 20 upscale Charlotte area restaurants and catering services providing samples of staples from their menus. Among this year’s participants are Baku, Chima Brazilian Steakhouse, Upstream, Saffron Indian Cuisine, Mimosa Grill and more. It all amounts to foodie heaven, but there’s also a fully stocked bar, auctions and live entertainment through the course of the evening. Plus, the real reason to not flinch at the cost of the event: It’s a benefit for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry program, which provides food for children who might otherwise go without. For more information, www.ce.strength.org/charlotte. (Anita Overcash) $75-$100
