RALEIGH
TOOTS
N.C. MUSEUM OF ART—If you had the good fortune to live in New York City in the mid-20th century, you knew Toots Shor. Or you wished you did. Shor was pal to jocks, jazzmen, starlets and gangsters, all of whom could be found at his famed nightspot. His granddaughter Kristi Jacobson became a documentary filmmaker—like a lot of celebrity offspring!—and her film Toots is showing this afternoon as an appetizer for this June's Triangle Jewish Film Festival. Tickets ($15/$18) are available at the museum box office (715-5923) or online at www.ncartmuseum.org. The film is at 2 p.m., to be followed by a private reception in the Education lobby and a viewing of the Judaic Art Gallery. —David Fellerath

THE MAN IN THE DESERT
THEATRE IN THE PARK—Last chance to see Ira David Wood's T.E. Lawrence! Written by Peter Colley, the play traces the exploits of one of Britain's most mythologized figures—touching on the same truths and non-truths that animated Lawrence of Arabia—and focuses on his later life. Set in Iraq during the 1930s British occupation, the play also has resonance with the current situation in the region. Tickets are $13-$19. For more info, visit www.theatreinthepark.com or call 831-6058. —Megan Stein
