Jan. 27

Sound off

Catch the almost-lost Orson Welles film “Too Much Johnson,” made in 1938 as an homage to the silent slapstick comedies of 20 years before, but never screened. Guitairist Gary Lucas provides a live semi-improvised soundtrack for the film, which he describes as “like the Keystone Cops on acid.”

8 pm at Roulette [509 Atlantic Ave. at Third Avenue in Boerum Hill,]. Jan. 27 at 8 pm. $25 ($20 in advance).


Jan. 28

Making a splash

With a bathroom for her theater, a tub for her stage, and bubbles for her wardrobe, Brooklyn actress Siobhan O’Loughlin invites a limited audience to her immersive theater show “Broken Bone Bathtub,” in which her character regales the audience with the story of her broken arm while taking a bath in a borrowed home. The show continues next weekend in Fort Greene and Prospect Heights.

7 pm and 9 pm in Crown Heights (location will be sent to ticket holders after purchase, $35.

Six other sets of kids’ cartoons will play all morning, focusing on themes of friendship, family, and being yourself.

Reasonable discourse

Alanna Bizzell from Weston says:
That's such an awesome news and better take on the things to do for renovation. The bathroom is one of the best places in the home, which gives a mesmerizing feel and phrasing joy. Bathtub refinishing agents like Bathtub reglazing Hallandale ( ) helps to recover the things which are not good in condition to use. Refinishing the bathtub gives a glossy look all over the bathroom that enhance the beauty of the home.
