Do It Today: Black Eyed Peas in theaters, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof at Jobsite and an Eric Clapton tribute at Skipper's

Typically the realm of up-and-coming playwrights or an opportunity for writers to procure audience feedback on a work in progress, tonight's staged reading is the Lori Shannon-directed, Tennesee Williams-penned, Pulitzer-winning classic drama about a Southern family in crisis, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Visit for more info. Tues., March 30, 7:30 p.m., Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for Performing Arts, Tampa, $5, free for Jobsite season ticket holders.

Tonight's 'MNF-sponsored Eric Clapton 65th Birthday Tribute has four bands taking on the four sides of Derek and the Dominos’ 1970 double album, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. Captain Obvious and the Duh! Patrol present side one (which includes “Bell Bottom Blues), Butternut featuring blues guitarists Damon Fowler and Greg Poulos performs side two (“Key to the Highway”), Ted Lukas and the Misled play side three (“Have You Ever Loved a Woman?”), and Steve Connelly and The Lesser Gods take on side four (“Layla”). 8 p.m. Tues., March 30, Skipper's Smokehouse, Tampa, $13-$18, --Leilani Polk

Tonight brings a live broadcast of Black eyed Peas The E.N.D. World Tour in L.A.’s Staples Center. Maybe if you’re lucky you’ll be in a theater with a flash mob that does a super cool dance during “I Gotta Feeling.” And maybe Oprah will walk through the emergency door exit and join in. I get giddy with joy just thinking about it. 10:30 p.m. Tues., March 30, Regal Citrus Park 20, 7999 Citrus Park Town Center Mall, $15, visit for full list of participating theaters. —Lily Reisman
