Looks like rainy days ahead, which means maybe skip the outdoor concerts this weekend and head for the theater, concert hall, or art galleries instead. Quite a few shows are opening this week, including The Importance of Being Earnest at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in Center Valley. Muhlenberg Summer Theater’s production of Jesus Christ Superstar runs July 10 -28th.
Allentown Symphony joins a growing number of orchestras featuring video game scores along with a laser light show, synchronized video game graphics and interactive segments. Video Games Live will be at Miller Symphony Hall on Sunday evening, July 14th beginning at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $19-52.

Be the first to see all new segments featuring Metroid, Pokemon, Final Fantasy VIII, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, Portal, Mega Man, God of War, Mario and more. Enjoy a special 25th Anniversary salute toZelda and University of Maryland Gamer Symphony Orchestra alum Greg Cox’s evocative Final Fantasyarrangement. Classic hits include Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Castlevania, Tetris and more.
