What to do today
Video Stuff: This week the Dunedin Historical Museum opens a retro exhibit worthy of Ms. Pac Man's favors. "Video Stuff" takes you through the history of video games, from the now 30-year-old legend Pong to that Xbox 360 you pretend is really for the kids. Best of all, the exhibit includes a game area where you can take a crack at playing some of the early video machines as they appeared in arcades and shopping malls — except this time you won't have to wear polyester doubleknits and feathered bangs. The museum, 349 Main St. next to the Pinellas Trail in downtown Dunedin, is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Video Stuff runs until the end of May, and a $2 donation is requested. (727) 736-1176.
A Chorus Line: Seventeen dancers tune up for the audition of their lives in this winner of nine Tony Awards, including best musical. 7:30 p.m. Morsani Hall at Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, 1010 N MacInnes Place, Tampa. Runs through Sunday. Tickets $38.50 and up. (813) 229-7827. tbpac.org
Circus Sarasota: If you prefer your circus the old-fashioned way, Circus Sarasota will have all the acrobats, clowns, animal trainers and contortionists you could want. The show is running now through Feb. 22 (except Feb. 9 and 17). Performance times vary, with evening performances most nights and matinees Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday. You'll find the tent outside Ed Smith Stadium, 12th Street and Tuttle Avenue, Sarasota. $10-$47. (941) 355-9805. circussarasota.org. — Adam Newman [email protected]
