Things to do in Tampa Bay for April 17

Mike Tyson in Undisputed Truth: The former boxer is no stranger to introspection, as evident in the 2008 documentary Tyson, and now he's bringing his one-man show to Clearwater. It was previously on Broadway, directed by Do the Right Thing filmmaker Spike Lee. It begins at 8 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 N McMullen-Booth Road, Clearwater. $50-$100. (727) 791-7400.

Andy Grammer: The pop singer-songwriter (Keep Your Head Up) who headlined November's Martini Fest in Curtis Hixon Park will be in St. Pete for a State Theatre show. Singer-songwriter Andrew Ripp opens. The concert starts at 7 p.m. at State Theatre, 687 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. $22. (727) 895-3045.

Clearwater Farmers Market: Find fresh produce, cheese, artisan baked goods, and flowers at this weekly market. It starts at 9 a.m. at Cleveland Street and N Fort Harrison Avenue, Clearwater. Free. (727) 461-7674.

'S Wonderful: Five mini-musicals pay tribute to the styles and places that influenced George and Ira Gershwin's songbook, from their start in New York City in 1916 to New Orleans in the '50s. Hear more than 40 classic hits including Shall We Dance and Rhapsody in Blue. See it at 7:30 p.m. in the Jaeb Theater at the Straz Center in Tampa. $32.50. (813) 229-7827.

When the World Was Green (A Chef's Fable): It's the last week to catch this mysterious drama about a reporter interviewing a chef in prison, which runs through April 21. See it tonight at 8 p.m. at American Stage in St. Petersburg. $39; $20 student advance, $10 student rush. (727) 823-7529.


SEASON FINALE Suburgatory, 8 p.m., ABC Two episodes wrap this season, with George booting Tessa, who then moves out. As if that's a real problem. Isn't that what you wanted?

Ghost Hunters, 9 p.m., SyFy The first of six new episodes, in which TAPS heads to Shreveport, La., to see if there are ghosts there. You'd think that would be Southern Paranormal Investigators' job.
