Walking on Sunshine. Things got a little crazy in the '70s. The film Man on Wire, playing now at the Circle Cinema, 10 S. Lewis, chronicles the daring, and potentially deadly, stunt that Frenchman Philippe Petit pulled on August 7, 1974. Petit took leap of faith and walked (and danced) his way across a wire illegally setup between the World Trade Center towers, then the tallest buildings in the world. Petit was of course arrested for his 1,350 foot feat and subjected to a mental evaluation. You can't blame the authorities on that last count.

The Man, The Legend. Tulsa has hosted some pretty big acts in it's time but you won't find a more famous or more influential performer, song writer and singer than Bob Dylan.

Don't miss your chance to see this legend perform in our own backyard at the Brady Theater, 105 W. Brady St. Call 582-7239 or visit bradytheater.com for more information.
Beauty is Pain. Most women can attest to sore achy feet after an evening spent walking in high heels. How about wearing a dress that's so tight you can hardly breathe or eat?

Today, with her exhibit "Monsters in My Closet," Hammer illustrates the pain women endure to appear fashionable. The exhibit is on display for only a few days more at the Tulsa Artists Coalition Gallery, 9 E. Brady. Visit tacgallery.org or call 592-0041 to make an appointment to drop by.
