“A Night in India”

Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre has offered celebratory nights of Indian-influenced dance in the past. This year, it will close its season with another program featuring new work from the group’s namesake choreographer. June 9-10 Tarkington Theatre Details

“The Great Bike Race”

The 2014 Indy Fringe Festival favorite expands into a full-length play, turning the 1904 running of the Tour de France—rife with cheating, lying and sabotage—into a hilariously original comedy enhanced with creative video work. June 9-22 Theatre on the Square Details

“The Jungle Book”/”Singin’ in the Rain”

Here's a tough choice. Yes, the live-action/CGI redo was just fine. But no Hollywood remake can beat the sight of Baloo crashing King Louie’s “I Wanna Be Like You” number in the animated Disney version of “The Jungle Book.” Thank goodness nobody has tried to remake “Singin’ in the Rain,” perhaps the most smile-inducing of Hollywood musicals. Unfortunately, both hit the big screens on the same day “The Jungle Book” June 10  Indianapolis Museum of Art  Details “Singin’ in the Rain” June 10  Garfield Park Details
