MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, 465 Huntington Avenue, Boston 617-267-9300 LEONARDO DA VINCI AND THE mEA OF BEAUTY -- April 15 through June 14, 2015. In an intimate exhi- bition featuring master drawings by Lconardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, the star is a study of an angel that the art historian Sir Kenneth Clark called "the most beautiful ... in the world." Lconardo da Vinci's accom- plishments in art and science find their common ground in his drawings, into which he poured the full fervor of his intelligence and creative pow- ers. Throughout his career, Leonardo experimented with various types of drawings: scientific studies, grotesque caricatures of craggy faces, and the most beautiful faces of men and women that he could imagine. Many of Leonardo's most admired drawings are featured in this rich and varied selection of 29 sheets and a manu- script, opening on April 15, fittingly Leonardo's birthday. One revelation for visitors will be the rarely displayed Codex on Flight, one of Leonardo's most perceptive scientific explora- tions, with its nearly hidden self-por- trait of Leonardo as a young man, a recent discovery. The exhibition fea- tures rare loans from a number of Ital- ian public collections, including the Uffizi Museum in Florence, the Biblioteca Reale in Turin, and the Casa Buonarroti, the ancestral prop- erty of Michelangelo in Florence, which has lent eight drawings by that master.

With stunning visuals, the film renews our apprecia- tion for one of the most extraordinary and awe-inspiring aspects of the modern world. The documentary is produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (One Six Right), narrated by Harrison Ford, and features an origi- nal score by Academy Award winning composer James Horner (Avatar, Titanic}.

COLONIAL THEATRE 106 Boylston Street Boston, MA (617) 482-9393 DIRTY DANCING -- April 28 to May I0, 2015. The 1987 movie is an untouchable musical classic, and has sealed the sadly departed Patrick Swayze's place in the cult movie canon. A massive box office success at the time, it has spawned numer- ous imitators, a belated sequel and *nobody puts Baby in the corner" branded merchandise for toddlers. The stage version made its debut in 2004 in Australia. Adapted by the movie's original scribe Eleanor Bergstein, this North American tour- ing production hews closely to the plot of the movie, packing in all its anthemic anthems (I Had the Time of My Life, Hungry Eyes) and cheesy one- liners with aplomb. It delivers every- thing the audiences can hope for -- lots of sexy dancing and rock 'n' roll. Taking on the unenviable task of rep- licating Swayze's charm {and hunky good looks) in this tour is Samuel Pergande (Cirque Du Soleil: La Nouba), while Jfllian Mueller (Ameri- can Idiot} is the Baby to his Johnny.
