TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY: "Happy Days" are here again. No, we're not talking about a stage revue of the classic sitcom. We're talking about a production of Samuel Beckett's touching drama on stage now at the Westport Country Playhouse. The play tells the story of a woman's cheerful optimism in the face of a trifling universe. Throughout the play, you'll get a glimpse at beauty and explore what it means to be alive (now that's some deep stuff). Tickets are $35 to $65. The show runs through July 24. Tonight's performance is at 8 p.m.
MOOD RINGS: Since the 1960s, The Moody Blues have been one of Rock's most recognizable names. Part of the British Invasion, the Moody Blues are part of the pantheon of bands, thanks to hits like "Nights in White Satin." Tonight, the band is making a stop in Connecticut at the Ives in Danbury. Tickets are $51 to $91 or $27 for lawn seats. The show starts at 8 p.m.
MIC'D UP: We always tell you about how you can go see other bands, whether they be popular, up-and-comers or (let's face it) on the downside of their careers. But what about you? You've got a guitar. You just broke up with your girlfriend. You need an outlet. You need an open mic night. We have two choices for your musical mind. The Blue Plate Cafe in Plainville, and John Harvard's Brewhouse in Manchester both let you sing your heart out starting at 9 p.m.
