Find some time this week to head over to the Red Eye Theater and catch Life’s Parade, the third and final installment of their cinema-inspired plays by Red Eye Artistic Director Steve Busa and playwright Katharine Sherman. The inventive story and production draws from Douglas Sirk’s lush mid-century melodramas and tells the story of a divorcée wrapped up in over-the-top romantic fantasies trying to jumpstart her own life’s reinvention. Tonight’s showing, btw, is pay-as-able. Through Thursday, various showtimes. $10-20.Hitara
