$15+; 7:30 p.m.
Gather up the kids, and get them to the Brown Theatre next Wednesday. Why? Because the place will be crawling with acrobats. Direct from Beijing, the National Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China will swarm the Brown with its unique brand of stunning entertainment. The acrobatic troupe was the first National Performing Arts Troupe established by the government of the People’s Republic of China in 1950; since then, it’s been traveling the world, and this represents the first-ever American tour. Part of the Yum! Family Series, this one is a guaranteed good time — although parents should be forewarned that the Brown is not responsible for any property damage or injuries incurred during children’s backyard re-enactments. Which is to say: Kids, don’t try this at home. —Kevin Gibson
