Thinking Cap Theatre presents “Lizzie the Musical,” through Nov. 4 at the Vanguard Sanctuary for the Arts, 1501 S. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Nicole Stodard directs the production. Tickets are $40 at ThinkingCapTheatre.com.

Tune in to “At Home with Amy Sedaris” on truTV, premiering tonight at 10:30 p.m. The comedian cordially invites you into her home, where she will show off diverse but necessary homemaking skills, from creating popsicle-stick buddies and gutting a fish to making raisin necklaces and entertaining businessmen.
