Looking for something fun to do in South Florida?
If you just happen to be one of the four daughters of Sappho in the world who have never seen “The Vagina Monologues,” here’s your chance: Eve Ensler’s timeless and unabashedly political celebration of womanhood returns to South Florida this weekend at the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center, 3385 NE 188th St. in Aventura, tonight and tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 13, at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $35 at AventuraCenter.org.
Netflix has once again served up some riveting original television. This weekend, “Mindhunter” is available on the streaming and DVD-rental service. The psychological drama chronicles the investigations of a young agent (Jonathan Groff, HBO’s “Looking”) in the FBI’s elite serial crime unit that tracks killers and rapists. The series is powerful and goes way beyond anything on “Criminal Minds.” See it at Netflix.com.
MNM Productions presents “La Cage aux Folles,” the beloved musical about a gay nightclub owner and his drag performer husband, through Oct. 22 in the Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

Feeling horny tonight? There’s an app for that. “Hook Ups Vol. 1” is a collection of short plays about—you guessed it—gay men hooking up on Grindr, Scruff, Growler and Mark’s List. The plays are sexy, funny and just a little kinky, too, with male frontal nudity and explicit situations. This hit production closes Oct. 22 at Empire Stage, 1140 N. Flagler Drive in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets are $35-50 at RonnieLarsen.com.
