Tango takes flight in 8cho, opening tonight and running through June 30 at the Arsht Center in Miami. The Ziff Ballet Opera House will be transformed into a “sexy, exhilarating, gravity-defying world” by more than a dozen aerialists, dancers and musicians who perform entire dance routines in the air. Suspended on ropes high above the stage, performers leap, swivel and fly through the air, creating a sultry kaleidoscope of movement and action, all set to an achingly cool, original hip-hop and tango-infused score performed by a live orchestra. Tickets are $35-75. For show times and tickets, go to ArshtCenter.org.

Giudice is also a successful cookbook author—just ask her ghostwriter. Meet her at Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, 1 Las Olas Blvd., tonight at 7 p.m. in the Books & Books shop.

Entr’Acte Theatrix will present Monty Python's Spamalot from June 20 - 30 at the Crest Theatre at the Delray Center for the Arts, Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave. in Delray Beach. The musical, "lovingly ripped off” from the 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, features a book by Python Eric Idle and a score by Idle and John Du Prez. Like the film, it’s a totally irreverent and typically Pythonesque parody.
