If it's been a while since you laughed with your sweetie, you might be able to change that this weekend.

The Egyptian Theatre is bringing the comedy hit "Defending the Caveman" to Park City for three nights.

Egyptian Theatre audiences loved Michael Van Osch in this one-man show in April, when he played to sold-out houses. "Caveman" is a very funny, "prehistoric" look at the battle of the sexes; it ran for two years on Broadway and has since had a very successful touring life.

Take your sweetheart and go celebrate the differences between men and women and how we relate (or don't!).

"Defending the Caveman," Thursday through Saturday, 8 p.m., Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main, Park City, $34.50-$44.50, cabaret table seating available (435-649-9371 or www

.parkcityshows.com).

"Beauty and the Beast," Friday through Oct. 3, Center Street Musical Theatre, 177 W. Center, Provo.

The Broadway version of Disney's classic tale features all the memorable songs from the animated movie plus other favorites written for the stage. The show stars Camille Hancock, Joel Tobey and Grant Whitmer (double cast as the Beast), Matthew Christensen, John Gaskin, Amber Hurley and Bryce Chamberlain.

Shows are Friday, Saturday and Monday nights, 7:30 p.m., with Saturday matinees available, $8-$10 (801-373-4485 or www.csmtc.com).
