Legendary Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine shares her stories of life in Hollywood with comedy and sincerity. MacLaine's interest in the metaphysical and the influence of her parents -- her mother was a drama teacher and father an educator -- will likely be a large part of her conversation as they usually are for the comedic actor, singer and author when taking an audience through the life and times of Shirley MacLaine.
Why go: This is not a "back when I was acting" evening as the Oscar-winning MacLaine appeared this season as Martha Levinson on the PBS Masterpiece Classic "Downton Abbey."
Reconsider: Is she a mystic or an actress?
8 p.m. Friday at Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles; $29-$125; 630-962-7000, oshows.com
