What to do tonight: 4/17

Ivy Film Festival: advanced screening of “Sympathy for Delicious”

5:30 p.m-7:30 p.m., MacMillan 117, free

A Q&A with writer and star Christopher Thorton and producer Andrew Renzi will follow this Sundance award-winning film, also starring Mark Ruffalo, Orlando Bloom and Laura Linney. Right afterward, come to the Ivy Film Festival Awards Ceremony presented by Paramount Pictures in Alumnae Hall. Then head on down to Fish Co. with your Brown ID for the after party 10:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m.

Revenge of the WORD!s

8:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m., Rites and Reasons Theatre, free

The words strike back, and with a vengeance. What they are avenging is unclear, but they’re not the type of words I would mess with — and there are a lot of them too, with 30 performers throughout the course of the weekend. Attendees will also probably abound, so arrive early to hear (and see) poems about justice, philosophy and chewing with your mouth open.

As You Like It

10:00 p.m., Lincoln Field, free

“All the world’s a stage” this weekend, or at least all of Lincoln Field, thanks to Shakespeare on the Green. If you can’t make it tonight, there’s also the option to “fleet the time carelessly” at 3:00 p.m. tomorrow.

Brown-RISD Drag Show

8:00-10:30 p.m., RISD Auditorium, free

The title is pretty self-explanatory: watch each queen strut his/her/phe’s stuff as part of Pride Series 2010: Imagining Queer. A sex toy raffle and the release of queer literary and art journal The Agenda also take place at the annual drag show. Though not required, it is suggested that attendees wear occasion-appropriate attire and bring a donation to Providence Youth Movement’s Queer Program “SeaQue!”

And if you can, try to squeeze in some time to accomplish chores, errands and other tasks you’ve been postponing for a blah day.
