Tonight @ the Marcus Center - 5 and 8 p.m.

Sorry fans of the short-lived ABC sitcom “Cavemen,” the touring production of Defending the Caveman isn’t about those particular, Geico-promoting early humans, but rather about Mars/Venus observations about the differences between men and women. Like the ABC sitcom, though, the material isn’t . . .

Tonight @ the Harley-Davidson Museum - 8 p.m.
