Theater

"War Horse": This Broadway import, appearing at the Broward Center Tuesday through May 19, examines the bond between humans and horses with robust storytelling and deft puppetry. Adapted from British author Michael Morpurgo's young-adult novel, Nick Stafford's play concerns a farm boy's relationship with a skittish chestnut colt, purchased at auction by his father, and their separation at the outset of World War I. The lifelike movements of the 120-pound "horse," built from aluminum, cane and fabric, are controlled by the Handspring Puppet Company. 8 p.m. $39.50-$89.50. 954-462-0222 or BrowardCenter.org. — Phillip Valys

Food

Food Truck Invasion: Food-truck roundups are now ubiquitous in Broward County, but how many can you name that cater to nerds? Along with the meals on wheels pulling into Plantation Heritage Park (1100 S. Fig Tree Lane) on Tuesday is a "Star Wars"-themed roundup of activities. Costumed characters from the films will be in attendance, perhaps to hold lightsaber duels uncomfortably close to your queue while you order buffalo mahi from B.C. Tacos. Tate's Comics will hand out "Star Wars" comics, and free Blu-ray copies of the original trilogy will be given away to fans. 5:30-9:30 p.m. Free. FoodTruckInvasion.com/Plantation. — Phillip Valys
