To do Wednesday: Shorts 4 Kids, Sax in the City and "The Big Lebowski"

"Shorts 4 Kids": Think of it as plays for young audiences, in bite-size portions for elementary and middle school students. The best part of Miami-based City Theatre's four 10-minute plays dealing with acceptance, differences and bullying? It's free. Showtimes are 1 and 5 p.m. today and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday. The show will be staged at the Broward County Main Library, 100 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Reserve space by calling 305-755-9401, ext. 12 or emailing – Rod Stafford Hagwood


Sax in the City: Downtown Hollywood is the setting for the jazzy warmth of the city's summer concert series, which will plant four local musicians along random sidewalk posts around Young Circle. Tonight's 6-8 p.m. lineup includes local rockers The Delusions, jazz jammer Anthony Corrado, R&B musicians the Ike Woods Band and Brazilian funk artist Cezar Santana. These curbside troubadours can be spotted on the 1900 block of Hollywood Boulevard; Anniversary Park (Hollywood Boulevard and 20th Avenue); the 2000 block of Hollywood; and the 1900 block of Harrison Street. 954-924-2980 or – Phillip Valys


"The Big Lebowski": The Dude abides tonight's screening of the Coen Brothers' cult film. The movie follows our White Russian-sipping antihero, a modern-day cowboy who's the kind of man who will write a check at the supermarket just to pay for his half-and-half. The Dude (or El Duderino, if you're not into the whole brevity thing) can be found bowling with league pals Walter and Donny and finding himself tangled in a massive conspiracy involving a soiled rug, a millionaire's kidnapped daughter and at least one brush with angry German nihilists. The 6 and 8:30 p.m. screenings take place at the Crest Theatre (51 N. Swinton Ave.) in Delray Beach. 561-243-7922 or - Phillip Valys
