FOR MATURE AUDIENCES

A faerie, a cursed woman who becomes a lion and a traveling circus are ingredients of Real Live Theatre’s world premiere play, “The Lion & The Clown: A Rumi Love Song for Beauty & The Beast,” written and directed by RLT co-founder Ellen Morbyme. It will be performed at The Arts Trust Building, 33 Hawley St. in Northampton Sept. 19-21, at 8 p.m. Organizers promise poetry, magic, love and, oh yes, obscenity, so leave the kiddos at home. Ticket info at reallivetheatre.net.

ANOTHER GOOD BET

On Sept. 20, at UMass, the Massachusetts Dance Festival will offer a variety of dance classes in the Totman Building from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and a gala concert at 8 p.m. in Bowker Auditorium. Info and tickets at www.massdancefestival.org, 545-6064.
