  •    On the Saturday of Columbus Day weekend, Bay Street will present Betty Buckley in “The Vixens of Broadway” at 8 p.m.
        Always popular, Ms. Buckley’s shows typically sell out. In this one, she presents songs from both classic and contemporary Broadway shows. She has previously starred in such Broadway productions as “Cats,” “Sunset Boulevard,” and “Pippin” and has won several awards.

  •    The Picture Show, Bay Street Theatre’s off-season classic-film series, will begin this weekend with a salute to Gene Kelly. “An American in Paris” will be shown tomorrow and “For Me and My Gal” will be screened on Saturday, both at 8 p.m.

  •    Harris Yulin and Mercedes Ruehl will star in a reading of William Douglas Home’s comedy “The Kingfisher” on Saturday at 8 p.m. at Guild Hall. Mr. Yulin will direct.
        The play is centered on the love affair of Cecil and Evelyn, both in their 70s, she recently widowed after 50 years of marriage. They were in love once before that, and now Cecil is determined to have her once and for all. The humorous practicalities of physical love at a certain age and a fussy butler add to the humor in this romantic comedy.
