Theater: Catch a staging of "The Glass Menagerie" tonight, 8 p.m., at Todd Theatre at the University of Rochester's River Campus. Tickets are $10-$15 and the show continues through May 4. For more information, visit rochester.edu/theatre.

Music: Before you dismiss Insane Clown Posse as merely juvenile humor for booger-eating morons drenched in soda pop, check out one of the duo’s more recent videos, “Where’s God?” with the thought-provoking chorus, “Where’s god when shit goes down?” Believe it or not, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have been at it for more than 30 years, releasing over 23 albums where above and beyond the celebrated lo-jinx, they’ve created a kind of lyrical and mystical fantasy world called the Dark Carnival.
