Side Man

[STAGE] Friday, Sept. 14- Sunday, Sept. 30

Side men are different from front men or backup — they’re both, depending on what the job requires. Side Man is the story of Clifford Glimmer, son of a selfish jazz trumpeter and an alcoholic mother. The story follows Glimmer through three tumultuous decades, as his family falls apart and he is forced to take the reigns. This semi-autobiographical tale is loosely based on the author’s own father, who was a musician for hire.

Thursday-Saturday, 8 p.m., Sunday, 2 p.m.; Las Vegas Little Theater, 3920 Schiff Drive, www.LVLT.org, 362-7996, $21-$24
