Ian Bell’s well-loved Brown Derby project is a series of intentionally high-speed train-crash readings of iconic film scripts in the boozy, glitter-and-duct-tape glamour of Re-bar. Tonight, Bell and his merry crew will shipwreck Titanic with Scott Shoemaker as Leonardo DiCaprio, Imogen Love as Kate Winslet, and Paula Deen as “the unsinkable Molly Brown.” (Note to attorneys: not literally Paula Deen.) Will Winslet shoot ping-pong balls at DiCaprio’s face while he sketches her in the nude? Will someone’s heart go on (and on and on)? Who will play the iceberg? There’s only one way to find out! (Re-bar, 1114 Howell St, brownderbyseries.org, 8 pm, $18, 21+, Aug 22-24)
