Looking for something to do today? Agenda's got you covered:

Stop and smell the runway roses at Fleurotica, where models walk the Museum of Contemporary Art catwalk in garments made entirely of flowers. Proceeds from the event benefit the Garfield Park Conservatory.

Once a month, Striding Lion Performance Group and Voice of the City collaborate for Vaudeville Roars!, in which nine five-minute-long acts keep the seating configuration rotating and the mood light. Past shows have featured ukulele stand-up, an oboe, and Elvis songs covered by violinist clowns.

"At the top of [Best Musical!, a] highly entertaining show from Porchlight Music Theatre, cast members ad-lib five songs based on titles suggested by the audience. Then we vote for our favorite, and the winner serves as the foundation for a wholly improvised, hour-long musical comedy," writes Reader contributor Zac Thompson. Catch the show at Stage 773.
