Feb. 4

Steve Treviño at the Capitol

Comedian Steve Treviño — who bills himself as “America’s Favorite Husband” and hosted a pandemic-era podcast with his wife, whose nickname is “Captain Evil” — is scheduled to perform in Salt Lake City on Sunday, at the Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at live-at-the-eccles.com.

Feb. 9-10

‘Here’s looking at you, kid’

The jazz song “As Time Goes By” was written in 1931 by Herman Hupfeld — but it’s forever associated with a movie released 11 years later, director Michael Curtiz’ “Casablanca.” It’s the song (sung by Dooley Wilson) that triggers the memories of the former lovers Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) and Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman), who are reunited as Ilsa and her freedom-fighter husband, Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid), try to escape the Nazis. That song, and the rest of Max Steiner’s classic score, will be performed live by the Utah Symphony, accompanying a screening of the film, Friday and Saturday at Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City. The show starts at 7 p.m. each night. (It also screens Thursday, at 7:30 p.m., at the Val A. Browning Center in Ogden.) Tickets are available at utahsymphony.org.

Feb. 9-17

‘Swan Lake’ is back

Ballet doesn’t get more classic than “Swan Lake,” the classic story of a prince, an evil wizard and an enchanted bird who becomes a beautiful woman by moonlight. Ballet West brings back artistic director Adam Sklute’s 2015 production of the work for a 10-performance run, starting Friday, 7:30 p.m., at the Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City. (Oh, and for modernists, the costumes worn for this show are the same ones Taylor Swift and the ballerinas wear in the video for her 2014 hit “Shake It Off.”) More performances are set for Saturday (at 2 and 7:30 p.m.), Feb. 11 (at 2 p.m.), 13-16 (at 7:30 p.m.) and 17 (at 2 and 7:30 p.m.). Tickets are available at balletwest.org.
