A relative newcomer to the Montreal theatre scene, Snowglobe Theatre launches their second production tonight at the MainLine Theatre with a stage adaptation of the 1940’s screwball comedy His Girl Friday, incorporating elements from both the Cary Grant film and the original source, a novel called The Front Page that features an ensemble cast in a witty, fast-paced adventure through themes including challenges women face in the workplace, links between journalism and powerful elites, and more that are just as relevant today as over half a century ago. 3997 St-Laurent, 8 p., $20/$15 students, runs through Dec. 10

A trio of pretty great local experimental musicians — namely Jessica Moss, Ben Shemie (of Suuns) and Drywall (feat. members of Big/Brave) — are sharing a bill at Bar le Ritz PDB. Prepare to be impressed. 179 Jean-Talon W., 9:30 p.m., $12/$15
