MUSIC

Since forming literally after playing around a campfire during a folk festival in upstate New York, the folk trio Red Molly has made a name for itself with three-part vocal harmony and dobro-tinged sound. The group will perform two shows this weekend at the Phillips Center’s Squitieri Studio Theatre. While Saturday’s 7:30 p.m. performance is sold out, tickets are still available for a 2 p.m. performance on Sunday.

Red Molly: 7:30 p.m. Saturday (sold out), 2 p.m. Sunday, Squitieri Studio Theatre, Phillips Center. Tickets: $30. (392-2787)

THEATER

In the wake of the crowd-pleasing stage production, “100 Years of Broadway,” creator Neil Berg has fashioned a new stage extravaganza — “100 Years of Hollywood” — which recreates some of the best-loved scenes from movie musicals and classic films. Set for a Friday performance at the Phillips Center, the production will feature actual stars from such Broadway hits as “Cats,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Evita,” performing songs from such memorable films as “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Goldfinger,” “Dreamgirls” and many others.

Neil Berg’s “100 Years of Hollywood”: 7:30 p.m. Friday, Phillips Center. Tickets: $25-$45. (392-2787)
