CITY OF STARS: La La Land in Concert
What does a multiple-Oscar-winning hit musical do for a second act? Go on tour. With La La Land in Concert, the Mahaffey Theater will have a live symphony orchestra playing the score while the movie starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling plays on a big screen. Damien Chazelle’s valentine to movie musicals has developed a cult following, as evidenced in past tour stops by the sea of yellow dresses in the audience — similar to the one worn by Stone in the film’s posters. The show starts at 7 p.m. Sunday at Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S, St. Petersburg. $45-$125. (727) 893-7832. themahaffey.com.

SMALL SPACE: Tiny Home Show
The tiny home craze brings images of twee hipsters lounging on foldaway futons with quaint, whimsical, Pinterest appeal.

You’ll also be able to tour a tiny firehouse featured on HGTV and Nawaka, the Victorian Tiny Home (tiny homes often have nicknames). There will also be some "skoolies," former school buses that are now homes. Vendors will be on hand to talk about furnishing living spaces of 100 to 400 square feet and there will be talks on sustainability, solar power and becoming debt-free. 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. 551 24th St. NE, Ruskin.
