Tyson to go a round at Fox
“Mike  Tyson: Undisputed Truth,” the one-man Broadway monologue that the controversial ex-boxer has described as a “rollercoaster of emotions,” is headed out on a 10-week tour that brings it to Atlanta and the Fox Theatre at 8 p.m. April 20. Directed by Spike Lee, the show was announced Tuesday, and tickets, $57.15-$142.50 (including fees), already are on sale via 1-855-285-8499, HOWARD POUSNER 

The art of staying healthy
At a time when many Americans can’t afford health insurance, individual artists are particularly vulnerable. That’s the impetus behind an Arts Health Day program being offered for free from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Little Five Points Community Center. Presented by C4 Atlanta, Alternate Roots and WonderRoot, it will include a keynote talk by Jim Brown of the Actor’s Fund on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, panel discussions, yoga and tai chi demonstrations and a health fair. 1083 Austin Ave. N.E., Atlanta. HOWARD POUSNER

Buy art, support Art Papers
Works by more than 250 local and national artists will go to the highest bidders at the Art Papers Art Auction, 7-10 p.m. Saturday at Mason Murer Fine Art. A fundraiser for the Atlanta-based arts journal, the auction is also one of the city’s biggest yearly art parties, with a DJ, food from metro restaurants and a cash bar. Tickets for the silent auction/party are $45 advance, $55 door. A Collector’s Preview, 7-9 p.m. Friday, $190 (includes a Saturday ticket), features the option to purchase select works, live jazz, hors d’oeuvres and open bar. 199 Armour Drive N.E. Atlanta.

Ludwig Symphony gets romantic
Every female guest will receive a rose at the Ludwig Symphony Orchestra’s “A Beethoven Romance For Valentine’s Day” concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. Musical guests include cellist Caroline Nicolas, baritone Igor Vieira and 14-year-old violinist Tracy Du of Johns Creek High School. $22, seniors $19, students (under 22) $12. 950 Forest St., Roswell. 770-623-8623, HOWARD POUSNER
