The venerable community theater—Southern Nevada’s oldest—has been breaking a leg since way back in 1978. Located in an unassuming strip mall in Chinatown, it’s a versatile delight, featuring both a main stage and a black box venue. In addition to its own excellent productions, LVLT hosts the annual New Works Competition and Vegas Fringe Festival. 3920 Schiff Drive, 702-362-7996.
