Dinner and a show

Dinner and a show

Wait, Wait, Don’t Eat Me: A new theater game, “Trapped in a Room With a Zombie,” puts people in a room with an actor portraying a member of the living dead, chained to the wall. Participants have to solve a series of puzzles as the zombie slowly comes closer. Don’t complete the puzzles and the zombie eats (Page D6).

We’d suggest this as a way to freshen up a few TV game shows, such as “Wheel of Fortune,” but the brain-eating zombies would perish of malnutrition.

Set phasers on Tony: George Takei, who played Sulu on “Star Trek,” is taking his musical, “Allegiance,” based on his childhood experiences in a WWII internment camp, to Broadway (Page D6).

Ushers have strict instructions to “beam” William Shatner out of the theater if he tries to take the stage.

Your moment of zen: Comedy Central says Jon Stewart will leave “The Daily Show,” after anchoring the “fake news” show for 15 years. Stewart’s announcement follows Stephen Colbert’s earlier departure from “The Colbert Report” (Page A2).

Maybe it’s a bit premature, but we’re printing up “Stewart/Colbert 2016” bumper stickers immediately.

FILE -- In this Aug. 15, 2012 file photo, three variations of the AR-15 assault rifle are displayed at the California Department of Justice in Sacramento, Calif. While the guns look similar, the bottom version is illegal in California because of its quick reload capabilities. Omar Mateen used an AR-15 that he purchased legally when he killed 49 people in an Orlando nightclub over the weekend President Barack Obama and other gun control advocates have repeatedly called for reinstating a federal ban on semi-automatic assault weapons that expired in 2004, but have been thwarted by Republicans in Congress.
