This Week's Critics' Picks

The Houseboat Tour, salt art, and Bombay Dreams top our list.

Sun - Tour

OK, even if you've never seen Sleepless in Seattle you probably know that blockbuster made Lake Union houseboats famous. The floating abode where Tom Hanks indulged his insomnia will be one of 15 you'll visit on the 2006 Houseboat Tour. Terry Pettus Park, Fairview Avenue East and Newton Street, 206-325-1132. $25. Noon–5 p.m. Sun., Sept. 10.ADRIANA GRANT

Mon - Visual Art

Michael Magrath goes Biblical and political with his new installation Lot's Tribe: Salt Witnesses, three life-size figures made of ordinary table salt depicting victims of war in the Middle East. The pieces will stand in a plein air memorial that will be as vulnerable to the elements as its subjects were to their fates. Occidental Square, Occidental Avenue and South Main Street. Mon., Sept. 11. SUE PETERS

Tues - Theater

Let's be honest: We can't exactly call Bombay Dreams a Broadway smash. But if you like the spectacle and color of Bollywood cinema, you won't want to miss this stage fantasia. 5th Avenue Theatre, 1308 Fifth Ave., 206-625-1900, $20–$73. Opens Tues., Sept. 12. Tues.–Sun. through Oct. 1. LYNN JACOBSON
