Sooner or later, with all of technology’s leaps and bounds, we’re bound to stare a dinosaur straight in the reptilian eye. Not in the Jurassic Park way, but in the sense that somebody, someday, will create a dino that seems so real it might as well be. The folks behind the smash-hit Walking With Dinosaurs: The Live Experience think they’ve already done it.

Based on the BBC TV series, WWD: Live is a bells-and-whistles touring production featuring 15 life-size animatronic behemoths. The show, which features a script and set pieces tracing the beasties’ evolution, showcases the rock stars of the dino world, from T. rex to stegosaurus to Utahraptor.

Wed., Sept. 10, 7 p.m.; Thu., Sept. 11, 7 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 12, 11 a.m. & 7 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 13, 11 a.m., 3 & 7 p.m.; Sun., Sept. 14, 1 & 5 p.m., 2008
