Despite what modern science has proved, the fictional world of the Flintstones
continues to shape mankind's destiny. Sure, dinosaurs were long dead before humans hit the scene, but a society benefiting from domesticated dinos is so darn appealing that it's been made into a reality — sort of. One show has fabricated robotic reptilian replicas and put them to work for education. Spy the subservience tonight at "Walking With Dinosaurs — The Live Experience,"
at the Sprint Center (1407 Grand). This BBC-inspired live show stars 15 giant dino droids that stomp their way through realistic re-enactments, revealing their evolutionary history. The cast is a mechanical who's who of the Triassic through Cretaceous periods. There's the stegosaurus, the brachiosaurus and the tyrannosaurus rex, to name just a few. The show begins at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $29.50-$72.50. For more information, see sprintcenter.com
