If you've been aching for a reason to wear your tux on a Monday, your time has come. The Sixth Annual Kevin Kline Awards are celebrated tonight, with actors, directors, costume designers, choreographers and light- and sound-design artists vying for recognition of their theatrical endeavors. Intraoffice betting has been steep and contentious, so there will be no handicapping of potential winners — also, I'm planning to run the table and buy myself a personality transplant with my winnings, and I don't want to spoil my chances. The awards program gets under way at 7:30 p.m. at the Loretto-Hilton Center on the Webster University campus (130 Edgar Road; 314-632-6121 or www.kevinklineawards.org/tickets). Tickets this year are $25, with a VIP option for $150 that includes reserved seating, a preshow reception and preferred parking. Both ticket levels get you into the post-show party, with a DJ and a cash bar.
