T Bone N' Weasel @ Herberger Theater Center The two recently paroled heroes of Jon Klein's play T Bone N Weasel hit the roads of rural South Carolina in pursuit of their future -- gainful employment or whatever else presents itself -- and confront discrimination, people who take advantage of them, bizarre temptations, and picaresque mayhem aplenty. What could be tragic is brisk if thought-provoking comedy in a script that remains popular at regional theaters from Baltimore to Sacramento to Dallas to Minneapolis.

It was also a 1992 TV-movie starring Christopher Lloyd and the late Gregory Hines, but you're sure to have more fun at iTheatre Collaborative's live production of T Bone N Weasel, the company's 2012-13 season closer, continuing through Saturday, June 8, on the Kax Stage at Herberger Theater Center. Curtain is 8 p.m. Friday, May 25. Tickets are $16 to $20. -- Julie Peterson
