You've Got Jail

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.

Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sun., June 2, 2 p.m.; Fri., June 7, 8 p.m. Starts: May 24. Continues through June 8, 2013
