Weekend Top Picks for Feb 17-19: Delbert McClinton, Arlo Guthrie and More
It's guy's weekend.
Delbert "Givin' It Up For Your Love" McClinton rocks the Neighborhood Theatre in NoDa on Friday night. McClinton may not be a household name, but he has a cult-like following. People love this guy. It's always a party every time he takes the stage. Find out more.
Arlo Guthrie's tour is even called "Boys' Night Out," but one assumes women are welcome, too. The son of a folk legend is a folk legend himself. Guthrie is a brilliant songwriter and raconteur. Saturday night at McGlohon Theater. Details.
Tyler Perry's The Haves and Have Nots is in town Sunday only. There are two shows at Ovens Auditorium — at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The comedian's new stage play looks at an African-American family with plenty of material wealth but little concern for anyone else. Their views change when their maid asks for help — and they are forced to see how the other half really lives. Funny and poignant. Learn more.
Don't miss the last weekend of Queen City Theatre Company's controversial, hysterical The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told or opening weekend of the iconic Cabaret (tickets, showtimes) at CPCC. Local phenom Charlton Alicea returns to the stage as the emcee after this star-making debut last year as Angel in Theatre Charlotte's RENT.
