Music


Chris Stapleton with Jamey Johnson and Yola at Erwin Center. Big-bearded, big-voiced singers Stapleton, whose recent albums have topped the charts and won Grammy and CMA awards, and Johnson, a mainstay of Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic, represent the high upside of country music in the past decade. The ringer is Yola, a soulful British singer whose 2019 solo debut, “Walk Through Fire,” earned her a Grammy best new artist nomination. $49.75-$99.75. 7 p.m. March 12. 1701 Red River St. uterwincenter.org — Peter Blackstock


Theater & dance


“House.” In this popular one-man show starring Ken Webster, Victor, the hero of Daniel MacIvor's dark and furiously funny piece, takes you on a whirlwind tour of the offices, circus tents, supermarkets, Ramada Inns, sewers, dreams and houses that compose the hallucinatory landscape of his life. “House” was originally produced by Hyde Park Theatre in 1998, 2001 and 2009 and has returned anew. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday through March 28. $24-$28. 511 W. 43rd St. hydeparktheatre.org
