SAT | FEB 15

“THE WRONG MAN”

If you’ve ever been interested in an indie-musical inspired by a character in a Johnny Cash song, you can rejoice! Writer and musician Ross Golan uniquely tells the story of a man wrongly accused of the crime committed in “Folsom Prison Blues.” It’s an acoustical folk tale with sounds that echo both Tom Waits and R. Kelly. The story will stay with you just as much as the songs will get stuck in your head. Directed and choreographed by Lee Martino. Sat. 8 p.m. $34. Through March 16. Skylight Theatre, 1816 ½ North Vermont Ave., Los Angeles. (213) 761-7061. ” target=”_blank”>simonandstingtour.com.

“SANDRA BERNHARD AND THE FLAWLESS ZIRCONS: SANDYLAND”

If you were a respected and talented comedian, singer, author, actor and monologist, you’d have a land named after you, too! From Martin Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy” to a recurring role on legendary sitcom “Roseanne,” to off-Broadway successes, Bernhard understands entertaining. She will sing, muse about her teenage daughter and probably be flawless. Sat. 8 p.m. $25-$60 (general), $15 (UCLA students). Royce Hall at UCLA, 340 Royce Drive, Los Angeles. (310) 825-2101. ” target=”_blank”>wbtla.org.
