‘Crimes of the Heart’
Thursday, Oct. 10, through Sunday, Oct. 13
Homecomings sometimes come with a bit of drama, and that’s the case when the Magrath sisters reunite in Beth Henley’s Pulitzer Prize-winning "Crimes of the Heart." Gathering in their small Mississippi town around their youngest sister, who just shot her abusive husband, the two older siblings confront their own pasts. Concordia College presents the family drama, which starts at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, in Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre. Tickets are $5 or $10.

Contemporary Christian singer Chris Tomlin has won 23 GMA Dove Awards, a Grammy and earned two platinum albums for his worship music, but it was recent praise he received that made headlines. The singer was invited onstage by country's Florida Georgia Line during a September show in Atlanta. Tyler Hubbard called the Christian star to the stage for what he called “truly a full circle God-thing” as they jammed on “How Great is Our God” and “How Great Thou Art.” Tomlin will bring his praise music to the Fargodome, 1800 N. University Drive, on Thursday. Pat Barrett opens the show at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $20 to $75.

As Deuces Wild Dueling Pianos, pianomen Dave Eicholz and Ted Manderfeld have been making audiences laugh, sing and clap along to the hits for more than 15 years.

Tom Segura brings the laughs back to Fargo on Saturday when he plays the Fargo Civic Center, 207 Fourth St. N. Best-known for his specials on Comedy Central and Netflix, the stand-up has recently teamed up with his comedian wife, Christina Pazsitzky, for a podcast, “Your Mom’s House.” Segura’s own brand of family humor isn’t really for family audiences, but his off-color observations will have fans rolling in the aisles. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., with tickets ranging from $34 to $98.
