Colin Currie is sure to ’phone in his performance with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic — vibraphone, that is. The percussionist is adept at solos on the marimba, blocks and drum sets, too, so no wonder the event carries the title of Motion & Emotion. Copland and Tchaikovsky are among those on tap for the 8 p.m. Saturday concert at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. Tickets are $25- $52. Call 232-7575 or visit okcphilharmonic.org.
Two cops, three crooks, a local accountant and the mayor in two adjoining hotel rooms? No, it’s not The Village People Go to Vegas. It’s Paul Slade Smith’s rollicking comedy Unnecessary Farce! Laughing commences at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Carpenter Square Theatre, 800 W. Main St., now in its 30th anniversary season. Tickets are $5-$20. Call 232-6500 or visit carpentersquare.com.
Hear ye, hear ye! Benjamin Franklin lives! Okay, not quite.
