    'The Metromaniacs'

    Tools

    Oct. 19-21, 7:30-9:30 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 22, 2-4 p.m.

    Move over, Kim Kardashian — poets are the sought-after celebrities in David Ives’ uproarious comedy The Metromaniacs. Adapted from an 18th-century French farce by Alexis Piron, the play follows an aspiring poet who becomes infatuated with the works of an enigmatic female writer. The twist? The lady is, in fact, a middle-aged man pulling a trick on the poetry establishment. A Middlebury Actors Workshop production transports theatergoers to a place that director Melissa Lourie calls “a purer world, where characters are drunk on language and high-comic passion.” at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. Middlebury Area (map). $12-22.

    Fri., Oct. 20, 7 p.m.

    If you’ve ever listened to recordings by Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings or Dolly Parton, you’ve probably heard the bass stylings of Norbert Putnam. In addition to playing on more than 9,000 tracks, Putnam began producing in 1970, lending his ear to tunes such as Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville” and Kris Kristofferson’s 1981 breakup album To the Bone. The hit maker, who was part of the original Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, heads to Saint Michael’s College on Friday for an afternoon bass summit with fellow four-string aficionado Mike Gordon of Phish. That evening, Putnam presents “Muscle Shoals to Margaritaville: An Evening With Norbert Putnam,” a multimedia talk with a focus on his 2017 autobiography Music Lessons: A Musical Memoir. at McCarthy Arts Center, Saint Michael's College in Colchester. Chittenden County (map). Free.

    Fri., Oct. 20, 8 p.m.

    Since its inception in 1971, Pilobolus dance theater has existed outside of the box. For starters, it was formed by a group of Dartmouth College students with no dance training. Possessing a strong commitment to collaboration, the troupe crosses creative disciplines in its quest for new forms of expression — and it has reaped rewards. Among other accolades, the company has earned a Grammy Award nomination, a TED fellowship and a Dance Magazine Award as well as spots on popular TV programs such as “Ellen” and “60 Minutes.” The dancers bring a blend of artistry, athleticism and drama to the Barre Opera House with a program that includes the stirring piece “On the Nature of Things.” at Barre Opera House in Barre. Barre/Montpelier (map). $28-49.
