Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

If the country-music industry were a high school, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill would be homecoming King and Queen. The strikingly good-looking superstar couple seem to be living the good life: They have been married for almost 10 years and have three darling daughters, and their combined solo careers have collectively seen the sale of more than 60 million albums and dozens of Top 10 and No. 1 hits, including a duet, “It’s Your Love.”

In 2000, McGraw and Hill joined musical forces for their first Soul2Soul Tour. Six years later, they’ve embarked on a second joint tour, called Soul2Soul II. The stage setup will be in the round and in the center of the arena, all the better for the couple to sing some you-did-me-wrong ballads back to back. The twosome will most likely run through the gamut of their solo hits in addition to their duets.

Catch them while they’re hot, and before they make a change in their careers: McGraw (a Dem) has remarked a few times that he’d like to run for office (perhaps for the position of governor of Tennessee) 10 years down the road.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will perform at the Pepsi Arena (51 S. Pearl St., Albany) on Tuesday (June 13) at 7:30 PM. Tickets for this show are $46-$86. For more information or to order tickets, call 487-2000.

Tuesdays With Morrie

This weekend, Curtain Call Theatre will present the regional premiere of Tuesdays With Morrie. The play is based on the international best seller by Mitch Albom of the same name about a retired teacher and his former student. The student (Albom) rediscovered his college professor (Morrie) toward the end of Morrie’s life, and they spent time together every Tuesday through the last few months of the teacher’s life, and their time together was chronicled in Albom’s book. The story was adapted for stage by American playwright Jeffrey Hatcher.

The Curtain Call Web site promises that the play is “insightful and delightfully funny, a master’s class in the meaning of life.” Any play that can serve as a tutorial on the meaning of life is a good one by our standards.

Tuesdays With Morrie opens tomorrow (Friday, June 9) and runs through July 1 at Curtain Call Theatre (210 Old Loudon Road, Latham). Tickets are $20. Call 877-7529 for more information or to make reservations.

Bindlestiff Family Cirkus

There aren’t any animals in the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus, so our friends the animal-rights activists can settle down. Also, there’s no resemblance to the so-numbingly- normal-it’s-bizarre daily cartoon The Family Circus, so if you like that sort of thing, stay home. What you do get with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus is, according to their own description, “a unique hybrid of vaudeville, circus, burlesque and sideshow.”

Along with cofounders Stephanie Monseu and Keith Nelsen, a number (as yet undetermined) of other performers will try to dazzle patrons of Red Square tonight with fire-eating, sword-swallowing (as in the picture here), juggling, clowning about and generally freakish tomfoolery for adults.

Bindlestiff Family Cirkus will perform tonight (Thursday, June 8) at 8 PM at Red Square (388 Broadway, Albany). Tickets are $15, $10 if you dress creatively. For more information, call the club at 432-8584.
