Frampton, still alive

Guitar legend Peter Frampton is scheduled to perform on his “Never Ever Say Never” tour, Tuesday, starting at 7:30 p.m., at the Eccles Theater, 131 S. Main, Salt Lake City. Frampton became an overnight star in 1976, with the release of “Frampton Comes Alive!” He won a Grammy for pop instrumental album in 2007 for “Fingerprints.” And last year, he played on two tracks of Dolly Parton’s album “Rockstar.” Frampton, 73, was diagnosed five years ago with degenerative inclusion body myositis, which causes muscle atrophy, so he performs while seated.

‘Bald Sisters’ premieres

Salt Lake Acting Company, located at 168 W. 500 North, Salt Lake City, is staging the regional premiere of “Bald Sisters,” a play by Vichet Chum. SLAC describes the comedy drama as a story that “pits sister against sister, old against new, right against ritual, and prayer against... karaoke.” The production debuts Wednesday, and runs through May 5.
