The question Sunday night, before an adulatory crowd at BB&T Pavilion, was: "OK, Peter Gabriel, 66, and Sting, 64, are here on tour together, the Rock Paper Scissors Tour. So what are these old gents going to do?" In a buddy-buddy chat at the start of the show, Gabriel had an answer: "We weren't sure how we're going to do this. . . . We're not leaving the stage, basically. " They didn't. Sting seemed changeless: He and the gym have been very good to each other. Gabriel was in some weird black running suit, which one attendant called "Pope Francis noir.

FOUR OR FIVE years ago, college assistants frequented Winslow Township High to recruit one of South Jersey's most dynamic prep football players. Oregon offered the kid a scholarship, as did Florida and South Carolina, of the vaunted SEC, and other tradition-laden programs such as Nebraska and Wisconsin. In the end, Penn State landed Bill Belton, but not for the lack of other schools' attempts. Maryland, for instance, put on the fullcourt press, a recruiting nugget worth mentioning years later, only because of the young assistants who led the effort on behalf of the Terrapins.

It's one thing to show up at your grandmother's apartment unexpectedly; it's quite another to do so at 3 a.m. after an extended period off the grid, filthy, penniless, and bereft. Montgomery Theater's take on Amy Herzog's 4000 Miles - the second production this season, after Philadelphia Theatre Company's - removes granny Vera's teeth and gives them to grandson Leo (Eric Wunsch), an Into the Wild -style idealist reeling from his ill-fated cross-country bicycle trip. Together, in Vera's book-lined, rent-controlled apartment, the two warily bond over love, loss, and alienation.

IT'S MARCH MADNESS, Tattle readers, and what could be madder than an attractive blonde dating Tiger Woods ? Lindsey Vonn , the alpine ski racer who could pass for ex-wife Elin Nordegren 's more athletic sister, has made it official that her friendship with Tiger has blossomed into "dating," and that's brought out the comedians, the paparazzi and the oddsmakers.

FOR MANY, Jack Klugman will always be the messy one. His portrayal of sloppy sportswriter Oscar Madison on TV's "The Odd Couple" left viewers laughing but it also gave Klugman the leverage to create a more serious character, the gruff medical examiner in "Quincy M.E. " His everyman ethos and comic timing endeared him to audiences and led to a prolific, six-decade acting career that spanned stage, screen and television. Klugman died Monday at age 90 in Northridge, outside of Los Angeles, with his wife at his side.

The stage at Plays & Players Theatre these days looks like a combination hamster cage/prison cell/Lego village, an environment that seems too tiny to hold several of the city's most outsized theatrical practitioners. The staging of bunkbeds and cartoon props may physically squeeze Dave Jadico (comic thespian, writer, 1812 Productions staple) and Aaron Cromie (director, actor, mask- and puppet-maker). But nothing gets in the way of the fast-moving, belly-flopping, arm-flailing duo in Dave & Aaron Go to Work , a silent film-inspired comedy that's equal parts Buster Keaton and The Odd Couple . The play, now in previews, opens this week.
