After staging performances of Trainspotting and Fight Club in 2009, Citizens of the Universe is shuttling farther into the dangers of space with its 2010 premiere of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. The cult classic follows seven newly acquainted thugs, all who team up for a jewel heist, which goes horribly wrong and makes them question just who tipped off the police. You'd think criminals would know better than to trust each other. The set-up kicks off on Feb. 18 and continues through Feb. 27 at Studio 1212 Theatre in Plaza Midwood. $10. Feb. 18-20, 8 p.m.; Feb. 25-27, 8 p.m. Studio 1212 Theatre, 1212 E. 10th St. 704-293-8374. www.citizensoftheuniverse.org.
