Sorry for the late start today – it’s hard to write this when you have no power at your house. THINK GLOBAL, STAGE LOCAL: A guest column by local playwright Jonathan Norton has really struck a nerve over on theaterjones.com. Norton writes about the difficulty that area writers have in getting their work produced by […]
SIMPLY THE BEST: WFAA.com recently asked its users to vote in its Best Of list, taking the pulse on everything from auto repair shops to yoga studios. There were a couple of arts-related categories in there, so for what it’s worth, I’m passing along the results. In the “best museum” category, the Nasher Sculpture Center […]
Philip Haas’ new exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum — Butchers, Dragons, Gods & Skeletons — is a jaw-dropper and an eye-dazzler. Five period paintings — from a Chinese scroll and a Baroque ceiling to James Ensor’s macabre skeletons — become three-dimensional and hi-def digital.

The Undermain Theatre has produced two of his more unusual plays, Goose and Tomtom and more recently, The Black Monk. With his latest novel coming out in paperback, and The Black Monk set to return in September, THINK guest host Jerome Weeks talks to Rabe about dogs, Joe Papp and adapting Anton Chekhov.
CHANNELING WARHOL: Andy Warhol’s been dead more than 20 years, but that’s not keeping him from inspiring new legions of fans. Two of those admirers will attempt to re-create the scene of his infamous Factory on Sunday in Fort Worth. Artists Kate McDougall and Brad Simmons will team up for a photography and film project […]
With the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts set to open in three months, WFAA-TV has decided to assign arts coverage as a permanent beat to its longtime movie reviewer and Good Morning Texas regular, Gary Cogill (talking opera with Sister Helen Prejean, left). Which probably explains his appearance this morning at the Wyly Theatre […]
HONG KONG, VIA DALLAS: While scanning through The Architect’s Journal, like I do every morning (don’t you?), I came across this item announcing that Foster + Partners, Rem Koolhaas and a third designer will head up the planning of a $2.7 billion arts and culture district in Hong Kong.
