Project Discovery deserves it – for more than 25 years of busing schoolchildren to full-scale, professional theater productions, a costly but rewarding program that gives kids a taste of real theater-going.
A playwright’s workshop, a co-op acquisition between Dallas and Houston art museums and our annual public blow-out of light-and-sound installations downtown: How’s all that for a Wednesday roundup?
The long weekend’s so close….but we’re not there yet. More film news – an International Festival on now, a local hitting it hard in Hollywood, and a look at two new actors at the DTC.
A laptop symphony is coming to Fort Worth, the DMA digs further into its archives and words with Fly playwright Rajiv Joseph.
Fly is currently being staged by the Dallas Theater Center. It’s a new take on the Peter Pan story, and its producers have hopes of bringing it to Broadway. This being Peter Pan, the characters frequently leave their feet to fly around the Wyly Theatre. We go back stage to learn how the magic’s done.
Fly is a darker, updated Peter Pan. Debuting at the Dallas Theater Center, the musical centers more on Wendy and what it means to grow up – in a fuzzy, mythic way. But Fly has a tremendous Neverland, an Afro-Caribbean idyll of bamboo hideaways, tramp steamers and, of course, flying, singing kids.
