Dark, funny, violent and Irish — that’s McDonagh territory. Stage West presents the North Texas premiere of ‘The Lonesome West,’ the last play in Martin McDonagh’s trilogy set in the town of Leenane, a place that can drive a young priest to drink. The father of the Connor brothers has died — suddenly, of course — and now the pair of them are fighting over every little thing. Jerome Weeks reviews.
The controversy over what was originally a Tarleton State student’s production of the Terrence McNally play, Corpus Christi, has, ahem, come back to life.

Jerome Weeks asks, how convincing is this portrait of harmony and dissonance?
The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History opens Nov. 20, and they’re still getting the new Legorreta+Legorreta-designed building ready. But an early peek at the Noble Planetarium finds the first ZKP-4 in the Southwest fully functioning and traveling to galaxies far, far way.

When Calvin Littlejohn came to Fort Worth in 1934, white newspapers wouldn’t run photos of African-Americans. Ironically, segregation gave Littlejohn his life’s work: chronicling Fort Worth’s middle-class black community.
