‘Hands on a Hard Body’ opens at T3

Doug Wright is the man who wrote a solo play about a transgender East German, a musical about the Beales of Grey Gardens and even one about legless mermaids, so adapting a documentary about a contest to see who can touch a pickup truck the longest doesn’t seem so odd. The Dallas native will be back in town for the opening of the 2013 Texas-set musical Hands on a Hard Body with his collaborator Amanda Green on Monday, but you can catch the show sans Wright any time throughout its monthlong run.

DEETS:
Theatre 3,
2900 Routh St. in the Quadrangle.
Sept. 26–Oct. 26 (in previews through Sept. 28).
