TeCo’s gay play fest starts

Both TeCo Theatrical Productions and Uptown Players are host gay Pride play fests this month, with TeCo getting started a day early with its lineup of six short (under 20 minutes) queer-themed plays. Audiences get to vote on their favorites, and first, second and third-place prizes will be awarded. Pictured is one of the entries, Copeville by local playwright Addison DeWitt, based on a true story about a lesbian in a small Texas town who learns about the Native American legend of the Two Spirits and then begins to make sense of her life.

DEETS: Bishop Arts Theatre, 215 S. Tyler St. $18–$22. BishopArtsTheatre.org.

‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ skips Calvary, heads right into Fort Worth

Jesus Christ Superstar really did help change the shape of modern musical theater. It was one of the first rock operas, one to pick an otherwise unlikely topic and it introduced audiences to the team of Webber and Rice, who would define a style of musical for generations. Casa Manana presents this new version, with features as King Herod B.J. Cleveland, who — despite working harder and wider than James Brown — has not been on the Casa stages in 22 years. Welcome back, Beej!
