DTC’s ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ tonight at the Wyly

Masterpiece theater

There’s much to like about Dallas Theater Center’s current production of this stage adaptation of To Kill a Mockingbird. (It’s a co-production with Casa Manana; its version closed last month, and while this one has almost the same cast and crew, it’s strikingly different.) Act 2 is the money, with an unparalleled courtroom scene and a profound coda about the mysterious Boo Radley.

Several of the performances are indelible as well. Anastasia Munoz, as a clucking society lady but mostly as the white girl who accuses a hapless black man of rape, quakes with such nervous ferocity, you fear she’ll shake loose a light fixture. Akron Watson as the victim of her prejudice and James Dybas as her racist father are equally good, and solid work comes from Bob Hess, Denise Lee and Morgan Richards as the precious tomboy Scout. But the production is all but stolen by Aiden Langford as the moppet Dill, a charming kid who could spread diabetes with his sweetness.

PHOTOS: Meet Craigery Morgan, The Web’s Handsome New Lip-Syncing Viral Star

Spreading around everywhere from Reddit to RealJock.com, this video of buff Orlando-based hotty Craigery Morgan lip synching to Saturday Night Live's "Surprise Party" skit is adorbs. In just two days it's clocked nearly 700,000 views, making Morgan an insta-viral star. The former Abercrombie & Fitch store staffer grew up in Anaheim (as my social network stalking says) also recorded himself performing the hilarious "Activia" skit, and now it's your job to blow that one up too.

Did I mention I went around the web to scope my new crush? Photos inside.
