The character finds the clique of college gays who are worse than any mean girl. With a “no uglies allowed” policy, out writer John-Michael explores a different kind of homophobia.

The sweetest day
Dallas Summer Musicals clearly did not save the best for last this weekend. For their 2012 Curtain Call Gala, they bring in star of stage and screen Vanessa Williams. What’s more to say beyond that? Dinner, auctions, cocktails and dancing almost seem secondary to her taking the stage to perform, but no doubt will help fill the night with all the right stuff.

Unless you were one of the lucky ones a few decades back, The Music of ABBA tribute show is going to be the closest to hearing the Swedish pop gems live and that’s not so bad. This band delivers the goods to astounding perfection.
