WTT presents wrenching Arthur Miller play ‘All My Sons’

If you think business ethics is only a post-TARP reality, get ready to see how profiteering has been with us forever. Arthur Miller’s classic All My Sons explores a family dynamic in the wake of an industrialist who grew fat during WWII … and the cost to him and the country. WaterTower Theatre’s artistic director Terry Martin moves to the front of the footlights to star in this production, which officially opens on Monday.

And ‘A Way with Words’ we go!

For regular listeners to NPR, the weekend dorkfest A Way with Words is punster heaven: Grant Barrett and his lesbian co-host Martha Barnette regale their fans with arcane explanations of grammar, language, syntex and etymology … words that cause seizures in some flashing back to high school and send word-nerds into ecstatic abandon. Barrett and Barnette are returning to North Texas for a live version of the show, a benefit for Aberg Center for Literacy. It should be de•light•ful (adj.) — a pleasure, something bringing delight.

Majestic Theater
1725 Elm St
7:30 p.m. $43–$63
