Seeing ‘Red’ at Stage West

To some, modern artist Mark Rothko’s works were just splotches of unwieldy color, but how he influenced — and was influenced by — other artists in capturing emotion goes much deeper … for him and his protege, especially as he works on a challenging commission for the Four Seasons restaurant in NYC. Gay playwright John Logan won a Tony for Red, his investigation into the creative process and how it affects those around him, with Jim Covault as Rothko and Nate Davis as his assistant Ken.

It’s showtime! The camp classic ‘Showgirls’ gets a running commentary … live!

It’s probably the best terrible movie of all time, and the definition of a camp classic: Showgirls. But if you’ve never seen it — or simply want to see it again with the appropriate commentary — writer/performer David Schmader brings his one-night-only talk-along show to North Texas, a live show of running jokes and observations about the cult phenomenon.

The annual Turtle Creek Association Home Tour gives you the opportunity to live vicariously through the lives of the well-heeled, as six high-rise residences — including condos at The Vendome, The Warrington, The Claridge and 4011 Turtle Creek — open their doors to looky-loos to see how the other half lives. There’s even an optional after-party to rub elbows with other lovers of living.
