‘Hands on a Hard Body’ opens at T3

Doug Wright is the man who wrote a solo play about a transgender East German, a musical about the Beales of Grey Gardens and even one about legless mermaids, so adapting a documentary about a contest to see who can touch a pickup truck the longest doesn’t seem so odd. The Dallas native will be back in town for the opening of the 2013 Texas-set musical Hands on a Hard Body with his collaborator Amanda Green on Monday, but you can catch the show sans Wright any time throughout its monthlong run.

Theatre 3,
2900 Routh St. in the Quadrangle.
Sept. 26–Oct. 26 (in previews through Sept. 28).
