Life Sucks at Stage West Theatre
Life is, like, really hard. It’s tough being the gorgeous woman desired by all but understood by none. Or the homely girl with a heart of gold. Or the middle-aged man insightful enough to see the cavernous depth of his own failings. A quirky and deeply human new installment in the Chekhov cycle from the playwright of Stupid F*ing Bird – full of all the delight and charm that love and longing can inspire.

A Lost Leonardo at Amphibian Stage Productions
His artistic career is in ruins, and Leonardo da Vinci is renouncing his fickle Muse for good. Taking a "vow of utility," he turns to scientific exploration and accepts an appointment with Cesare Borgia, the powerful and ruthless leader. Together they will build technological wonders to change the world. But the catastrophic potential of Leonardo's creation may be more than he could have foreseen. After a brief time with Borgia, he realizes the job is not what he expected, and he returns to art to create his masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.

She has fallen in love with a sweet, smart boy from a respectable family...the most UN-Addams sounding person one could be!

Bus Stop at Theatre Arlington
In the middle of a howling snowstorm, a bus out of Kansas City pulls up at a cheerful roadside diner. All roads are blocked, and it appears the weary travelers are stuck with each other until morning. Cherie, a nightclub entertainer is the passenger with most to worry about. She's been pursued, courted and finally kidnapped by a 21 year-old cowboy with the romantic methods of an unusually headstrong bull. While she's ducking out from under his clumsy but confident embraces, the audience is introduced to the other characters and all of their quirks and conflicts. This sentimental and charming American classic will touch your heart and your funny bone.
Appropriate for ages 12 and up.

Corpse at OnStage in Bedford
Set in 1936 London, Gerald Moon's Corpse! tells the story of twin brothers (played by one actor), one of whom plots to murder the other in the most unusual circumstances. Evelyn, an out of work actor, engages the genial Irishman Powell, with a shady past, to do away with his suave, sophisticated, monied twin. Their plotting in Evelyn's Aladdin's cave of a flat is punctuated by the visits of a delightfully theatrical landlady. As with most fool proof plans, things do not go as they should and people are not what they seem! Corpse! is not so much a whodunnit as a whodunnit to whom! RATED PG-13.

October 13 through 29
Fridays and Saturdays 8:00 PM
Sundays 3:00 PM

Phantom at Artisan MAIN STAGE (Hurst)
When Erik closes his eyes to his gloomy world of ugliness, music brings to his imagination beauty, poetry, and ecstasy. Based upon what he believed to be a true story passed down through the years, Leroux penned the story of an ‘Opera Ghost’ who wreaked chaos and destruction in late 19th century Paris at the Opera Garnier. “Rhapsodic music that entrances, moves and haunts – a welcome link to musical theatre’s golden past.” Maury Yeston’s PHANTOM will be Artisan’s 7th main stage production..

Oct 6 - Nov 4

One Magic Kiss: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Artisan CHILDREN'S THEATER (Hurst)
Snow White is a magical retelling of a classic story with a contemporary twist. When all everyone can think about is who’s the “fairest in the land,” this princess shows us that ultimately beauty is about who you are and how you treat people, not how you look.

Misty Keasler: Haunt at The Modern Museum of Art
Thirteen themed haunted houses across America make up the imagery for Misty Keasler’s Haunt, 2015–2017. A driving force behind this series, which depicts interior rooms and exterior scenes, is that the subject matter takes photography to the edge of where it fails as a medium.

Friday Lecture: Dining with Casanova at Kimbell Art Museum

Along the way you will encounter rules for carving, new wares made of precious materials, and Casanova’s secret, carnal way of eating oysters.

Saturday, October 14, 6:00 PM-7:00 PM

Casanova: The Seduction of Europe at Kimbell Art Museum  
Casanova: The Seduction of Europe explores the 18th century across Europe through the eyes of one of its most colorful characters, Giacomo Casanova (1725--1798). Renowned in modern times for his amorous pursuits, Casanova lived not only in Italy, but in France and England, and his travels took him to the Ottoman Empire and to meet Catherine the Great in Saint Petersburg. Bringing together paintings, sculpture, works on paper, furnishings, porcelains, silver and period costume, Casanova will bring this world to life. Following its display in Fort Worth, the exhibition will be on view at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. This exhibition is organized by the Kimbell Art Museum, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. It is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities.

The Nile Hilton at Magnolia at The Modern
“The Nile Hilton Incident represents the type of penetrating filmmaking that only a writer-director intimately familiar with Egyptian culture but possessing an outsider's perspective could convincingly accomplish.” Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter. In this gripping film noir, a police officer in Cairo investigates the murder of a famous club singer at the Nile Hilton Hotel. What initially seems to be a crime of passion turns into something that concerns the power elite of Egypt.
Magnolia at the Modern is an ongoing series featuring critically acclaimed films. Tickets are $9; $7 for Modern members; $6 for Reel People.

Friday, October 13 - 4:00 PM, 6:00 PM & 8:00 PM

Nature/Culture at Carter Museum of American Art
We often think of nature as that which stands beyond humanity and culture as that which reflects people’s achievements. But rarely is the matter so simple. This exhibition explores different facets of the dichotomy. Besides reflecting on how nature counterpoints and enlivens our built environment, the show recognizes the more problematic use of the term, and its cousin “natural,” when applied to snapshots, portraits, and Native American cultures.
Large print labels are available for use in the exhibition.
