THEATER, PART DEUX: On Tuesday, we pointed you to the major dailies’ year in theater lists. But they aren’t the only ones who can count to 10. Dallas Voice critic Arnold Wayne Jones has posted his list of the top 10 theater moments of 2009, topping it with Theatre Britain’s Vincent River. Meanwhile, theaterjones.com has made its list a two-parter, with this podcast and Mark Lowry’s list here. Elaine Liner’s should be in the Dallas Observer this week.
AMON CARTER GOES MODERN: The Amon Carter Museum has announced its exhibition schedule for 2010. “American Moderns on Paper: Masterworks from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art” will open Feb. 27. It will be followed June 26 with “Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s–1950s.” Rounding out 2010 will be “American Modern: Abbott, Evans, Bourke-White” on Oct. 2. Visit the Amon Carter blog for more information. While you are there, be sure to check out the wintry photos in the museum’s collection that have been posted in honor of these snowy North Texas times. And while we’re talking about all things Amon Carter, be sure to listen to the This Week in the Arts podcast, whose guest is the museum’s senior curator of photography, John Rohrbach.
NYE TUNES: Since it’s already New Year’s Eve Eve, it’s high time you started prepping for tomorrow. A couple of local DJs have posted their personal lists of what they will be spinning Thursday night. On nbcdfw.com, DJ Lucy Wrubel has a list for the perfect dinner party (if you guessed that a Bananarama song would make the cut, a gold star for you!). And at quickdfw.com, Denton DJ Yeahdef has a list to get you through the entire night. Until someone comes up with a better stroke-of-midnight song than “1999,” Prince it is.
