Wednesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 22 Sep 2010 7:46 AM

Today in the roundup: The Dallas Theater Center wants you, a local horror movie takes top honors and Sondheim answers his critics.


YOUR BIG BREAK: Think you’ve got what it takes to take the Wyly Theatre stage? Dallas Theater Center is holding general auditions for Cabaret and The Wiz on Sept. 28-29, and if you’ve got the moves and/or the voice, you could be in. This video has got all the details.

AND THE WINNER IS: Congratulations to Elizabeth Schieffer of Dallas, whose short film Jasper took first place in a Universal Studios horror film competition. She talks to Unfair Park about how she shot the short in an alley in one night. While you’re over there, you can watch the movie.

QUOTABLE: “If some people think my music is difficult and my lyrics are hard – well, they are.”

– Stephen Sondheim, in an interview with ahead of his appearance at the Nasher Salon Series on Thursday.

    That quote is both awesome and true. Smart guy, that Sondheim.
