Tuesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 21 Jun 2011 7:53 AM

Today in the roundup: Chatting with the stars of Spamalot, turf wars in the local film biz and unearthing a lost masterwork.


TALKING PYTHON: You’ve got a few more chances to catch Spamalot at the Music Hall at Fair Park. The show won the 2005 Tony for best musical and should be very familiar to fans of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. But if you need a little primer, has posted video interviews with two of the stars of the show.

QUIBBLES ON THE SET: Dallas may be getting a fancy new film and television production studio on South Lamar, thanks to a $235,000 economic development grant. Great, right? Not if you’re The Studios at Las Colinas, which isn’t too happy about the potential competition from the south. Unfair Park asked The Studio’s chief business officer about the new studio, and, predictably, she was less than thrilled.

LOST AND FOUND: In October, the Kimbell Art Museum will stage “Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome,” which collects 60 works made by artists who were influenced by the Italian master. And the curators might poke around to see if there is another painting to add to the show. That’s because a previously unknown Caravaggio has turned up in Britain. That’s significant, considering that only about 50 of his works are still around.
