Wednesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 8 Feb 2012 8:02 AM

Today in the roundup: A French farce gets a new translation, a preview of El Corazon and Main St. Fort Worth Arts Fest announces lineup.


A WORLD PREMIERE: MBS Productions is presenting the world premiere of a new translations of the French comedy The Game of Love and Chance. In it, a young woman switches identities with her maid in order to better size up a potential suitor. Only trouble is, he’s done the same thing to get a better look at her. “The Game of Love and Chance is a classic neoclassic piece of fluffy fun,” David Novinski writes on “Everything will turn out all right in the end, of course, but not before a good deal of hand-holding, hand-wringing and hand ringing.” M. Lance Lusk was also charmed. “Mark-Brian Sonna, the man with many chapeaux in this company, has executed a smooth and beautiful translation of the play from the French which preserves all of the delicious nuances and raciness of the original that many modern versions have lost,” he writes on Front Row. And there’s more good news – KERA members are eligible for buy one, get one tickets.

LOVE IS ON THE WALL: The Bath House Cultural Center is playing host to the 18th Annual El Corazon exhibition. The show features work in various media all inspired by love. For a preview, check out this slide show.

MAIN ST. LINEUP: We’re just about three months or so away from Main St. Fort Worth Arts Festival, usually a great way to spend a weekend (weather permitting). The street will be lined with the work of 225 artists, plucked from 1,475 submissions. More on the plans for the weekend over at
