Tuesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 7 Aug 2012 7:44 AM

Today in the roundup: Theatre Three’s season begins with a laugh, the future of the Las Colinas Entertainment complex and Rhett Miller on Old 97’s longevity.


HIGH-CLASS LAUGHS: Theatre Three kicked off its 2012-13 season last night with Present Laughter. In the Noel Coward comedy, an actor prepares for a tour while dealing with a series of farcical probems. To whet your appetite for the show, the theater has put together this promo video. (Just a friendly FYI – there’s a little PG-13ish language in there.) We’ll round up the reviews as they trickle in.

A COMPLEX ISSUE: The future of the proposed Las Colinas Entertainment complex is as shaky as ever. That’s because the City of Irving allowed its contract with developer Las Colinas Group to expire on Monday. Now reports the city could be on the business end of a lawsuit.

QUOTABLE: “As it turned out, we didn’t have hits. We had a career. We got what we wished for. We’ve never had our moment in the sun. Maybe our so-called moment is 20 years of moments in the partial shade. That works for me.”
