Thursday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 27 Sep 2012 7:21 AM

Today in the roundup: A conversation between Freud and C.S. Lewis, the best of Fort Worth and Dirk to the rescue.


BIG TALK: For the second show of its season, Theatre Three is going all philosophical with Freud’s Last Session. In the show, a near-death Freud has a conversation with Christian writer C.S. Lewis as World War II ramps up in the background. So what might that sound like? Theatre Three offers a preview in the video above.

BEST OF THE BEST: Fort Worthy Weekly unveils its massive Best of 2012 issue this week. Of course, we always flip straight to the culture section, which provides both critics’ and readers’ picks. And the readers and critics were pretty divided, agreeing only once: that “The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Clark” at the Kimbell was the best classical museum art exhibit. The critics named a tie in that category, though, sharing the love with “Sargent’s Youthful Genius: Paintings from the Clark” at the Amon Carter.

YOU CAN COUNT ON DIRK: On Saturday night, the Goss-Michael Foundation hosted a big art auction to benefit MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation. The event was co-chaired by Anna-Sophia van Zweden and newly wed Jessica Olsson Nowitzki. So when the auction was nearing its end and looked like it might come up just short of its $1 million goal, guess which 7-footer reliably came to the rescue. Alan Peppard has the details.
