I've said before that it's often good to poke around your backyard.
For me, that's Fort Worth, Texas - an easy twenty minute drive to a variety of culture. Saturday, August 15, I saw a local production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels presented by the Stolen Shakespeare Guild (www.stolenshakespeare.org) at the Ft.Worth Community Arts Center.
The musical follows the plot of the original movie (starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin), and is silly fun. The two lead men (Ben Phillips and Trey West) had very good voices. The crew and cast, the dance ensemble, etc. obviously put a lot of work into their production.
Lots of talented folks out there, eager to entertain. Support your local theater. You'll be surprised.
