WednesdayLooking back on writer, composer, singer and actor Nol Coward's repertoire, it's almost like the closeted gay man was writing in code. The play Private Lives and the song "Mad About a Boy" were two of his biggest hits. Selections and references from both will be included in Don Snell's tribute to the man known as "The Master." In A Private Spirit: Nol Coward and His Gal Pals, Snell plays an antiques dealer who puts on Coward's clothing and is transformed into the figure. Shano Palovish plays Coward's greatest muses, including the actresses Tallulah Bankhead and Marlene Dietrich. The play runs Sunday through Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at Theatre Too, 2800 Routh St., below Theatre Three in the Quadrangle. Tickets are $20 to $25. Call 214-871-3300.
