My mom always made mealtime allowances for items like Fruit Roll-Ups and Dr Pepper. Likewise, wholesome public programming was not part of my television diet, as I consumed the plentiful entertainment calories of Nickelodeon. But occasionally, I craved something healthy. My publicly funded drug of choice came in the form of Super Grover. His varying self-esteem issues ("cutest monster in the world?") and affinity for red phone booths made him, in my youthful opinion, the only Muppet with half a brain. The blue monster is coming to Nokia Theater, 1001 Performance Place in Grand Prairie, as part of Sesame Street Live's Super Grover: Ready for Action! this Thursday through Sunday. Performance times vary, and tickets are $16 to $30. Call 972-854-5111 for details.
