Brothers Benny and Phil, played by Joe Cucinotti of Allen and Charles Bates of Dallas, go from extras in a set of 3,400 to director and star as they take over the larger-than-life film Exeunt Omnes--more epic than Gone With the Wind and Ben-Hur--in the play Epic Proportions. The cast also includes other notables from the D-FW area including Benny's true love, Anna McLaughlin of Dallas, as well as thousands of characters represented by Grisel Cambiasso of Flower Mound, Matthew J. Fisher of Murphy, Patrick Lynwood Henry of Glen Rose and Charles Catty of Dallas. Add in a misfiring burning bush, gladiator battles and plagues, and you're in for one bizarre adventure. Showtimes for the play are 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with additional 2 p.m. matinees on Saturdays through August 8. Tickets are $15 to $18.
