Jeff Bowen and Hunter Bell were trying to come up with an idea for a musical, one that would change the world, transform people's lives and win Tonys. They sat around together trying to come up with ideas until they noticed that their conversations about their ideas were more interesting than the ideas themselves. That's how [title of show] was born. It's a show about what it's like to write a show, and if you've ever stared at a blank computer screen or held a guitar wishing for inspiration, you'll get where they are coming from. The show didn't win a Tony award, but it was nominated for one, and they sing about those creative vampires we all know so well. Catch [title of show] starting 7:30 p.m. Monday at Theatre Three, 2800 Routh St. Tickets are $25 to $30. Call 214-817-3139 or visit theatre3dallas.com.
