We like to think everybody who gets stranded in an airport indulges in fantasies of some gorgeous guy you used to know showing up carrying a Statue of Liberty-sized torch for you. Steven Dietz's play Shooting Star, about former lovers who find themselves and each other while snowed in at an airport somewhere in the Midwest, is proof we ain't alone here. The play premiered in 1983 and works totally on the basis of a simpler world where two people fill each other in about the crazy ways people can change, and fall in love all over again. Shooting Star, playing at the Water Tower Theatre at the Addison Theatre Centre, 15650 Addison Road, takes the stage 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $20. Call 972-450-6232 or visit watertowertheatre.org for more information.
Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Starts: May 28. Continues through June 26, 2011
