    Tony 'n' Tina's Nuptials Take the Cake - Also: not much to celebrate in Risk Theater's Slaughterhouse Five

    Spotless Acting in Stage West's Clean House - Also: T3 hopes to clean up again with I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change

    From a chance remark overheard at a party, East Coast playwright Sarah Ruhl was inspired to create The Clean House, now playing at Fort Worth's Stage West. It's a gentle and oddly persuasive play--very funny too--about the relationship between women...

    Point and Chop - No amount of sharpening can save this dull blade

    Axes to Grind - The Guitar Hero frenzy careens toward overkill

    There's a point at which every fad overstays its welcome. Could it be that Guitar Hero is already just a sour note from being booed out of America's living room? For evidence, look no further than the plethora of GH cash-in products hawked at thi...
