    Standard Transmission - Tune up and laugh at Stanton's Garage; a fun ride into Bombay Dreams

    The day after seeing Stanton's Garage at Contemporary Theatre of Dallas, I visited an aunt and uncle who are up in years. They'd just been out in 100-degree heat to have their 1994 Toyota Camry inspected, and it had been an ordeal. The car has only 3...

    Unhinged - DTC's Illusion plays ugly tricks; Communicating Doors plays with time

    You could call The Illusion a comedy. You could call ipecac an after-dinner liqueur. That doesn't make those descriptions accurate. The Illusion is Dallas Theater Center artistic director Richard Hamburger's bitter dose of theatrical medicine after...

    Ballsy - Take Me Out swings for the fences, then slowly runs out of game

    Curl Up and Die - Steel Magnolias: To the salon with the sisterhood of graveling rants

    The Steel Magnolias are in bloom again. Robert Harling's all-woman 1987 play, full of sap, sass and silliness, is a favorite of regional theaters large and small. Despite its hokey writing and its jolting second-act turn from light comedy to weepy tr...
