Building, Mending and Breaking Through
To (possibly) be famous, or to be blue-collar? That is the question. For Larry the Cable Guy, it's a non-issue. Then again, he's a total sham in a sleeveless flannel so perhaps I shouldn't even grant him the honor of that mention. For Troy Maxson, Negro Baseball League star-cum-garbage man and the protagonist of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning Fences, that question sums up his past, his son's future and everything in between. Part of Wilson's 10-play series on black life (and dreams) in the 20th century, Fences takes the stage at the Dallas Theater Center Wednesday through April 1. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are $15 to $60. Call 214-522-8499 or visit dallastheatercenter.org.
Tuesdays-Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: March 7. Continues through April 1
