Been going to Theatre Three productions since I was big enough to say, "No, don't make me!," and I have never known why Theatre Three calls itself Theatre Three. Turns out, its name is derived from the three human elements that comprise the theatrical experience: author, actor and audience. Fair enough, but that doesn't explain why the acting company spells theater all highbrow the way it doesyou know, T-H-E-A-T-R-E. Turns out, the group prefers the British-English spelling to the 'Merican-English spelling. Which brings us to the kind of culture conflicts raised in TheatRE Three's world premiere presentation of The LaVidas' Landlord. Not an American-British culture clash but rather an American-Salvadoran one, as in the relationship between an English teacher landlord (American) and his political refugee tenant (Central American). As if the Bush administration even allows political asylum anymore. Anyway, I digress, but you shouldn't. Not if you decide to see Lawrence Weinstein's The LaVidas' Landlord through March 30 at T-3 (there, that fixes it), 2800 Routh St. (isn't that Ruth Street?), Suite 168. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays. For tickets and more information, call 214-871-3300 or visit theatre3dallas.com.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2:30 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: March 14. Continues through March 30, 2008
