Care to Dance?

Ah, the honky-tonk dive is a great source for storytelling. A rich mine of characters, relationships, problems and story arcs await and are explored in Stage West's presentation of Nice People Dancing to Good Country Music. A comedy by Lee Blessing set in a Houston bar, the play deals with human faults and the age-old story of taking a chance on new love. Showings run through June 23 (7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays). Stage West is located at Theatre Northwest, TCC Northwest Campus in Fort Worth.
