Family Affairs

Every family is dysfunctional in its own way. If for some reason you'd forgotten that yours is no exception, the holidays were surely a great reminder. (There's a reason why family gatherings are few and far between.) The Dallas Museum of Art’s 24th annual Arts and Letters Live will kick off Monday with Texas Bound I: Family (Dys)function. Doris Roberts (Everybody Loves Raymond), Glenn Morshower (24, Dallas) will lead the cast of readers performing stories about family ties in all of their dysfunctional glory. The selected stories come from Dallas authors David Haynes, Clay Reynolds, Betty Wiesepape, Kevin Sutton and Bret Anthony Johnston. The show takes place at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the DMA (1717 N. Harwood St.). Tickets are $35 for general admission, $15 for students and $30 for DMA partners. Find more information at

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
