Golden Years

Tom Bosley is inarguably best remembered as perennial TV dad Howard Cunningham from Happy Days. Like most young thespians of his era (forging careers before you could shortcut your way to celebrity by eating the most bugs on a reality show or betrothing a pop music starlet), Bosley cut his teeth on the stage and won a Tony in 1960 for his performance in the musical Fiorello! This week Bosley revisits the theatrical form that was his training ground, portraying Michael Learned's cranky better half as Casa Mañana presents On Golden Pond at the Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun Streets in Fort Worth. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday (with 2 p.m. matinees Saturday and Sunday). Tickets range from $20 to $75.
