I'm Sorry, Doctah!

At 8 p.m. this Saturday, Brookhaven College, 3939 Valley View Lane in Farmers Branch (bring your papers), is putting on a stage production of Alan Menken and Howard Ashman's Little Shop of Horrors in the School of the Arts Performance Hall (Building C), and you should go see it. It's basically your typical musical plot, nerd meets hot chick, hot chick likes nerd, and a plant called Audrey II that feeds on people while singing R. Kelly-inspired tunes brings the two lovers together during a total eclipse of the sun. Pretty standard stuff, really. Makes you ask yourself the big life questions such as, "If I had the chance to feed any person on the planet—living or dead—to a giant plant, who would I feed it?" (Because, obviously you would have to feed it someone. That part isn't a choice.) and "Where is Rick Moranis now?" (Incidentally, he's doing voice acting for the movie Brother Bear 2. Yeah. There's a sequel.) Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students and Grandpa. Call 972-860-4118 or visit brookhavencollege.edu.
Sat., July 7, 8 p.m.
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.
Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
