Institutionalize Your Date

Married people live dangerous lives. Relying on (and compromising with) one other person for all of eternity sounds risky to the unwed, so James Braly throws the doors of the espoused wide open in Life in a Marital Institution (20 Years of Monogamy in One Terrifying Hour). Part walk down memory lane, part cautionary tale of how to not piss off the wife, Life in a Marital Institution should be a major part of every couple’s date-night agenda this week. Presented by Fort Worth Performing Arts, the critically acclaimed one-man show makes audiences embarrassingly happy for six nights beginning at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at McDavid Studio, 301 E. 5th St. in Fort Worth. Tickets cost $27.50 to $38.50. Call 877-212-4280 or visit
