Just The King, Jack

Wow. Actor Jack Foltyn brings his Elvis-themed show, Just Jack, to The Cox Building Playhouse, 1517 H Ave. in Plano, and I am pretty sure you don't want to miss it. Whether it's because you love Elvis, or because you want to see this off-the-chain narcissist in action. It appears that this show is part tribute to Elvis Presley and partly, in Foltyn's words, "a love letter to my fans." With original music (has anyone else ever heard of such a thing? An Elvis-themed show with original music?!) and, apparently, "the spirit of Elvis...and the feeling of Jack." Although this seems like a potential (read: potentially entertaining) train wreck, I actually suspect that it will be a hell of a show, with man-of-the-hour Foltyn giving it all he's got to make sure nobody ever forgets him. Catch Just Jack at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. Call 972-239-3657 or visit ftaproductions.com to buy tickets online.
