Ladies, Mind Yer Fortunes

At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, check out Ken Ludwig's Leading Ladies at Theatre Arlington on 305 W. Main St. in Arlington. The show is about some actors trying to steal a fortune from a rich, dying woman. Ya know, like Nick Cannon is trying to do with Mariah Carey. The two male actors from Leading Ladies end up disguising themselves as ladies (Why does that always seems to mean wearing muumuus, giant hats and pearls?) to get the old woman's fortune, Some Like It Hot-style. Oh, and it's set in Shakespearean times, so manage your "funny" expectations now. Yes, you should definitely bring your mom. Tickets will set you back between $15 and $19 depending on how close you want to be to the moose knuckles. Front row, bring hand sanitizer. Call 817-275-7661 or visit theatrearlington.org.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: June 4. Continues through July 3, 2010

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.
