What a Doll

A lot of people think little girls are just interested in frilly toys and the like. But really, they're pretty deep. Take Barbie Live! In Fairytopia for example. The play stars an actress playing Barbie starring as a fairy named Elina. How meta is that? Little girls clearly love peeling away the layers of reality to get to the very heart of their own existential crises. Coming soon: Derrida Barbie and Freud Ken! Get pomo with Barbie Live! at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth. Shows run through August 12. Showtimes are 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $19.50 to $55.00. Call 817-212-4280 or visit casamanana.org.
