It's Better Than Meeting Michael Dukakis, That's For Sure

Olympia Dukakis, in the role for which she's perhaps best known. Or, like, not.

In just-announced news sure to tickle my mother, Olympia Dukakis is coming to Dallas on February 28 to take part in the Nasher Sculpture Center's NasherSalon chitchat. The cousin of at least one failed presidential candidate, the Golden Globe- and Obie-winning actress will be joined by AFI Dallas International Film Festival artistic director Michael Cain, who will no doubt ask Dukakis about, ya know, Moonstruck, Steel Magnolias, last year's Away from Her (for which Julie Christie will win the Oscar, book it) and her estimable career on stage and television.

The thing ain't cheap -- tickets are $45 for non-Nasher members, $40 for those who are, and they go on sale Sunday morning here -- but, hey, there is a Moonstruck screening after the talk. Or perhaps you'd prefer Look Who's Talking Too. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
