One Singular Sensation Blah Blah Blah

Best thing ever: This is the pic of Marvin Hamlisch that accompanies his Wikipedia entry -- which also includes a 1996 movie called Dirk Nowitzki, silly hackers.

Tonight's AFI Dallas bigwig event is a gratis, come-one-come-all show-and-tell featuring legendary film and Broadway composer Marvin Hamlisch. (Sorry, but I will always love the music for A Chorus Line, and for that, I blame my mom.) And, from what we hear, this throwdown at the Nasher Sculpture Center won't be a small-time affair. We're not allowed to divulge info, as we've been sworn to 13 different flavors of secrecy, but those expecting just your run-of-the-mill talk-sing-talk kinda thing will be pleasantly surprised, as it's been turned into something a little more...ah...special. So show early, and don't be surprised if you wind up sitting next to someone you know -- or someone you probably oughta meet.

Till then, a sneek peak is provided below. The event begins at 7:30 p.m., but if you're not lined up a good hour before, you be SRO. Or SOL. --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.
