Kevin Moriarty, installed as Dallas Theater Center artistic director in June '07, makes his debut as DTC director later this month with, of all things, The Who's Tommy. Moriarty also makes his debut as DTC spokesman (not counting his video chitchat with Elaine in April) with this just-posted pitch for Tommy, which was extended through September 28 weeks before it even opened. Interesting note: DTC has hired the very theatrical, kinda classic-rocking Denton band Oso Closo to do the Who. Interested, very interested, though I've always been more of a Quadrophenia kinda guy myself. --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.
