See Them, Feel Them, Hear Them: DTC's Tommy is Oso Closo to Opening

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
