We’re saying goodbye to the beautiful, talented, and infinitely well-dressed Charlotte of Charlotte Watch fame today. She’s leaving us for an amazing opportunity, but I, for one, will miss her. I also thank her for the opportunity to try Stampede 66 for lunch.
Tonight marks the beginning of the end for the Ochre House’s production of Old, a Matthew Posey-penned play that draws its inspiration from Shut Up, Little Man!, the true-life audio recordings of argumentative alcoholics Raymond and Pete. Posey adds Vaudeville-esque hallucinations, music, and puppetry for an experiment that’s all his own. Our critic, Lindsey Wilson, said the elements were hit or miss, but still somehow “grimly fascinating.” The show will close this weekend, so if you’re interested in giving it a shot, your time is limited. Craft and Growler is open for your imbibing pleasure before the show, and you get a beer with your theater ticket.
Also this evening, the Latino Cultural Center hosts a Spanish film festival, featuring movies that reflect the current developments in Spanish filmmaking, such as La Bicicleta, Barcelona (Una Mapa), Dias de Futbol, and Mondays in the Sun (Los Lunes al Sol). I won’t pretend to be an expert here, but I do love discoveringÂ an excellent foreign film or two. And since you’ll be in Deep Ellum, there’s no reason not to go to Cane Rosso for dinner.
For more to do tonight, go here.
