This panel discussion will revolve around the theme of artificial intelligence, a topic explored in Black Flag Theatre Company’s regional premiere of “Uncanny Valley” at Cox Playhouse in Downtown Plano. The playwright, Thomas Gibbons, will be on the panel, along with thought leaders from Capital One.
In 1936, an anti-drug propaganda film called Reefer Madness was released, portraying the disasters that ensue when some teenagers decide to try “marihuana” — otherwise known as the devil’s drug. In the 1970s, the film was rediscovered and became a cult classic due to its over-the-top portrayal of the alleged dangers of smoking weed, which include death, destruction, madness and … [gasp!] jazz. Inspired by the original film, this tongue-in-cheek musical comedy takes the fun to a “higher” level, memorializing the melodrama in songs that range from Broadway-style show-stoppers to swing tunes. It would be a big mistake to (puff, puff) pass on this Art Centre Theatre production of Reefer Madness: The Musical. Age 18 and older, please.
Special performance at 7:30 pm on Thursday, April 20th! Runs three weekends at the Art Centre Theatre, April 14 – 29. Tickets available here.
Nothing is sacred in this raucous send-up of small town vice, politics, and religion. Welcome to the best, ah, "pleasure palace" in the great state of Texas, the Chicken Ranch (in business since the mid-1800s!). This crazy look into the inner workings of Miss Mona's bordello and her panoply of patrons - mayors, senators, governors ... entire football teams, along with the machinations of the ever-watchful Watchdog, who doggedly uses his righteous television cameras to try and expose the institution, is a laugh a minute with some clever and catchy tunes. Dance a little sidestep to Art Centre Theatre!
$15. ACT member discounts apply if you buy in advance using their online system. Tickets available here.
