Not your ordinary Old West tale, the 1867-set Mr. and Mister is a love story between a rancher and a teacher, both men. Said playwright Robert Matson, “The play takes place at a time when homosexuality wasn’t even a word.” The original drama premieres at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Actors Casting & Talent Services, 30 N.E. 52nd, and ends March 30. Tickets are $15. Call 286-9298 or visit tarsplace.com.

Gazette staff
Oxford Dictionaries sent the Internet into a tizzy last week when they announced that “twerk” and “selfie” would be added to Oxford Dictionaries Online. Word spread like a meme as the news appeared on sites such as Mashable, TechCrunch, The New York Times blog The Learning Network, The Washington Post website and, of course, Fox News — not to mention its appearance on The Oklahoman’s website, NewsOK, with the headline, “Thanks, Miley: ‘Twerking’ Now in Dictionary.”
