OKG7 things to do
See the beauty of our technological culture in a new oil painting exhibit by longtime local artist George Oswalt at JRB Art at The Elms, 2810 N. Walker.
You could see a future gold medalist — and, therefore, potential Wheaties box model — when the Oklahoma River plays host to the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials for Flatwater Sprint in canoe and kayak on Friday and Saturday at the Boathouse District, 725 S. Lincoln. Also on Saturday, kids age 8 to 16 can go for a short paddle with a top U.S. athlete. Admission is free. Visit boathousedistrict.org.
If you love Sherlock like I love Sherlock, you might be interested in this filmed play showing tonight and tonight only: Danny Boyle’s Frankenstein.
To steal all the details from our own Gazette:
“It’s alive! It’s alive! National Theatre Live, to be exact, which presents the monster hit Frankenstein on theater screens at 7 p.m. tonight and tomorrow only at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, Cinemark Tinseltown USA and Norman’s Hollywood Spotlight 14. Directed by Danny Boyle (127 Hours), this whacked-out adaptation stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Dark Shadows’ Jonny Lee Miller. Visit fathomevents.com.”
It’s my understanding at the two switch roles midway through the play, which sounds like Something to See, provided you’re not seeing anything at deadCENTER, that is. —Rod Lott
