We laughed, we cried, it was better than 'Cats'!

Well, Chicken-Fried News hasn’t actually seen the musical Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. But even before its world premiere in La Jolla, Calif., last month, we knew it would be much better than Cats. And the critics agree!

‘Hazzard’ warning

Just a good ol’ boy, never meanin’ no harm, actor Tom Wopat crashes the UCO Jazz Lab.

Fresh from his “hey, isn’t that Tom Wopat?” appearance in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, actor Tom Wopat will perform two concerts Saturday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth in Edmond.

Although he’s promoting his brand-new CD, I’ve Got Your Number, and is a two-time Tony nominee for his Broadway pursuits, Wopat is perhaps best-known for playing Luke Duke on the early ’80s TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard.

But don’t just take my word for it.

“Audiences will definitely remember Tom Wopat as one of the rowdy Dukes of Hazzard boys, but he is so much more than that,” said Greg White, director and producer of UCO’s Broadway Tonight series.

The shows are scheduled for 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40. For more information, call 974-3375 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events. —Rod Lott

The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection

You’d have to be a harrrrrd man not to like it.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Now that I’ve devoured Warner Archive’s The Great Gildersleeve Movie Collection, I know who my mom was referring to all those years. It’s irrelevant for your enjoyment of the set, but Harold Peary’s Gildersleeve character proved so popular on the Fibber McGee and Molly radio program, he was spun off into his own show (and eventually TV and these films).

Million-dollar members

OKC council chooses which projects are most important with $1 million discretionary spending programs.


News

Tim Farley
If Oklahoma City Council members had a million bucks to spend any way they’d like, it turns most of them would (and will) improve public transit, roads and develop a needed “quiet zone” in downtown Oklahoma City.
