It’s here again: the holiday season. We’ve already stuffed ourselves and given thanks at Thanksgiving and survived possible mortal peril on Black Friday and have come away with some one-of-a-kind cool local goods on Small Business Saturday and Sunday.

Acting out

The top theatrical production of 2013 doesn’t favor glitz or pomp, but substance.


Features

Larry Laneer
A theater company that was founded to stage musicals produced the best play in 2013, and a theater company that focuses on plays gave us the best musical. Go figure.

August: Osage County

Set and shot in Oklahoma, August: Osage County loses its darkly comic teeth on the way to the silver screen. Now, it simply bites.


Drama

Rod Lott
August: Osage County is the worst kind of Oscar bait: unearned. Seemingly hoping to join the race by pedigree alone, the Oklahoma-set family drama is as patently false as a plastic worm concealing the business end of a fishing hook. At a glance, it looks like the real deal, but look closer. See, kids? All for show!

Park it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some plays shy away from hard-hitting issues. Clybourne Park is not one of those plays. The R-rated comedic production tackles topics like race and gentrification, and it won a bunch of awards as a result (a Tony and a Pulitzer, no less). See the University Theatre production 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5 in the Weitzenhoffer Theatre, 563 Elm Ave. in Norman. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students. Call 325- 4101 or visit ou.edu/finearts.
