Mullally it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
When you have an Emmy to your name, you’re kind of a big deal. When you have two Emmys to your name, you’re a really big deal. Oklahoma City-raised Megan Mullally is a really big deal, having won two Emmys for her role in TV’s Will & Grace. She will return to OKC with her “edgy, comedic rock show” Nancy & Beth 8 p.m. Thursday at the Plaza Theatre, 1725 NW 16th St. Tickets are $25. Call 524-9312 or visit lyrictheatreokc.com.

New Ado

City Rep places Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in frontier Oklahoma.


Performing Arts

Larry Laneer
Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre’s Much Ado About Nothing, now at the Freede Little Theatre, is one of the most neatly acted and clearly presented productions of a Shakespeare play seen around here in a long time. It’s also a comedy that is practically devoid of humor.

Minority report

Local theater companies struggle to find a pool of diverse racial groups for roles in some plays.


Performing Arts

Mark Beutler
Casting someone like Carrie Underwood in a production of Dreamgirls, which features a mostly black cast, would probably be a bit of a stretch. But when it comes to the theater community, especially in Oklahoma City, finding a racially diverse pool of talent for certain shows is difficult, according to local casting directors. Whether looking for an actor who is black, Asian or Hispanic, casting directors said Oklahoma City just doesn’t have enough actors to fill certain roles.
