The top local stories this evening from KERA News:
The Dallas Theater Center recently presented Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest" – but a Tempest like no other North Texas has seen. Professional actors were joined onstage by one hundred regular citizens, plus local marching bands and choirs.
This kind of show will be an annual project at the theater called Public Works Dallas. Art & Seek’s Hady Mawajdeh and Jerome Weeks saw ‘The Tempest’ and debated its highs and lows for this week’s State of the Arts.
- Get ready to spring forward this weekend. Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 a.m. Sunday. As KERA’s Molly Evans reports, some legislators at the Texas Capitol want this to be the last time we have to change our clocks.
- On Sunday, the Dallas Museum of Art is opening the first exhibition curated by the new director Augustin Arteaga. Arteaga comes to Dallas by way of Mexico City, so it’s fitting that his first curated show is a major exhibition exploring Mexican Modern Art.
- The Dallas St. Patrick’s Day Parade will take over Greenville Avenue tomorrow. As KERA’s Krystina Martinez reports, the big party means a lot of road closures.
