Monday Update, September 26

Willamson County News update

Mark Norwood’s defense attorneys William Browning and Bradley Urrutia field questions from the media Thursday while private investigator Mark Gillespie and Mr. Norwood's sister Connie Hoff look on, right. On Friday, a jury found Mr. Norwood guilty of the 1988 killing of Austin resident Debra Baker. He had previously been convicted of killing Christine Morton, the wife of Michael Morton, who was wrongfully sentenced by a Williamson County jury of killing her and spent more than two decades behind bars before his 2011 exoneration. Andy Sharp

It's Only A Play Set on the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; and the playwright's best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy. Through October 9 at Sam Bass Theatre, 600 Lee St., Round Rock.

 

Gabriel, A Polemic Gathered around the Sabbath dinner, four young women challenge their notions of what it is to be a woman of God in this day and age. Yes? No? Do we have free will?

Through October 2 7:30pm Friday & Saturday; 3pm Sunday
