In 1722, Johann Sebastian Bach won the position of church organist at Leipzig’s Thomaskirche, a job that gave him financial security for life and allowed him to compose most of the music that he’s known for today. Itamar Moses’ Bach at Leipzig makes comedy out of the audition process, imagining five rival composer/musicians who also think they can win the job. Circle Theatre’s production of this play runs Aug 19-Sep 18 at 230 W 4th St, FW. Tickets are $20-30. Call 817-877-3040.
