Wed 27 – We can hear the half-baked generalizations coming in the title of Robert Dubac’s one-man show The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron? This performance promises more of the “Group X does this, Group Y does that” school of comedy, though we have to admit we laughed at Dubac’s retort to women who complain of being objectified: “You never hear a woman ask, ‘Does this dress make me look intelligent?’ ” The show runs today thru Sun at McDavid Studio, 301 E 5th St, FW. Tickets are $30-40. Call 817-212-4280.
