Velázquez’ “An Old Woman Cooking Eggs” is at the Kimbell’s new show.

Wed 24 – George Bernard Shaw’s Man and Superman is rarely revived because of its length, and when it is, it’s often done without the third act (performed separately as Don Juan in Hell). However, National Theatre’s production of this philosophical comedy starring Ralph Fiennes was run at full length and won praise for feeling much lighter than its three-and-a-half hours. You can catch the broadcast at 2pm & 7pm at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St, FW. Tickets are $12-20. Call 817-923-3012.

 

Thur 25 – Just as with the senior Van Cliburn Competition, some of the eliminated contestants at the junior competition will give a free concert at the Fort Worth Public Library, so you can hear the programs they would have played in the later rounds. Best of all, you won’t have to pay to hear these, as you will with the Cliburn Junior Piano Competition. The performances start at 12:30pm at 500 W 3rd St, FW. Admission is free. Call 817-871-7701.

 

Fri 26 – The Rodgers and Hammerstein version of Cinderella keeps getting revived, even though the score is so weak that different versions of the stage show have persistently added in songs from other Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals to pad out the running time. At least the Broadway version, which runs thru Sun at Bass Hall (555 Commerce St, FW), has a new book, by Douglas Carter Beane. Tickets are $25-98. Call 817-212-4280.

 

Sat 27 – Asghar Farhadi has won lots of worldwide acclaim and an Oscar for his Iranian film A Separation and his French-language film The Past. Now, one of his older films, made in his homeland, is being shown here. About Elly owes a debt to Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’Avventura in its story of a schoolteacher who mysteriously disappears at a picnic, and it stars recognizable actors Golshifteh Farahani and Peyman Moaadi. The film runs Fri-Sun at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell St, FW. Tickets are $7-9. Call 817-738-9215.

 

Sun 28 – The Kimbell’s latest show Botticelli to Braque: Masterpieces From the National Galleries of Scotland signals its blockbuster status right there in the title. The British museum is sending its works on tour, so before they go to New York, they stop here so we can see pieces by giants like Picasso, Velázquez, Titian, Monet, Cézanne, and others. The show runs today thru Sep 20 at 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd, FW. Tickets are $14-18. Call 817-332-8451.

 

Mon 29 – What could be better than spending a Monday morning golfing? How about golfing for a good cause? Dave & Buster’s Make a Wish Golf Tournament benefits the Make-a-Wish Foundation, extending a longtime partnership between the charity and the chain of restaurant/arcades. The shotgun start is at 8am at Cowboys Golf Club, 1600 Fairway Dr, Grapevine. Registration is $105. Call 817-525-2507.

 

Tues 30 – Fort Worth Vaqueros have had a rough go of it so far this season, but they’re hoping to finish the second half of their schedule strong. After an exhibition game against Houston Dynamo’s under-23 team on Saturday, they’ll look to pick up their second home win against the Tulsa Athletics. Kickoff is at 7:30pm at Martin Field, 599 Collard St, FW. Tickets are $5-10. Call 817-200-7355.
