Romeo wears tennis shoes in Baylor Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet,” but that’s not an invented insult to give to Tybalt, who’s in a Dolce and Gabbana-inspired jacket. There’s an electric guitar or two as well, and costume designs that mix Italian Renaissance accents with lines from contemporary Italian haute couture.

The first feature from writer-director Cory Finley, “Thoroughbreds” is a darkly comic tale — shot through with the hard-boiled fatalism of film noir — about two teenage girls in an affluent Connecticut suburb of New York.

Unlike many classical musicians, an organist can’t travel with his or her instrument, but has to perform on someone else’s. At the same time, it takes an organist’s individual talent and interpretation to bring that instrument to life, notes Grammy Award-winning organist Paul Jacobs.

In writing last week about painter Amy Sherald, I mentioned she still remembers her first school trip to an art museum. Her experience is a perfect example of how for many young children, a visit like that, or the first time hearing a real live symphony orchestra, are remembered for a lifetime. Occasionally those with a limited definition of education will want to know what such costly diversions have to do with education. (It’s curious that this is asked far less about football.) When those wondering are the ones holding the district purse strings, field trips to museums often wind up cut.

Precision. Style. Chanting. The thudding rhythm of a dozen or more boots hitting the stage at the same time. The slap of hands on chests, thighs and upper arms. Singing and storytelling through the body.

I’ve greatly enjoyed hearing from many of you who have shared your thoughtful responses, either written or in conversation, to my column last week on the portraits of former President and First Lady Obama that were recently unveiled in Washington, D.C.

A small part of that collection makes up a popular ongoing exhibit at the gallery called “America’s Presidents.”

Dallas musician Jeff Grossman and his band Saints Eleven make their Waco debut Saturday night as the second band of the annual Zack and Jim Anniversary Blowout, but he’s no stranger to the territory.

While the romance and messages on racism in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “South Pacific” still hold up almost 70 years after its Broadway debut, theaters usually depend on the available talent for their timing.

One of my favorite TV shows growing up was “WKRP in Cincinnati,” which ran for four seasons in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. You may remember it: the show followed the misadventures of a quirky bunch running an album-rock AM radio station in Cincinnati. A couple of episodes were among the funniest things I’ve ever seen on television.

Miami University musicologist Tammy Kernodle will highlight the women who used songs and music to advance freedom and civil rights in her musical program “She Sang Freedom,” presented Thursday night at Baylor University’s Bennett Auditorium.

I’ve occasionally written in this column about the years I played music in Austin and my fondness for the people with whom I played. At our peak we were playing probably three or four nights a week and loving it. And why not? We were working in the city that was even then known everywhere as “the live music capital of the world.” We made enough to pay the bills (or most of them at least) and were, snide remarks aside, professionals.

With its title tongue-in-cheekily evoking “I, Claudius,” another epic tale of madness and debauchery, the dramatic comedy “I, Tonya” revisits — with verve, intelligence, scathing humor and more than a touch of sadness — the bizarre 1994 attack on figure skater Nancy Kerrigan, by goons associated with the camp of Kerrigan’s athletic rival, Tonya Harding.

The following movies are showing at first-run theaters Regal Jewel 16 (RJ16), AMC Classic Galaxy 16 (CG16) and the Waco Hippodrome (WH). Letter grades for movies are from advance reviews; an NR means a movie was not reviewed.

“Something’s comin’ / I don’t know what it is / But it is gonna be great.” So sings Tony when he’s overcome by the premonition that something big is about to happen to him. And of course that something big is meeting Maria, a name that instantly becomes the most beautiful sound he ever heard.
