On Friday night I was at Klyde Warren Park to watch the simulcast of the Dallas Opera's production of "Moby Dick."
(Capsule review: Resolutely forgettable score, bombastic and sometimes obscure libretto, but a very evocative symphonic orchestration during the non-vocal passages, and great musical and dramatic performances with some charismatic actors (Jay Hunter Morris (Ahab) is from Paris, Texas), and gorgeous and astounding stagecraft that made an impact even half a football field away on screen, worth sitting through the about-45-minutes-too-long opera.)
Jody Dean was serving as a kind of Klyde Warren Park emcee. During the intermission, he and another person whose name I didn't catch were asking what they called "trivia questions" about the first act to (mostly) little kids and a few adults.
One of the adults was a guy named Philip.
He was wearing an old-style Ticket t-shirt.
Jody took note. I don't recall his exact words but they were to the effect that "couldn't you have found a KLUV t-shirt?" OWTTE. I don't recall Philip's response, but he did answer the opera question correctly.
Anyone else see this?
