Willamson County News update

Mark Norwood’s defense attorneys William Browning and Bradley Urrutia field questions from the media Thursday while private investigator Mark Gillespie and Mr. Norwood's sister Connie Hoff look on, right. On Friday, a jury found Mr. Norwood guilty of the 1988 killing of Austin resident Debra Baker. He had previously been convicted of killing Christine Morton, the wife of Michael Morton, who was wrongfully sentenced by a Williamson County jury of killing her and spent more than two decades behind bars before his 2011 exoneration.

42nd Street Based on the novel by Bradford Ropes, 42nd Street tells the story of a young actress, Peggy Sawyer, who has come from Allentown, PA to audition for a Broadway musical. Peggy catches the eye of the famous director, Julian Marsh, who gives her a part in the chorus. On opening night, the star of the show falls and breaks her ankle. Can Peggy take the role and learn twenty-five pages, six songs and ten dance numbers to become a star? Don't miss this dance spectacular that was a 1980 Tony Award-winner for Best Musical and based on the 1933 Academy Award-winning musical film. Georgetown Palace Theatre, Weekends through September 25. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2 pm.

 

It's Only A Play Set on the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her lavish Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews. The group includes the excitable playwright; the possibly unstable wunderkind director; the pill-popping leading lady, treading the boards after becoming infamous in Hollywood; and the playwright's best friend, for whom the play was written but who passed up this production for a television series. Add to this a drama critic who panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre—and for comedy. September 16—October 9 at Sam Bass Theatre, 600 Lee St., Round Rock.
