Stage West Theater Presents Church and State
Three days before his re-election bid — following another school shooting — a US senator has a life-altering crisis of faith, triggering an off-the-cuff comment that sends the entire campaign into a tailspin. His wife and campaign manager are trying to contain the damage, but in a country where religion influences politics and politics has become religion, how do you reach people and stay true to yourself? The production, which will make its regional premiere with Stage West Theatre, will run until February 20.

Magnolia at the Modern: Parallel mothers
In Parallel mothers, two women coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and got pregnant by accident. Janis (Penelope Cruz), in her fifties, does not regret it and she exults. The other, Ana (Milena Smit), a teenager, is scared, repentant and traumatized. The few words they exchange during these hours will create a very close bond between the two, which by chance develops and becomes more complicated, changing their lives in a decisive way. The film, which is in Spanish with English subtitles, will screen seven times through Sunday at the Museum of Modern Art in Fort Worth.

Fort Worth Opera Presents Zorro
Fort Worth Opera will premiere the opera The Masked Avenger by composer-librettist Héctor Armienta, Zorro.

The two remaining performances are on Friday and Sunday at the Rose Marine Theater. (Read an interview with one of the stars here.)
