Broadway diva and Fort Worth native Betty Buckley's signed on for a run of "Arsenic and Old Lace" at the Dallas Theater Center. Buckley is most famous for creating the role of Grizabella in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Cats." She stopped the show every night with her version of "Memory." She also played the loving stepmother, Abby, in the TV series, "Eight is Enough," from 1977-1981.


Joining Buckley is another Broadway legend, Tovah Feldshuh, who earned accolades for her portrayal as Golda Meir.

Here's what the DTC's website has to say about the 1941 play by Joseph Kesselring :

It’s murder most funny as the homicidal Brewster sisters of Brooklyn take to relieving the loneliness of old men by inviting them in for a nice glass of homemade elderberry wine. It just happens to be laced with a few additives: arsenic, strychnine, and “just a pinch” of cyanide. Award-winning Broadway legends Betty Buckley and Tovah Feldshuh join forces in this fresh, new take of this black comic farce, one of the most popular plays in the history of American theater.

Evening performances begin at 7:30. Matinee performances are at 2:30. The theater is dark on Monday. There are two performances (2:30 p.m. matinee and 7:30 p.m. evening performance) on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets range from $15 to $75. Go online at www.dallastheatercenter.org or call  214-880-0202 for single ticket sales. For group sale tickets please call 214-978-2879.
