late California billionaire has left all of his assets to his daughter Connie — except for the $22 million yacht he left to his British squeeze Jo, the $25 million art collection he left to his bodacious French flower Renee, and the priceless antique cars he left to his limber lover Marjorie. When Connie and her greedy lawyer Vance show up at the mansion to see if they can buy out the girlfriends, the man with all the answers is the butler, Clifton. Denton resident Johnny Williams returns to the Denton Community Theatre director’s chair after a hiatus of “years and years” to lead Who’s in Bed With the Butler?, a farce by playwright Michael E. Parker, an Englishman. Williams said he was happy to serve when the company needed a trained hand to helm the confection. Who’s in Bed hasn’t gotten the Broadway treatment, but it has been produced across the country by community theaters. And it makes sense for community theaters to gravitate to the farce. “It’s a play for six women and three men,” Williams said. “That’s great for us. We have so many talented women who show up for auditions in Denton. And we usually have a lot more women at auditions than men.” As for his long years away from the director’s post, Williams chalked it up to his own limitations. “I didn’t have the energy,” said Williams, who is a former managing director of Denton Community Theatre — before he went to work at Acme Brick. “Now that I’m retired, I do.” Williams said he took some liberties with casting. Instead of having three actresses play two

roles each, he matched an actress to each role. Betty Kay Seibt plays maid Agnes, who is deaf and stubborn in equal measure. Sherri Small makes her Denton debut in the role of Susie, an actress hired by the butler himself. Colleen Reed plays the whip-smart Jo, one of the women in bed with the butler. “I wanted to cast some mature women in these roles, because we have mature women who can play these parts,” Williams said. Small and Reed are, as it turns out, a match for actress Vanessa Welch, who is all long red hair and curves as Renee. Playwright Parker suggested the butler be played by an actor between age 40 and 60, but the director cast Tom Kelly, an actor


Marjorie (Arielle Engle) danced her way into Clifton’s life in Denton Community Theatre’s “Who’s in Bed With the Butler?” “closer to my age,” Williams said. “I wanted him to be real,” he added. The play is meant as fun, light fare, and Parker makes sure most of the characters make out all right. “The three women are called

bimbos, but in a different time, maybe a different place, they’d be considered entrepreneurs — which is what they are,” Williams said. LUCINDA BREEDING can be reached at 940-566-6877.

Play it Lao

Dallas MC set to bust beats at Thin Line

am Lao stirred up the Dallas music press in 2013 for good reason. The young and rising Dallas MC is far more literary than Nicki Minaj and every bit as feral as Dominique Young Unique.


Sam Lao 7 p.m. Feb. 13 at the Thin Line Tent

When she takes the stage next month during Denton’s Thin Line, a five-day documentary film and music festival, she’ll break off a big piece of her heady flow and grownup poetry for Denton audiences. Lao, whose visual arts chops preceded her preternatural spitting skills, dusted up attention for her six-track 2013 EP, West Pantego. And rightly so. Smart musical osmosis may have come from Lao’s association with the artists and electronic savants of Dallas crew Brain Gang (who rocked Andy’s Bar late last year during a hip-hop set), but at any rate, the EP sets the bar high for any follow-up. Pantego is a solid record from start to finish, but “Run!” is an example of Lao’s command of verse, and “Paradise,” which makes excellent use of Coldplay’s trial run with pop, is a docket of Lao’s intuition for music. With a find such as Lao on the Thin Line music roster, festival organizers have signaled their seriousness in broadening what had been a 10-day blast just for documentary films. Lao represents the cream of Dallas’ hip-hop scene. Brave Combo stands in for tradition in Denton, and as of Wednesday night, the top lab jazz band at Denton High School had also earned a slot. — Lucinda Breeding

sunset Recording ‘Outrun’ tested musician Sam Riggs’ mettle Sam Riggs and the Night People pull into Rockin’ Rodeo tonight to play tracks from the band’s debut album.

By Lucinda Breeding Staff Writer

Sam Riggs wanted his debut album to be different. “I wanted to make an album that was different in a way that touches people and reaches people on a different level,” Riggs said. “I didn’t want to make an album that was about blue jeans and beer.” Not that there isn’t a place in country music for blue jeans and cold beer. It’s just that the Austin musician didn’t see the sense in plowing over spent ground. When Outrun the Sun dropped late last year, Riggs said he felt like the album lived up to the money and time that Nashvillebased Vision Entertainment put into it. Riggs didn’t shy away from calling out Denton producer Erik Herbst (who’s worked with the likes of the Eli Young Band and Bowling for Soup) as a taskmaster. “I feel lucky to have spent the time with Erik,” Riggs said. “Erik knew how to push me. It might have made me mad at the time, but in hindsight, he was right to push me the way he did.” Sam Riggs and the Night People cruise into Denton tonight for a date at Rockin’ Rodeo. He and his band will roll into the lot off Avenue C with the

fire in their bellies still stoked. Outrun the Sun earned raves from Country Weekly and Texas Music magazines as well as getting love from the indie-loving set, including Daytrotter and The 615, a Billboard blog. “It’s a collection of stories, and all these stories are part of the same book,” Riggs said. “Erik and I sat down and talked about how country music is about telling a story.” Outrun the Sun tries to be a

little bit of everything, and from the pop-friendly, bass drumheavy rock anthem “Change” that fades to black at the end of the album, to the country-rock, chart-ready “The Chase,” Riggs presents a polished product. One track, “Angola’s Lament,” makes you yearn for more of his banjo picking and honest voice. It’s the track that goes down the dirtiest and the best, and betrays the Texas blues soulfulness that mentor Ray Wylie Hubbard taught Riggs to plumb for. (It’s one of those Texas blues-rock numbers that makes you imagine the warping heat hovering on a dirt road and smell the organic musk tapped in the oilfield.) “We’ve been playing quite a few of these songs on stage for quite a while,” Riggs said. “I felt like they were ready to go, but Erik had other ideas. In the pro-

ducer-musician relationship, he was ready to grow the songs in a way I wasn’t ready for. But all the changes he made to my songs ended up being right.” “Collide” took the producer and Riggs down the rabbit hole for a while. “Collide” was probably the most personal for the songwriter, but Riggs said he sat down on the floor of the studio and hammered out the bridge for the tune in about an hour. “I have a rule of thumb,” Riggs said. “I don’t like to record anything we can’t replicate on stage. At the time, we wanted to be a better band, and I think we rose to the occasion. I mean, we did some overtracking, and vocals were [done] at the end.” Riggs said he and Herbst “sat there for days” in the studio. Herbst kept demanding more precision from from Riggs. “Erik doesn’t tune anything,”

Riggs said. “Erik is a nazi when it comes to vocals. We worked and worked on it. He’d go over to the piano and bang on it, like, ‘This is the note. This is it. Right here.’ He’d be hitting that note. “I think he knew what he could pull out of me. I feel like he made me better. I definitely feel like I’ve grown as a singer, as a songwriter.” Riggs and his band will spend some time on the road wringing as much raw energy and emotion out of Outrun the Sun as they can. “When you write songs, writing gets you to write more. I’ve got more songs now, and I’m working on more,” he said. “When it comes to making records, I’m of the mind that, you know, we’ll make a record when there’s a record to be made.” LUCINDA BREEDING can be reached at 940-566-6877.

Vanessa Hudgens stars as Apple, a pregnant, homeless teen, in “Gimme Shelter.”

Wayward story

Troubled teen’s tale feels manipulative

To emphasize the gravity of Gimme Shelter, the opening credits state that it is “based on a true story.” Then, the words “a true story” linger on the screen. So, no need to worry — you won’t forget for a second how serious this grossly manipulative new movie is. Gimme Shelter is an awkward mix of cautionary tale and after-school TV special, combining elements of each for a lumpy experience. Writer-director Ron Krauss ends up delivering several — at times contradictory — messages in telling the story of Apple (Vanessa Hudgens), nee Agnes, a 16-year-

old runaway who is also unknowingly pregnant. When Krauss introduces Apple, she seems to be surviving somehow in awful places. Krauss provides a series of scenes and images of Apple as she flees several of these abusive and even dangerous situations. She reveals only enough of herself for us to see she is stubborn, surly, and not prone to take orders from anyone. After escaping several of these clumsily orchestrated crises, she ends up at the plush New Jersey home of her longabsent father, Tom (Brendan Fraser), a Wall Street executive. Remarried with two young children of his own, he unsuccessfully tries to bring Apple into his

household. She subsequently survives a car crash, learns of her pregnancy, and then, through the assistance of a stereotypically kind priest (James Earl Jones), lands in a home for teen mothers. In the interim, her own drug-addled mother, June (Rosario Dawson), screams histrionically about taking Apple back home. Until late in the narrative, Apple remains mostly a onenote character. Even after she

love with his operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Jonze probes higher questions of what actually makes a human. Thoughtful, if at times leisurely paced. With Chris

Pratt, Amy Adams and Rooney Mara. Rated R, 126 minutes. — B.A. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (★★★1⁄2) The Desolation of Smaug is not much shorter than the

first film of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, but it feels brisker, lighter, funnier. Instead of a drawn-out intro, we get right to the action — the quest of Bilbo (Martin Freeman,

enters the home and intermingles with girls her own age, she stays cantankerous. But the presence of seemingly caring strangers obviously works its magic because, eventually, Apple faces up to her situation and handles it somewhat admirably. Despite its “true story” status, Gimme Shelter continuously traffics in overly melodramatic elements. Finally, the resolution comes as easily, as does the all-around forgiveness. The films ends predictably as the manipulative, sappy morality play it is, with maudlin ending credits of photos of the real Apple, her child and the friends she made at the mothers’ home.

Ale, yeah

Sidle up for local craft brews when Indy Ales christens taproom

By Lucinda Breeding Features Editor

Independent Ale Works has something to celebrate. The local craft brewery launches its taproom during a party on Saturday. What’s a taproom? Simple: a bar with beers on tap to serve cool, locally made beer. The company, known locally simply as Indy Ales, was one of a couple of local craft brewers to start in 2010. Armadillo Ale Works traces its beginnings to the same year. Independent Ale Works paved the way for fledgling breweries like Ugly Rugger and Zero96. Indy Ales founders Stefen Windham and Dave Miller nursed the brewery from a weekend passion to a business. The pair opened a nanobrewery in Krum to make the company’s simple menu of ales. Their aim? To make tasty ales that aren’t fussy or the sop-catch for snooty foodies. If you tip back Indy’s amber or blond ale with a burger and fries and count yourself happy, Windham and Miller will have met their goals. The local brewery will serve beers that patrons can sample with fare from Waffle Wagon (you can start with the food truck’s savory waffles and finish off with a sweet one). If you want a more typically Texas beer experience, another food truck, Flatlanders Taco Co., will sling Tex-Mex staples. Indy Ales hasn’t announced what will be in the kegs, but the brewery has mastered its Amber 3.0, and also serves a blond. There’s no word on whether the anticipated dark ale (made with a splash of Irish cream) will make an appearance at the taproom launch. (With the forecast predicting a high of 62 degrees on Saturday and a low of 34, it’d be providential to toast with the amber in the afternoon and a darker, heavier brew in the evening.) No Denton beer party would be complete without music, and Indy Ales doesn’t disappoint. Dallas rock quartet Prostinaut will kick out some sounds, and Lone Star duo Sand Dollar Rodeo will strike up some alt-country. (Note: Sand Dollar Rodeo lists beer and okra among its band interests.) LUCINDA BREEDING can be reached at 940-566-6877.

Founders David Miller and Stefen Windham, shown in 2012, launched Independent Ale Works, a startup nanobrewery in Krum. Now Indy Ales is opening its taproom to the public. David Minton/DRC file photo

A squirrel named Surly (voiced by Will Arnett) hopes to secure a tasty stash in “The Nut Job.”

MOVIES Continued from Page 8 reclaim the kingdom of Erebor from the frightening dragon Smaug. With Ian McKellen, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly. Rated PG-13, 161 minutes. — The Associated Press Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (★★1⁄2) In this Jack Ryan reboot, Chris Pine takes over as Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst. Shadow Recruit, which was scripted without a Clancy book, tells a new backstory for Ryan. Inspired by Sept. 11, he joins the Marines and is heroically injured in Afghanistan. During his recovery, he meets his eventual fiancee (Keira Knightley) and is lured to the CIA by a mysterious recruiter (Kevin Costner). He’s covertly embedded at a Wall Street bank where he uncovers a Russian plot to buy up U.S. Treasury bonds. Director-actor Kenneth Branagh endows his film with (mostly) oldfashioned competency but little to distinguish it from superior thrillers that have come before. Rated PG-13, 105 minutes. — AP The Legend of Hercules Betrayed by his stepfather, the mythical Greek hero Hercules (Kellan Lutz) is sold into slavery because of a forbidden love and must fight for his life and his kingdom. With Scott Adkins and Liam McIntyre. Directed by Renny Harlin. Rated PG-13, 87 minutes. — LAT Lone Survivor (★★1⁄2) Mark Wahlberg stars in this true story of four Navy SEALS in Afghanistan in 2005 on a mission to find and eliminate a Taliban leader. When the squad is reduced to one (hence the title), he finds refuge in an unlikely place. The standard action flick accentuates the bravery of the squad, but co-writer and director Peter Berg never raises his film beyond routine adventure material. With Eric Bana, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster and Taylor Kitsch. Rated R, 121 minutes. — B.A. The Nut Job (★★1⁄2) In Peter Lepeniotis’ animated film, the animals in Liberty Park, ruled by a gruff raccoon (voiced by Liam Neeson) are facing a

severe nut shortage, and Surly the squirrel (Will Arnett), who thinks only of himself, has somehow set fire to the winter stockpile. Banished from the park, Surly discovers a nut shop — cashews, peanuts, hazelnuts, you name it. If he can snag that booty, he’ll be golden for the winter — but a group of humans plotting a bank heist have their own connections to the nut stash. Decent but frankly forgettable entry to the animal-centered animated film oeuvre. With Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser and Maya Rudolph. Rated PG, 86 minutes. — AP Ride Along (★★) A little Kevin Hart goes a long way in Ride Along, a dull buddy picture engineered as a vehicle for the mini-motor mouth Hart and the perma-sneering Ice Cube. Cube is cranky cop James, whose pursuit of a mysterious villain named Omar is interrupted by his sister’s fiance. That would be Ben (Hart), a video gameaddicted school security guard who longs to bring his wise-cracking, voice-cracking banter to the Atlanta P.D. James drags Ben on a ride-along just to convince the dude he isn’t cut out for police work and that he isn’t good enough for James’ supermodel sister Angela (Tika Sumpter). Rated PG-13, 100 minutes. — McClatchyTribune News Service Saving Mr. Banks (★★★) Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson turns in a spirited performance as P.L. Travers, the author of Mary Poppins. He brings her to Hollywood from England in hopes of landing the movie rights to her book. But he finds her cantankerous and obstructionist at every turn. Amusingly entertaining with two fine lead performances. Rated PG-13, 125 minutes. — B.A. The Wolf of Wall Street (★★1⁄2) Leonardo DiCaprio stars in this inconsistently high-energy film from Martin Scorsese that skewers Wall Street and those who bend the rules to work there.
