Opens Thursday, Jan. 8
Tulsa-based Theatre Pops presents its vision of Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning drama August: Osage County, opening Thursday, Jan. 8, at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. Filled with dark humor, family secrets and a mountain of conflict, the play centers on matriarch Violet and her family living near Pawhuska. Written by Letts, an Oklahoma native, the play debuted on Broadway in 2007. In 2010, a national tour starring Academy Award-winning actress Estelle Parsons (Bonnie and Clyde) stopped in Tulsa. Theatre Pops’ telling will feature several well-known Tulsa actors. It opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and runs through Sunday, Jan. 11. The run resumes Jan. 15-18. The Tulsa PAC is located at 110 E. Second St. Tickets are $20-$25, available at www.myticketoffice.com. The play is for a mature audience only.
