  • About six months ago, Joanie Schultz became the  new artistic director at WaterTower Theatre. The first decision she made was changing  the company’s season opener from “Sunday in the Park with George,” a mainstream Sondheim musical, to “Hit The Wall,” a raucous off-Broadway show about the origins of the gay rights movement. As part of  Art&Seek’s weekly look at the State of the Arts in North Texas, Anne Bothwell talked to Schultz about stirring things up in Addison.

  • One of the highest-grossing films of the summer — “Wonder Woman” — was made by a woman, Patty Jenkins. And this month, an entire festival of movies made by women is coming to Dallas. This week “The Big Screen” team previews the Women Texas Film Festival with artistic director Justina Walford.
