"Laugh with a Legend," Larry Hagman

Besides appearing in a series of episodes in the upcoming season of f/X's "Nip/Tuck" series, Larry Hagman, the unstoppable J.R. Ewing of "Dallas," is keeping up personal appearances.

On Saturday, August 26, he'll be at the Casa Mañana Theatre in Fort Worth, Texas, for "Laugh With a Texas Legend: An Evening With Larry Hagman." He will narrate a multimedia presentation of slides, film clips and outtakes from his career, heavy on the "Dallas," of course. Tickets go on sale August 4 at $100 each, which includes the 8:30 p.m. show and the post-show party. If you want to start early with cocktails and a Texas-themed dinner (beginning at 6:30 p.m.), tickets are $350 per person, or tables are $3,000-$25,000. (Wowzers -- they do things big in Texas, ya know.) Call (817) 332-2272 or visit All proceeds benefit Casa Mañana's arts education and outreach programs.

A few days later, on Tuesday, August 29, he's off to Little Rock, Ark., to speak at the Amazing Spirit Awards Luncheon. Thank goodness, no slowin' down for that legend ...
