This weekend: ‘Biggest Loser’ webinar, ‘One in 3’ and Amalia

Wake up this Saturday morning with Bill Germanakos, the fourth-season winner in the reality series "The Biggest Loser". He’ll be at Methodist Hospital from 9-11 a.m. telling those present all about the dramatic turning point that prompted him to enter the show and the behind-the-scenes stories of the reality show. Methodist Health System is offering weight-loss workshops on Feb. 7 and 18 as well; all of these events are free but space is limited. Call 214.947.0000 or register online.

Oak Cliff playwright Gretchen Dyer collaborated with two other female playwrights to create "One in 3", which is showing now through Jan. 31, and Feb. 6-7 at Project X Studio. The title of the play refers to the number of women in American who have had an abortion, and the playwrights assert that many women remain silent about this reality. This play, they say, is an attempt to break the silence. Lest anyone worry, the website states that this "is a play about the reality, not the politics." Tickets are $20, except for pay-what-you-can Wednesdays, and after the Jan. 24, 28 and 31 performances, the audience is invited to stick around for "talk backs" with the writers, directors and actors.

Haley-Henman Gallery‘s latest exhibit from artist Amalia Zelaya El-Masri opens this weekend, with an opening reception Saturday from 7-11 p.m. The exhibit is titled "Stepping Into New Shoes", with the artist celebrating new political changes both in the United States and in Paraguay.
