Kathleen Mellen’s Best Bets
I love insider, behind-the-scenes stories about the movies. On Monday, “Casting By,” a documentary about Hollywood casting directors, produced by Belchertown native Kate Lacey, debuts on HBO. The focus is on industry trailblazer Marion Dougherty, with whom Lacey once interned. It features interviews with many actors who were cast, often in defining roles, thanks to Dougherty, including Jon Voight in “Midnight Cowboy” and Carroll O’Connor in “All in the Family.” At 9 p.m.
ANOTHER GOOD BET
“Generation IV Dance” brings Hollywood and stage stars of commercial, contemporary dance, including Southampton’s own Teddy Forance, to the Academy of Music stage in Northampton Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. www.academyofmusictheatre.com
