Places! April 23-29, 2015

It's our weekly list of performing arts events opening on local stages. This week has new and old opera, a major musical revival and a newsworthy national tour, to name a few. Plus, the rundown of last-chance shows.



published Thursday, April 23, 2015

Welcome to our weekly mega-list of performing arts happenings on TheaterJones! It covers a Thursday-to-Wednesday cycle and rounds up our picks for the best theater, classical music, opera, dance, comedy, spoken word/poetry and performing arts on film that are opening on North Texas stages and in movie theaters. Of all the local print or digital publications out there, it's the only weekly list of best bets that covers the range of performing arts—and only performing arts.

This week is huge—just take a look at the top five events, which includes the opening of the Fort Worth Opera Festival, a major musical revival of Kurt Weill, a major musical tour, a major contemporary dance name and a very cool music/film event. And it doesn't stop there. Read on.

This list doesn't have everything happening in this week's cycle, but we've hit the highlights. For more listings, click the red calendar button at the top right of the page, and then you'll see a search function where you can search for events by presenting company, venue, title, description, date range and more options.

Note: Theater productions that have opened in a previous cycle and are in the middle of the run are not in the list below, but you can find them in the listings (see paragraph above). When a show is in its final weekend, we'll mention it in the "Last Chance" section of Places!

Get out and support the arts!

1. Fort Worth Opera Festival: Dog Days and La traviata

Fort Worth Opera | Bass Performance Hall and Fort Worth Community Arts Center's Scott Theatre

Although this year's Fort Worth Opera Festival has one fewer opera than in recent years, because of budget cut-backs (sadly, the planned world premiere of an opera of A Wrinkle in Time was dropped), there are still plenty of reasons to be excited about the 2015 line-up. For Shakespeare fans this includes a rare revival of Ambroise Thomas' 1868 version of Hamlet, which has its first performance here on May 2. The festival opens this weekend with David T. Little and Royce Vavrek's apocalyptic Dog Days, which premiered in 2012 and is based on a 2001 short film; and Little and Vavrek's JFK will have its world premiere by Fort Worth Opera in 2016. Dog Days has its first performance Friday at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center's Scott Theatre. Then on Saturday, this year's warhorse, Verdi's La traviata, has its first of three performances at Bass Performance Hall. | April 24-May 10

Janelle Lutz stars in Lady in the Dark at Lyric Stage

 

2. Lady in the Dark

Lyric Stage | Irving Arts Center, Carpenter Hall

Lyric Stage has been second to none in these parts for its revivals of fully staged classic musicals with full orchestras on a professional level (seriously, is anyone else in the country even doing that?). But it hasn't always been about the warhorses, as proven in the current season, which last year had a revival of The Golden Apple and now takes on its first Kurt Weill work with this 1941 work, which features lyrics by Ira Gershwin and a book by Moss Hart. Here, Janelle Lutz stars as the title character, a fashion magazine editor (based on Vogue's Diana Vreeland), undergoing psychoanalysis. Ann Nieman directs and choreographs; music director Jay Dias conducts. | April 24-May 3

3. Newsies

AT&T Performing Arts Center Broadway Series | Winspear Opera House

Christian Bale starred in the 1992 musical film Newsies, about a late 19th century newspaper strike. It was a flop, but became a cult hit. It became even more popular with the stage musical version, which has reworked music and lyrics by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman (who both did those duties for the movie), and a new book by Harvey Fierstein. It lost the 2012 Best Musical Tony to the more innovative Once, but Newsies will likely make gobs more money because professional, amateur and high school theaters will keep the royalties coming to its creators for decades to come. The national tour, directed by Jeff Calhoun, is presented in the AT&T Performing Arts Center's Broadway Series at the Winspear Opera House. | April 29-May 10

5. Sight of Sound International Film Competition

Dallas Chamber Symphony | Dallas City Performance Hall

The Dallas Chamber Symphony is one of the more interesting music organizations in North Texas, a reputation it has built in just three seasons. In addition to the organization's commissions for silent film scores, there's this brilliant idea: Sight of Sound International Film Festival gives filmmakers a short piece of established music by composers such as Elgar, Grieg and Glass, and asks the filmmakers to make a short film inspired by the music, and using the score. On Tuesday, the DCS, conducted by Richard McKay, will screen the films and play the music live. Local filmmakers include Courtney Ware and Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts' Montana Brock; and there's also a piece of music from local composer Margaret Barrett, the Executive Director of terrific new music ensemble Voices of Change. | 8 p.m. April 28
