Places! Oct. 1-7, 2015

It's our weekly list of performing arts events opening on local stages. Plus, the rundown of last-chance shows.



published Friday, October 2, 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 and/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: WaterTower Theatre creeps, Cara Mía hip hops, and Stage West has some bad Jews. Also, a ton of the area's classical, choral and chamber music groups begin their seasons, and Dallas Black Dance Theatre opens its year with its annual celebration of African dance. Another big show is Denise Lee in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill at Jubilee Theatre, but because it's in previews and opens next week, look for more on it in next week's Places!

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.

NEW: Our listings have been seriously beefed up. There are currently about 800 items listed for every theater, dance, classical music and opera organization and event we know about in the coming season and through the end of 2016; plus comedy, poetry/spoken word, cabaret/variety/burlesque/circus and performing arts on film, with more events being added. Check our calendar section out, it's a great resource to find something you want to see, or didn't know you wanted to see. If your group/event is not listed, let us know at listings@theaterjones.com. Send all the info (address, website, phone, ticket range, description, names of creators, dates, times and a photo, poster art or logo). We list professional, semi-pro, community and university groups (sorry, not high school—there's simply too many).

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!
