Weekend Places! May 18-21, 2017

Places! is coming back to TheaterJones after a two-month hiatus. To prepare ourselves for the return, here's a shorter weekend edition of our picks for performing arts events around DFW.



published Thursday, May 18, 2017

We've heard you. You miss our weekly Places! column, which 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. It has been MIA for about two months on the site, but it's surging back. The Places! with the Monday-to-Sunday cycle returns next week (yes we know we've said that before, but trust), and to get ready for it, here's one covering the weekend of Thursday, May 18 through Sunday, May 21.

Remember, 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.

Also, look for an announcement about TheaterJones coming in the next few weeks. 

 

Reminder: 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. Keep looking at the calendar over the next few weeks as we'll be entering all the new seasons for the arts organizations, so it will grow again!

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!

Electra at Dallas Theater Center

 

Electra

The under-construction parking garage directly to the west of Strauss Square makes for an eerie backdrop for the second and longest section of Dallas Theater Center's promenade-style production of Sophocles' Electra. With that and other construction in the vicinity, it's like ancient Greek ruins. Appropriate for this searing (literally when it comes to several unfortunate carcasses on the set) tell of revenge, in which the audience travels from the Strauss stage to the park to an underground structure, to the reflecting pool in front of the Winspear Opera House. It's amazing that you give Kevin Moriarty wonderful spaces to play in at the Kalita Humphreys Theater and in the very adaptable Wyly Theatre, and he still wants more options. That's one of the reasons his ideas and leadership helped the Dallas Theater Center win this year's Regional Theater Tony Award. | Thru May 27
