Places! June 16-22, 2016

It's our weekly list of performing arts events opening on local stages. Plus, the rundown of last-chance shows. (Also a catch-up from last week's missing Places!)



published Friday, June 17, 2016

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: Times have changed, and we've often rewound the clock...heaven knows, Anything Goes. Those lyrics from Cole Porter's 1934 musical are fitting for this week's Places! because not only are the top two choices filled with Porter—Lyric Stage's reconstructed revival of the musical opens, and Bruce Wood Dance Project has a revival of the late Wood's Anything Goes, which uses the musical's songs—but we're also rewinding the clock a bit. You may have noticed that there was not a Places! on TheaterJones last week, so we're trying to make it up with mentions of some of last week's big openings that are still going on (apologies to those that came and went, such as the Lev Aronson Cello Festival and Turtle Creek Chorale's Heartstrings). Also this week: Dallas Theater Center has Dreamgirls, the area's two major Shakespeare Festivals are on, the Cliburn amateur competition kicks up and there are rabid squirrels, jokers and actors. Oh, and check out this week's ROAD TRIP section. Two interesting offerings in states just to the north and northeast of us. 

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!

Bruce Wood Dance Project performs Anything Goes

 

 1  Anything Goes

Lyric Stage | Irving Arts Center, Carpenter Performance Hall

Lyric Stage closes the season with a revival of Cole Porter's classic Anything Goes, but it's not just any ol' revival. Lyric Music Director Jay Dias spent a lot of time researching and reconstructing the original orchestrations, and this production features songs that were dropped in the Boston tryout before the show opened on Broadway in 1934. And don't worry, all those classic songs you know, including "I Get a Kick Out of You" and "You're the Top," are still in there. It's performed with a 34-piece orchestra. | June 17-26

One Man, Two Guvnors screens as an encore in the NT Live series at Angelika Film Centers and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth

 

One Man, Two Guvnors

The National Theatre of London does an encore broadcast of this 2011 production of Richard Bean's adaptation of Carlo Goldini's commedia classic The Servant of Two Masters. This production starred James Corden, who would later win a Tony when this show transferred to Broadway in 2012. Corden is famous now as host of The Late, Late Show, so maybe y'all will go see it with a name you recognize. Fun fact: WaterTower Theatre in Addison will produce this play in August, starring former Dallasite Brian Gonzales, who was Corden's understudy on Broadway (and got to go on a few times). This screening is at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano. | 7pm Tuesday, June 21, and 2pm Wednesday, June 22

 ROAD TRIP!
