<em>Don Quixote</em>&nbsp;at Hip Pocket Theatre

Places! Aug. 11-17, 2016

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



published Thursday, August 11, 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: A Tony-winning guide to love and murder comes to the Winspear, Stage West introduces us to Robert O'Hara and his Bootycandy, Hip Pocket Theatre chases windmills, the Kitchen Dogs debut 60 new plays from local writers, and Pegasus Theatre gets a rise from the coarse actor. Also: raindrops on roses, umbrellas, roller skates and choo-choo trains are a few of our favorite things.

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!

A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder comes to AT&T Performing Arts Center

 

 

 1  A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder

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

The 2016-17 Broadway Series for AT&T Performing Arts Center looks like it's going to be one of the best since the Winspear Opera House opened, with a lot of First National Tours. It begins with Gentleman's Guide, which won the Best Musical Tony Award in 2014 (beating After MidnightAladdin and Beautiful). Gentleman's Guide is a throwback to Gilbert & Sullivan, with the plot of a man who has to kill off eight family members to receive an inheritance. The twist: the eight family members are played by one actor. It begins a two-week run at the Winspear Aug. 16, and don't forget that on the second Tuesday, Aug. 23, TheaterJones is co-hosting an Industry Night, which has discounted tickets! If you purchase these tickets, you'll get a VIP lanyard for admittance into the intermission party and after-party, which will have members of the cast on hand. You'll also get first dibs on Industry Night tickets for the upcoming tours of Rent and The Book of Mormon. Also of note: Beginning this season, the touring shows at ATTPAC will have start times of 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and certain Sundays. (The Friday and Saturday evening start times are still 8 p.m.) | Aug. 16-28

Bootycandy at Stage West

 

 2  Bootycandy

Stage West, Fort Worth

North Texas is about to get a buttload of New York-based playwright and director Robert O'Hara. It begins with Stage West doing the area premiere of his 2011 play Bootycandy, a collection of 11 funny and satirical interconnected vignettes about growing up black and gay. The play's title is a euphemism, but we'll wait for you to see it before revealing what it is. The production is directed by Akín Babatundé and features a cast of Natalie Wilson King, Liz Mikel, Justin Duncan, Aaron Green and Djoré Nance. At some point in the run, O'Hara himself will see the show because he'll be in town to direct the world premiere of Kirsten Childs' Bella at Dallas Theater Center, which also stars Liz Mikel. | Bootycandy previews Aug. 11-12, opens Aug. 13 and runs through Sept. 11

 3  Don Quixote

Hip Pocket Theatre | Silver Creek Amphitheatre, Fort Worth

We probably look forward to the annual production by Lake Simons and John Dyer at Hip Pocket Theatre more than any other, but this year Lake Simons' wordless, visual theater adaptation of Cervantes' Don Quixote has us extra-excited. This is the 400th anniversary of Miguel de Cervates' death, you know (also of another literary giant you may have heard about). It's the first of what will be a tremendous rest of the season for the Hipsters, as the next production is a long-awaited revival of Johnny Simons' early and autobiographical The Lake Worth Monster, which will feature the titular puppet designed and built by famed New York puppeteer Basil Twist, who will be in Fort Worth for a week during the run of Don Quixote. You can read more about the Lake production in Shelby-Allison Hibbs' Work in Progress feature, in the link below. | Aug. 12-Sept. 4

 4  Third Dallas One-Minute Play Festival

One-Minute Play Festival and Kitchen Dog Theater | Trinity River Arts Center, Dallas

Kitchen Dog Theater presents the third Dallas One-Minute Play Festival, this time at the Trinity River Arts Center (also known as K.D. Studio Theatre), which will be the home for Kitchen Dog for the upcoming season. The festival features 60 plays, and yes, there are all less than 60 seconds long. Look for recurring themes in the works, which come from Vicki Caroline Cheatwood, Angela Wilson, Isabella Russell Ides, Jeff Swearingen, Jonathan Norton, Jason Johnson Spinos, Jared Strange, Cody Lucas, Matt Lyle, Nico Martini, Joshua Kumler, Robin Armstrong, Jim Kuenzer, John Michael, Janielle Kastner, Steven Young, Lauren Ferebee, Brigham Mosley, Iv Amenti, Ruth Cantrell, Renee Jones, Erin Burdette, Shelby-Allison Hibbs, Jeremy Wilson, Brian Kennedy, Paul Engle, Kyndal Robertson and Micheal Federico. The directors are Abigail Birkett, David Denson, David Meglino, Kelsey Head, Marianne Galloway, Ryan Lescalleet, Terry Martin and Conner Palmore. | 8 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday (Aug. 13-15)

 5  The Coarse Actor Rises

Pegasus Theatre | Bath House Cultural Center

Pegasus Theatre presents the premiere of Kurt Kleinmann's comedy, the latest in his "Coarse Actor" series, which is perhaps the second best-known product from this company (the first is the Living Black and White plays, of course). In The Coarse Actor Rises!, "a group of deadly serious actors with varying degrees of ineptitude throw in all sorts of mistakes, miscues, and mayhem, and you end up with a hilarious evening of goofs, gaffes, and guffaws!" | Aug. 11-27

Junior Players presents The Transformation Project: Evolution

 

 6  The Transformation Project: Evolution

Junior Players | Dallas City Performance Hall

For the second year, Junior Players presents a dance production. This year it's choreographed by Sara Romersberger and Taylor Lynn McKie, and is described as "an exploration of personal growth and change, whether it has to do with socio-economic challenges, ethnic barriers, or real and perceived trials." It features 11 teen dancers will come together to discuss some of the most challenging issues facing themselves, their peers, and their community, and how the arts have given them an outlet to deal with those challenges. | 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Friday and Saturday, Aug. 12-13

 7  Richard III

Almeida Live | Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano

We've seen two local productions of Shakespeare's second-longest play in Dallas over the past year, both with Brandon Potter in the title role: The first at Shakespeare in the Bar, the second at Shakespeare Dallas. Not to take anything away from those, but, guys, Ralph Fiennes plays Rick in the recent production at London's Almeida Theatre, directed by Rupert Goold and featuring Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Margaret. You can see the production screened on film at the Angelika Film Centers in Dallas and Plano. | 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 and 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17

 8  The Sound of Music

Performing Arts Fort Worth | Bass Performance Hall

This is the new national tour of one of the world's most popular musicals, the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic with fresh new direction by multiple Tony Award-winner Jack O'Brien. The tour was in Dallas late last year (on the heels of O'Brien directing the world premiere opera Great Scott at Dallas Opera), and now it comes to Bass Performance Hall. | Aug. 17-21

 9  Roman vs. Fousey

Mills Entertainment | Majestic Theatre, Dallas

Comedy duo Roman Atwood and Fousey (Yousef Erakat, the stage name is an anagram of his first name) have become popular for their comedy pranks. Now, in this touring show, they battle it out to see who will be the Ultimate Jokester. Featuring on-stage challenges, rap battles, impressions and dude-bro humor. Sold out, but return tickets might be available at the door. | 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11

» More info in our listing

 

 10  Starlight Express

Artisan Center Theater, Hurst

It might be one of Andrew Lloyd Webber's more maligned musicals, this show about choo-choo trains with the actors on roller skates. It wasn't a huge hit on Broadway, but it was one of the West End's longest running shows, and it's still a big hit in Germany. But so is The Hoff. The Richard Stilgoe lyrics come with revisions by Don Black, David Yazbek, Alistair Lloyd Webber and Nick Coler. We're interested to see Artisan pull this off in their small in-the-round space. Kneepads all around! Also, we admit a weakness for the love duet "Only You." | Aug. 12-Sept. 3

Singin' in the Rain at Stolen Shakespeare Guild

 

 

 11  Singin' in the Rain

Stolen Shakespeare Guild | Fort Worth Community Arts Center, Sanders Theatre

Stolen Shakespeare Guild closes its 2015-16 season, and its summer of musicals, with Singin' in the Rain, the stage version of which is an adaptation of the greatest Hollywood musical of all time. Yep, that's right. The book is by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, lyrics by Arthur Freed, and music by Nacio Herb Brown. The production is directed by Nathan Dibben with music direction by Lauren Morgan and choreography by Jessica Taylor. Will it rain onstage? Can't wait to see. | Aug. 12-28

 12  Mary Poppins

Rockwall Summer Musicals | Rockwall High School Performing Arts Center

Rockwall Summer Musicals presents the stage musical Mary Poppins, which uses music from the movie by Richard M. and Robert B. Sherman, with a new book by Jullian Fellowes (now of Downton Abbey fame). There are also new songs and additional music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. Lucy Shea plays the title role, and the flying effects are provided by Flying by Foy. | Aug. 12-21

Citizen Drumpf at Ohlook Performing Arts

 

Citizen Drumpf

Still has some nipping and tucking to do, but Matthew Lord and Kelley Poché Rodriguez's musical about the current presidential election cycle, with a focus on the life of the Republican nominee, is really funny. What makes that great is that the humor comes from what has actually come out of his mouth, embellished for satire's sake. (But not much.) Don't worry, GOPers. Hillary doesn't come out clean, either. Bernie narrates. It has two more performances this weekend, and then will come down for some tweaking, and then have another run closer to the election. By then, there'll surely be more material to consider adding. He gives us something new every day. Look for a review coming on TheaterJones. | 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 12-13
