Places! Sept. 1-7, 2016

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



published Wednesday, August 31, 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: The third annual Dallas DanceFest has two nights of great local and regional dancers/companies and a range of styles; Theatre Three does Down Under; a Steven Spielberg classic gets the live orchestra treatment; and there's a TON of rockin' comedy this week. Because it is Labor Day weekend, it's a little light on openings, but beginning next week, look for the dance, music and theater seasons to really begin. Also, look for a fall preview coming on TheaterJones.

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!

 1  Dallas DanceFest

Dance Council of North Texas | Dallas City Performance Hall

The Dance Council of North Texas presents the third annual Dallas DanceFest, which features a number of local ballet, contemporary, modern and other styles of dance companies, over two nights—plus a few returning favorites from Austin and Houston. Kleber Rebello and Jeanette Delgado of the Miami City Ballet perform in tribute to Edward Villella, who's receiving the Mary Bywaters Award for Lifetime Achievement in Dance. What's different about this year's event is that the five honorees for the Dance Council Honors will be given the awards on both nights, rather than on a Sunday; and there will be performances from DCNT scholarship recipients each night. This schedule of performances is listed below: | 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 2-3

The Taming at Circle Theatre

 

 

The Taming

Lauren Gunderson's political comedy was written about four years ago, but boyohboy is it timely for the current presidential political cycle. There are very loose connections to The Taming of the Shrew—Gunderson likes to springboard from Shakespeare's playsbut the cast of three is all women. And they are funn-EE. Robin Armstrong directs. | Through Sept. 17
