Ashley Kelley starts in <em>Bella: An American Tall Tale</em>&nbsp;at Dallas Theater Center

Places! Sept. 29-Oct. 5, 2016

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



published Wednesday, September 28, 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 world premiere tall tale is at Dallas Theater Center, Jubilee Theatre's new artistic director gets Working, L.I.P. Service revisits a famous figure, Drag Strip Courage goes XX for Hamlet, soloists have roles at the Dallas and Richardson symphonies, and there are dance festivals in Plano and Waco. And in Oklahoma City, there's a new musical with gay subject matter.

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!

 3  Working: A Musical

Jubilee Theatre, Fort Worth

Normally, Places! uses opening day, not the previews, as the cycle for which to tout a show. But because next weekend is going to be very busy, and this weekend not so much, here's a plug for the opening production of Jubilee Theatre's 36th season. It's big because it's the first season selected by new Artistic Director William (Bill) Earl Ray, who becomes the fourth A.D. in North Texas' longest-running black theater's history—and the third since the death of co-founder Rudy Eastman in 2005. Working is the 1977 musical adapted by Stephen Schwartz and Nina Faso from the Studs Terkel collection of stories about Americans with various jobs. Ray directs. | Previews Sept. 30-Oct. 6; opens Oct. 7 and runs through Oct. 30

 9  Dracula the Melodrama

Pocket Sandwich Theatre, Dallas

Look, there's a lot of seriousness going on with the election, even if some of it is pure comedy.

 10  Hamlet

Drag Strip Courage | Arts Fifth Avenue, Fort Worth

 PAY WHAT YOU CAN  What's new about the world's most famous play? In this staging from Drag Strip Courage, as the annual Shakespeare in the Parking Lot production, there's an all-female cast, framed as a traveling women's ensemble called Daughters of York bring their Hamlet to the U.S. Nicholas Zebrun directs, and in his notes he writes: "We hope to present to you a bold, re-invigorated Hamlet, free of the traditional approaches, fastened into something new and original. It will not please everyone. That is part of the charm and ubiquity of Shakespeare: he is always malleable to a new concept. May ours provide, if not complete understanding of Hamlet the character, a more charitable understanding of Hamlet the play." Performance is outside, and is by donation. | Sept. 30-Oct. 8

 ROAD TRIP! 

Each week we'll highlight at least one performance in a city outside of Dallas-Fort Worth that's still reasonably drivable. Because this is Texas, that means five hours or less, one way. So, look for recommendations in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, etc.

This week we're going with two events, south and north of us:
