Places! Oct. 6-12, 2016

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



published Thursday, October 6, 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: Kitchen Dog Theater goes on with its favorite playwright, Dallas Black Dance Theatre does its annual tribute to African dance, WingSpan Theatre Company drops some Breadcrumbs, and there are season-opening shows at Stage West, WaterTower Theatre, PrismCo. Also, Radiohead songs performed by classical pianists.

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  A Stain Upon the Silence: Beckett's Bequest

Kitchen Dog Theater | Trinity River Arts Center, Dallas

The Kitchen Dogs love them some Samuel Beckett. The theater's name comes from his play Waiting for Godot, arguably the most important play of the 20th century. Over 25 years, the K-Dogs have done Godot and Happy Days, as well as two evenings of short Beckett plays: Footballs and Play in the early '90sl and in 1997, Not I, Act Without Words II and Krapp's Last Tape. What's interesting about this compilation, opening the 26th season, is that while there are two Beckett pieces, A Piece of Monologue and Rockaby, the other works are by playwrights inspired by Beckett. They include Tongues by Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin; the regional premieres of Pickling by Suzan-Lori Parks and Behold the Coach, in a Blazer, Uninsured by Will Eno; and the world premiere of Abe Koogler's Lisa, My Friend, commissioned by KDT. Directed by Tim Johnson, the ensemble features KDT Artistic Company Members Rhonda Boutté and Max Hartman alongside John S. Davies and Janielle Kastner. Note that this is the first show at Kitchen Dog Theater's new temporary home at the Trinity River Arts Center, which is likely to be KDT's home base for at least a couple of seasons until they get a newly purchased building in the Northern Design District renovated. | Oct. 7-29

If you haven't yet seen Matthew Paul Olmos' haunting first part of a trilogy, about a woman in a Mexican border town who becomes a sheriff, then you just have a few more performances at Undermain Theatre. It's especially worth seeing considering there will be parts two and three in subsequent seasons, and those will be world premieres developed at Undermain. | Closes Saturday
