FEATURES & INTERVIEWS

<em>Broadway Christmas Wonderland</em>&nbsp;at Dallas Summer Musicals

Places! Dec. 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, November 30, 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: Bells are ringing because it's CHRISTMASTIME IN THE ARTS AND YOU BETTER BE CHEERY ABOUT IT, MMMK? So, yeah, there's lots of Dickens and Nutcracking and other holiday goings-on this week, but if you look closely you can find stuff that's not about candy canes and pretty bows. Maybe short plays about sexual violence? Or three of Haydn's symphonies? Or a spontaneous theatrical exploration that could happen anywhere around you in the city, at any time? Or what about two members of one of the most influential comedy outfits of the 20th century? Our vow is that we give you all the options for planning your week in performing arts. We do. We do.

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  John Cleese and Eric Idle

Majestic Theatre, Dallas

It's a fraction of Monty Python, but what a fraction it is. John Cleese and Eric Idle have kept impressive comedy and comedy-adjacent careers. Idle wrote that Tony-winning musical Spamalot, among many other things; and Cleese is still the best at playing the cad. They'll do some Python material, but really anything goes with these two. A marriage made in comedy legend heaven. | 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Dec. 1-2

Broadway Christmas Wonderland comes to Dallas Summer Musicals

 

 2  Broadway Christmas Wonderland

Dallas Summer Musicals | Music Hall at Fair Park

You won't find any holiday theater entry more glittery and sparkly than this tour, and that's saying something considering all the sparkle this time of year. This revue is songs and dance built around Christmas standards, many of them having first appeared in Hollywood musicals. Among the songs: "White Christmas," "Winter Wonderland," "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," "Jingle Bells," "Away in a Manger," and "Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree." | Dec. 6-18

The Gifts of the Magi at Jubilee Theatre

 

 3  The Gifts of the Magi

Jubilee Theatre, Fort Worth

Jubilee Theatre presents Randy Courts and Mark St. Germain's musical version of the famous O'Henry short story about a married couple who seek to find each other the perfect Christmas gift. Remember? It's the story that taught you the real meaning of "irony" when you had to read it in eighth grade? William "Bill" Earl Ray directs. The cast of six includes Quinton Jones, Sakyiwaa Baah and Bryan Blanks. | Previews through Dec. 1; opens Dec. 2 and runs through Dec. 24

 4  Haydn Symphony Nos. 6, 7, 8

Dallas Bach Society | Church of the Incarnation, Dallas

Haydn wrote more than 100 symphonies, and helped develop the form. So it'll be quite the music lesson when the Dallas Bach Society presents Haydn's sixth, seventh and eighth symphonies—he wrote them short, compared to what we now think of as a symphony—at Church of the Incarnation, Dallas. They'll be performed as they were when they were first performed in Esterházy, where he was music director. After these works, DBS will offer some carols in German. | 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3

» More info in our listing

 

 5  Latin American Concert

Voices of Change | Latino Cultural Center

If you haven't discovered Voices of Change yet, you're missing one of the finest chamber music groups in town. They specialize in new music, which in the context of classical music, can be anything from the 20th century and beyond. This concert focuses on composers from Latin America, and includes works by Piazzolla, Turina, Chavez, Revueltas and Andreia Pinto-Correia. | 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7

Sister's Christmas Catechism

 

 6  Sister's Christmas Catechism

WaterTower Theatre | Addison Theatre Center, Addison

Maripat Donovan's Late Nite Catechism series of plays, led by a Catholic Nun simply called "Sister," are hysterically funny, especially if you grew up Catholic. But humor is non-denominational. Trust us. You're gonna laugh. Usually these shows tour to spaces around the country for a week at a time, but WaterTower Theatre has the Christmas installment for four weeks, featuring Nonie Newton Riley in the lead role. Mark Silvia directs, with music direction by Mark Mullino. | Dec. 2-23

 7  Holy Bone

Dead White Zombies | Various locations, Dallas

You never know what to expect from Thomas Riccio's band of establishment-shaker-uppers known as the Dead White Zombies, and in the case of the group's newest venture, you really can't know what to expect. That's because Holy Bone is "an immersion performance that will develop organically and co-creatively with the city and people of Dallas." Notice that the "c" in "city" is lowercase. This is not an official performance with the entity known as the City of Dallas, but rather performances that will happen at various places and at various times around town. Like, you might be in line at Starbucks and a performer will be next to you, having a bogus conversation on their phone. The initial idea was born out of exploring the ritualism of the American evangelical Christianity branch known as Pentecostal (ritual theater is Riccio's expertise), but after the Dallas Fire Marshal shutdowns of spaces and other political goings-on, it has grown into something more expansive—and nebulousabout being conscious of the world around us. From the press release:

Joyce Yang

"We all go about our way in our habitual world while conducting our daily business, but are we becoming victims of routine, mechanical components in a world demanding timed efficiency? Where are the spontaneous and unexpected flashes of insight? Has our way of being become so controlled and predicable? We are overwhelmed with information, world events, and surrounded by franchises of corporate and political America, all of it lulling us into a passivity or rigidity. Holy Bone wants the pubic to pay closer attention to the everyday where anything can suddenly happen and become ripe with meaning and insight."

The December performances, Riccio says, will be more low-key and exploratory, and will develop into something more cohesive, at least for DWZ, in the spring. But the whole experience is a yearlong adventure. Best to follow along and just take it in, and challenge yourself to think outside of all the boxes. | Performances begin Dec. 1, but we can't tell you when or where. You just have to discover them (there will be clues through social media)

 8  CMI Concert 3

Chamber Music International | Dallas City Performance Hall

Chamber Music International closes the year by bringing together a duo that has become one of our favorite pairings: violinist Augustin Hadelich and pianist Joyce Yang. They'll perform a program of Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and a 2010 composition by Brett Dean. | 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2

 9  A Christmas Carol x 2

Theatre Arlington

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

There are lots of versions of the Dickens Christmas story opening this week (see the Friday entry below for more), but we'll focus on these two. Theatre Arlington does Israel Horovitz's A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley, and Stolen Shakespeare Guild does an adaptation by Ed Monk. | Both shows run Dec. 2-18

 10  Mozart and Salieri

Opera in Concert | Sammons Center for the Arts, Dallas

Opera in Concert is an outfit that performs opera arias and songs in a concert setting. For this event, the group presents Rimsky-Korsakov's opera Mozart and Salieri, as well as arias and duets from other composers. The singers include performers who have sung with the Metropolitan Opera and the Dallas Opera, with musical direction by Stephen Dubberly. | 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3

 11  Denise Lee & Friends Christmas Cabaret

Denise Lee Onstage | Grand Place at Fair Park

Grand Place is the new name for what used to be the Women's Museum, and if you've seen Denise Lee's cabaret series in that space before, you know it can get rockin'. For this holiday edition, look for performances from Jodi Crawford Wright and Rob Holbert—and you know Ms. Lee will do some sangin', too. It'll be the day following her Community Conversation, so she'll probably still be riled up. And that's a good thing. | 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6

» More info in our listing

 

 12  Somewhere Between Hello and Goodbye

Phatthedd Productions | Teatro Dallas

Sometimes you gotta try something new. How about Phatthedd Productions? The group did its first show in August (we didn't see it), and returns with this collection of three Daniel Garcia plays that explore sexual violence and trauma. That should at least take your mind off yule stuff. It's performed at Teatro Dallas, but is not a TD production. We don't know what to expect, either, but let's all find out together. | Dec. 2-10

10 Out of 12

Count me as a fan of Anne Washburn. Her brilliant play Mr. Burns: a post-electric play, explores storytelling and the creation of theater after the apocalypse. In this earlier play, she looks at the most dreaded week for theater artists: Tech week. As you're watching the preparation for an unspecified costume drama, the stage manager, director, designers, actors and technicians try to make it through the long process of teching the show, you realize that anyone can apply it to prepping for a big event or day. Amidst all the minutia and jargon and inside-baseball comedy, it's clear that everyone involved is doing it because they CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT IT. That's passion, for the art and the audience who will receive the art. Paul Taylor, playing the divo actor of the bunch, gives a rousing final speech that simply must be heard and savored. It's delicious. | Closes Saturday
