FEATURES & INTERVIEWS

Red Bull Flying Bach

Places! Jan. 12-18, 2017

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



published Wednesday, January 11, 2017

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: There are three major dance events in downtown Dallas, with the Red Bull Flying Bach (breakdancing to classical music!), the return of Pilobolus Dance Theater (thanks TITAS!) and the third Rhythm in Fusion Festival showcase. Also, Second Thought is Grounded, the Dallas and Fort Worth symphonies have stimulating programs, and you can get political performance on all sides of the aisle.

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!
