FEATURES & INTERVIEWS

<em>Silent Sky</em>&nbsp;at WaterTower Theatre

Places! Jan. 19-25, 2017

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



published Wednesday, January 18, 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: Stage West riffs on Chekhov's famous seabird; WaterTower Theatre introduces audiences to an important female astronomer; Danielle Georgiou Dance Group; and there are performances by Bill Maher, Conrad Tao, Michael Fabiano, Denise Lee and Gary Lynn Floyd and more.

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!
