<em>An American in Paris</em>

Places! Jan. 26-Feb. 1, 2017

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



published Thursday, January 26, 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: Dallas finds An American in Paris, Auntie Mame makes her way to Irving, there's a lot of interesting dance from a national event presented by Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Matthew Posey finds a wacky way to be super-timely (which is why we love him), and there are a number of benefit performances for various causes and tragedies. 

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  An American in Paris

Dallas Summer Musicals | Music Hall at Fair Park, Dallas

If you already love the 1951 Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron movie, you know this is a show packed with terrific dance. For the stage musical, which was nominated for a bunch of Tonys in 2015 (it was best for Best Musical by Fun Home). The musical features choreography by acclaimed Christopher Wheeldon (he won a Tony), and of course there's that Gershwin music. Playwright Craig Lucas (Prelude to a Kiss) wrote the book. The national tour opens Dallas Summer Musicals' 2017 season at the Music Hall at Fair Park. After two weeks in Dallas, it moves to Fort Worth's Bass Performance Hall for a week. | Jan. 31-Feb. 12 in Dallas; and Feb. 14-19 in Fort Worth

Mr. Bobaganush at Ochre House

 

 6  Dr. Bobaganush

The Ochre House Theater, Dallas

Let's hear it for another Matthew Posey original. The Ochre House Theater opens the year with this new play about a mystic of the ancient arts who opens his traveling show, "Dr. Bobaganush and His Wonderful World of the Bizarre and Macabre." The press release describes it thusly: "The Nazis are on the rise. The systematic annihilation of Jews, Romas, Homosexuals, or any faction that does not fit the Third Reich's ideology of the Master Race, begins. During these unthinkable and horrifying times, Dr. Bobaganush heralds the cause to help the persecuted at a price larger than he can imagine. Dr. Bobaganush is a biting musical satire that delves into humankind's relationship to Fascism. Live original music, dance, new vaudeville, and spectacle, make up an evening of riveting theater." Yes, and sounds oh-so-timely. | Jan. 28-Feb. 18
