<em>Northside Hollow</em>&nbsp;at Amphibian Stage Productions

Places! Feb. 9-15, 2017

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

published Thursday, February 9, 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: Undermain Theatre finally gives DFW a professional production of Brecht, Amphibian Stage Productions goes way underground, Denise Lee does Tina Turner, Front Line Cabaret has an anti-Valentine's show, and Stolen Shakes has a labour of love. Dance highlights are a world premiere from Paul Taylor Dance Company at the Eisemann Center and Avant Chamber Ballet's revival of Alice in Wonderland. Also: Stomp, An American in Paris moves across the river, and there's an Ozian ballet premiering in Tulsa.

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!

The tour of An American in Paris


An American in Paris

This new musical based on the 1951 Hollywood musical was up against Fun Home for the 2015 Best Musical Tony, and it lost that award, but picked up a few others. With a new book by playwright Craig Lucas, orchestrations of the Gershwins' songs and music by Bill Elliott, and glorious choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, this show is gorgeous, great-looking and beautifully performed on all levels. The tour, presented by Dallas Summer Musicals, closes on Sunday; and then it picks up for another week at Fort Worth's Bass Performance Hall, Feb. 14-19. Go see it.

» Our interview with orchestrator Bill Elliott

» Our review




Each week we'll highlight at least one performance in a city outside of Dallas-Fort Worth that's still reasonably drivable. Because this is Texas, that means five hours or less, one way. So, look for recommendations in Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, etc.



Dorothy and the Prince of Oz

The Tulsa Ballet presents the world premiere of this ballet inspired by The Wizard of Oz, choreographed by Edwaard Liang of BalletMet of Columbus, Ohio, which is a co-presenter of the work.
