<em>Passing Strange</em>&nbsp;at Theatre Three

Places! Feb. 27-March 5, 2017

This week's best bets of which performing arts events opening on local stages. Plus the last chance shows.

published Monday, February 27, 2017

Welcome to our weekly mega-list of performing arts happenings on TheaterJones! It now covers a Monday-to-Sunday 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 Theater Center has a free Tempest, Texas Ballet Theater has two world premieres, Theatre Three gets ready to rock it out with Passing Strange, and Cara Mía Theatre has a new-to-Dallas Quiara Alegría Hudes work. Plus: Sharks and Jets in Fort Worth, Rach and Rach at the Meyerson, Luke Wilson and Octavio Solis read at the Dallas Museum of Art, and lots 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!

 1  The Tempest

Dallas Theater Center and Public Works | AT&T Performing Arts Center, Wyly Theatre

Dallas is the first city outside of New York to participate in the Public Theater's Public Works program, in which community members perform a Shakespeare play with professional actors and designers and a director. Kevin Moriarty directs the production, The Tempest—which by the way will be the first play to have had two productions in the Wyly, after the first in 2011. The program is headed by the Public's Lear deBessonet, who won a Meadows Grant for this production.

The professional actors are Broadway great Andre de Shields as Prospero; DTC Brierely Resident Acting Company members Ace Anderson as Triculo, Liz Mikel as Ariel and Alex Organ as Caliban; and Rodney Garza as Stephano. The community organizations involved are Bachman Lake Together, City of Dallas Park and Recreation, Jubilee Park and Community Center, Literacy Instruction for Texas and Vickery Meadow Learning Center along with cameo performances by Rickie Rush's Living Sound Choir from Inspiring Body of Christ Church, Sam Lao, Townview High School Big D Drumline, Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, Northlake Children’s Chorus, Inner City All-Stars Brass Band and Mitotiliztli Yaoyollohtli Aztec Dancers.

Bonus: Mayor Mike Rawlings will have a cameo performance on March 3 and will be rotating the role of wedding officiant with Councilman Adam McGough, Councilman Adam Medrano and Voice of the Dallas Cowboys Brad Sham | 8 p.m. Friday, March 3; 2:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday, March 4; and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, March 5

 2  Rooster + Smith + Scher

Texas Ballet Theater | Bass Performance Hall, Fort Worth

You want new works by contemporary choreographers? Texas Ballet Theater has been doing that more and more in recent seasons, but usually with one brand new work on a mixed repertory program. This time there are two: A Full Life by Avi Scher, which uses Shields-Collins Bray on piano, on works by Liszt, Mendelssohn, Bach and Glinka along with contemporary composer Missy Mazolli; and Garrett Smith’s Imbue, which uses Philip Glass’ Cello Concerto No. 1, and deals with change in humans as we grow older, with striking differences in costume and theme for the men and the women. The third work on the program is a contemporary classic, in a TBT company premiere, of Christopher Bruce's 1991 work Rooster, which uses eight 1960s songs from the Rolling Stones. | 8 p.m. Friday, March 3; 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, March 4; 2 p.m. Sunday, March 5

Passing Strange at Theatre Three


 3  Passing Strange

Theatre Three, Dallas

Dude, if you haven't seen Stew and Heidi Rodewald's Tony-nominated musical Passing Strange, or the HBO filming of the Broadway production that starred Stew, well, we don't want to spoil it here. But it's one of those shows you'll leave saying "I've never seen anything like that," followed by "I must immediately buy another ticket." It's a fascinating journey through one musician's story, which of course is about something bigger than him. Vickie Washington directs, and Calvin Scott Roberts stars in the lead role of the Narrator. Also with Darren McElroy, Nikka Morton, Ayanna Edwards, Cam Kirkpatrick, Quintin Jones and Cherish Robinson. | Previews March 2-5; opens Monday, March 6 and runs through March 26

The story: "A boy is born into a humble farming family on a Latin American island, but after his first taste of a cold Coca-Cola, he dreams of a world beyond his family's meager acre. Yemaya’s Belly follows the boy's epic journey into manhood and materialism, from farm to city, to a raft sailing to the north to meet the 'President of America'." Ahem. | Previews March 3; opens Saturday, March 4 and runs through March 19

Bruce DuBose and Christopher Dontrell Piper in Galileo



There are many plays, classic and contemporary, that offer commentary on Trump's America, but, man, probably few are as thought-provoking and lingering as Brecht's play about the scientist whose government, which was the church, punished him for his outrageous discoveries. You know, the ones that were true. Because science. Katherine Owens' production at the Undermain understands Brecht, and Bruce DuBose gives one of the greatest of his many great performances in the title role. | Closes Saturday

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.
