Places! Oct. 12-18, 2017

Here's the week's best bets for theater, dance, classical music, opera, comedy, spoken word, cabaret and other performing arts in North Texas.



published Thursday, October 12, 2017

Welcome to Places!, which returns to a Thursday-to-Wednesday cycle and rounds up our picks for the best theater, dance, classical music, opera, comedy, spoken word/poetry, cabaret and other performing arts on local stages and arts on film 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: Amphibian has a world premiere; WaterTower and Stage West have regional premieres; Teatro Dallas opens adaptations of important Latin American writers; and a ton of classical music organizations begin their seasons this week. Lots of good comedy, too. Plus: Edith Piaf, puppets with classical music, two films with original scores played live, and spooky goings-on underneath the Bath House Cultural Center.

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. The list is still growing with the new seasons, and should be full in the next few weeks.

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!

A Lost Leonardo at Amphibian Stage Productions

 

 1  A Lost Leonardo

Amphibian Stage Productions | Fort Worth

Amphibian's second world premiere of 2017 was first seen at this theater as a staged reading in 2015, under the title Daedalus. This new play from David Davalos, best known for Wittenberg, finds Leonard da Vinci renouncing his Muse because his artistic career is in ruins, and he teams up with Cesare Borgia to change the world. Amphibian's production is directed by Illana Stein with dramaturgy by Kate Farrington, previously of the recently shuttered Pearl Theatre Company in NYC. Matthew Amendt is Leonardo, and the cast also features Jenna Anderson, Jim Jorgensen, Kelsey Milbourn, Shawn Gann and Patrick Bynane. | Oct. 13-Nov. 5

 2  Pride and Prejudice

WaterTower Theatre | Addison

Usually when a play has had a premiere elsewhere in the country, it takes at least one or two more years before a Dallas-Fort Worth theater can snag it. Part of the change Joanie Schultz is bringing to WaterTower Theatre is her national connections. She snagged the middle-of-the-country regional premiere of Kate Hamill's adaptation of the Jane Austen favorite just a few months after it premiered at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival. It coincides with the West Coast premiere at Seattle Repertory Theatre (that began Sept. 29), and the New York City premiere at Primary Stages (opening Nov. 7). Hamill's version has a cast of eight actors, five of them playing multiple roles. The exceptions are Lizzy (played by Jenny Ledel here), Mr. Darcy (John Michael-Marrs) and Mrs. Bennett (Wendy Welch). The ensemble rounds out with Brandon Potter, Steph Garrett, Kate Paulsen, Bob Hess and Justin Duncan. And, as with Schultz's first production at WaterTower, Hit the Wall, there is an Intersection series with talks and events after many performances, including a talk-back with playwright Hamill on Saturday, Oct. 14. The Oct. 15 preview is pay-what-you-can, with proceeds benefiting the Alley Theatre in Houston, which suffered losses in the flooding after Hurricane Harvey. Also, taking a cue from Theatre Three, WaterTower has added a "hooky matinee" in the run. It's 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24. | Previews Oct. 13-15; opens Monday, Oct. 16 and runs through Nov. 5

Life Sucks. at Stage West

 

 3  Life Sucks. + Stiff

Stage West | Fort Worth

Stage West's season opens with Life Sucks. (the period is part of the title), another of Aaron Posner's riffs on a Chekhov play, this time Uncle Vanya. Emily Scott Banks, who directed Posner's Seagull riff Stupid Fucking Bird last season, takes on the Chekhov playfulness again. The cast includes Sherry Jo Ward, who will also perform her incredible one-woman show Stiff, which was highly acclaimed at the Festival of Independent Theatres this year, under the banner of Risk Theater Initiative and directed by Marianne Galloway. Stiff, performed on Tuesdays during the run of Life Sucks., is a frank, and very funny, discussion of Ward's diagnosis with the neuromuscular disease Stiff Person Syndrome. | Life Sucks. previews Oct. 12 and 13; opens Saturday, Oct. 14 and runs through Nov. 12; Stiff plays at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, Oct. 17-31
