The musicals at Bass Hall next season include Sister Act and Les Mis. Also on an eclectic lineup: puppets, Meredith Viera Productions and celeb chefs Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert.



published Thursday, April 26, 2012

The 2012-'13 season for Performing Arts Fort Worth, the group that presents at Bass Performance Hall and McDavid Studio, has been announced. As in recent years, the series are broken down into categories like Broadway at the Bass, Broadway Off Bass (in McDavid Studio), Family Series and Popular Entertainment Series.

For the touring musicals, the line-up is mostly tours we've seen in Dallas in 2011 and 2012 (or will see soon this year), including Les Misérables, West Side Story, Memphis, Million Dollar Quartet and Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby. The new title is the tour of the 2011 Broadway musical Sister Act, based on the popular movie that starred Whoppi Goldberg. However, although this hasn't been officially announced yet, Dallas Summer Musicals will have it for two weeks befor it hops over to Fort Worth in June 2013.

As for the special events and McDavid series, we'll have the return of Dixie's Tupperware Party, the Midtown Men, Tony Bennett and The Black Watch; plus a puppet extravaganza called "Stuffed and Unstrung," the Reduced Shakespeare Company and a tantalyzing event called "Good vs. Evil: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain & Eric Ripert." Yeah, we know who's good and who's evil in that pair, and we love'em both equally. Well, maybe evil just a little more.

And can we just express some disappointment that there isn't a strictly dance event on the season this year?
