This week we hang on the coattails of anybody’s party – regular New Year gatherings, Chinese New Year, a Scottish guy doing stand up in the beginnings of New Year…anything counts. So toss those resolutions aside like a drag queen tosses a press-on nail and get to celebrating.
Saturday, January 5, 8 p.m.
There’s something about an accent that makes even an everyday Joe that much cuter. Such is the case for Scottish comedian/actor and host of the “Late Late Show” Craig Ferguson. He can call us a “cheeky monkey” anytime.
Tickets $25 to $100
Bass Performance Hall
330 East 4th Street, Fort Worth
Chinese New Year Spectacular
Monday, January 7 – Wednesday, January 9, 8 p.m.
This is Asian action more fierce than Tyra Banks workin’ that Kimono in the last cycle of “America’s Next Top Model.” The evening features Chinese costume, choreography and music “without any Communist Party Culture” (their words, not ours).
Tickets $29 to $89
1001 Performance Place, Grand Prairie
“Please Believe Me: New Work by Brian Gibb”
Through Tuesday, January 15
Bears, they’re not just for leather bars anymore. The art of Brian Gibb features a half-man, half-bear creature in a variety of mediums ranging from ink and acrylic to a stuffed version. Perhaps he used a catch-and-release program at The Eagle to catch his muses?
Tuesdays through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.
2919-C Commerce Street, Dallas
The Goodbye Girl
Through January 20
No, it’s not the colloquial conversation closer used by gay men worldwide (“goodbye, girl”), this is Neil Simon musical about a dumped divorcee who becomes the unwilling roommate of a struggling New York actor.
Tickets $15 to $40
2800 Routh (The Quadrangle), Dallas
