Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Fangs For The Memories

A night of culture shouldn’t be scary. It should be very, very scary!

Just in time for Halloween (or “The Non-Denominational Pumpkin, Ghost, And Autumn Leaves Festival That Just Happens To Fall On October 31” as we think it’s now called in public schools), TITAS and the AT&T Performing Arts Center are ready to frighten you out of your finest pants. Well, only if you’re so nelly that a little spooky music makes you shake in your Ted Baker boots like a little girl.

This Saturday night, something creepy’s afoot at the Winspear Opera House (and it has nothing to do with Andrew Lloyd Webber and a fog machine). Instead, thrill to a screening of the 1931 film DRACULA starring Bela Lugosi, with composer Philip Glass and the Philip Glass Ensemmble. (And thanks, Wikipedia, until today we thought Philip Glass was Jan Brady’s imaginary boyfriend)!

Party like it’s 19th Century Transylvania and wear your best vampire costume. Or come in your finest business casual (that’s what we call the “victim” costume). This will be one of the first opportunities to see a show in the newly opened opera house, so that’s reason enough to get on www.attpac.org right now.

But it’s also the ideal event to get you in the right mood for the Cedar Springs street party later that evening. Because it’s always good to balance out a night of debauchery with a couple hours of culture. It’s like a law or something.

Tickets: $19 – $127
